lyrics

Was it you that told someone some big nothing today?
Hide that nothingness in some meaningless way
Jargon-tongue, empty head, withered heart
Don’t you worry now you can still blame the world at large

And do you know or can you see what you’ve done?
This complicated maze of excuses I’ve been led on
Never knowing, never seeing what was done
The talk is piling up and the deed is nearly done.

I was wrong
I stood and waited for something to happen ...
Now I have nothing
I have nothing

Can you understand? Do you listen? Do you care?
A moment’s reflection can ease a lifetime of despair
Instead we quiver, we cower and we hate
Nailed to the dollar we stumble forward to our fate ...
