Glue - Restless
(from the album Catch as Catch Can)
© copyright 2006

You can cause a civil war by simply not caring,
how quickly glass houses shatter with screams blaring
from all, walks of life, make decisions more delicate
than a victim looking for revenge against their government,
half the reason i selected this stance,
is the way inside my rib cage the drums makes me dance
advanced passed self doubt to blind curiosity,
cause in the womb i studied martin luthers philosphy,
so i started off positive and came out swinging,
fighting silent derogitive logic determined on winning,
over and over, we watch the world choose justice,
by picking college over strapping bombs to our esophagus,
to find release and please god, doesnít always agree,
no matter what you sacrifice, itís either price or penalty,
remember me for example not or wisdom or advice,
i do my best to hold it down, but canít always avoid flight,

weíre restless, we need a reason to fight
ready on the left.....ready on the right
politics was your idea, do something with your invention,
truth isnít a myth, itís your only protection
donít just sit back and watch it burn,
donít just sit back and watch it burn,

the respect is only given when respect is earned because
you must learn...

I catch the eyes of strangers, who dig on exhaustion,
and whatís itís costing,
my body to stand up straight,we bait,
the hook with attractive adjectives and invites,
with the perfect balance of war pigs and rappers delight,
I want commentary and debates for democracies sake,
not because the bandwagon hates authorities face,
on t-shirts and bumper stickers, ignorance is gloating,
since when did 4 letters words help get people voting,
we jump in between topics because itís all related,
and i want all my bases covered when i get interrogated,
by critics and loyal supporters, of more than, this,
by cynics and reporters on fear and loathing and mis
judgment, study what hunter had on the agenda
stuck in a world of pseudo jesusís and devilish pretenders,
neither one is helping us set freedom straight,
but i have my finger on the pulse and waiting for the target heart rate.

weíre restless, we need a reason to fight
ready on the left.....ready on the right
politics was your idea, do something with your invention,
truth isnít a myth, itís your only protection
donít just sit back and watch it burn,
donít just sit back and watch it burn,

the respect is only given when respect is earned because
you must learn...

Be afraid of the dark, be worried about the draft,
be scared about the threats that may come to pass,
be nervous about your rent, be wary of the strange,
but donít worry about our leaders, youíve got no right to complain,
the worldís a safer place, but the war has just begun,
the strategy is backwards like how raw wounds become,
anxiety, chasing us, always be prepared,
but rest easy that the president and god are the invincible pair,
thatís not paranoia, itís listenening carefully,
they want your passion, youíre savings, devoted humanity
WAKE UP
i was raised on alarm clocks and sirens,
so now to rebel i blow speakers with death to tyrants,
itís my obligation to a nation thatís raised me to choose,
is the strength in my voice and the egoís i can bruise,
for faith iíll taste bullets, for love iíll lose my shape,
but for freedom iíll give myself whatever it takes.

weíre restless, we need a reason to fight
ready on the left.....ready on the right
politics was your idea, do something with your invention,
truth isnít a myth, itís your only protection
donít just sit back and watch it burn,
donít just sit back and watch it burn,

the respect is only given when respect is earned because
you must learn...
