lyrics

Preachers on the podiums speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
Old ladies laughing on the fire escape
Cursing my goddamn name
I got a basket full of lemons they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You could spend your whole life working for something
Just to have it taken away for nothing
People walk around pushing back their debts
Wearing paycheck like necklaces and bracelet
Talking about nothing, not thinking 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath
People walk a tight rope on a razors edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapon
It could be a bomb, or a bullet or a pen
Or thought, or a word or a sentence

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway
Ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep building bombs, gonna drop them all
Work your fingers bare to the bone
Break your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
You don't even know your suffocating slow
The wind blows wild and I may move
The politicians lie and I am not a fool
You don't need no razor or a three piece suit
To argue the goddman truth
They air on my skin the world under my toes
Slavery stitched to the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
But love yep I will try to follow here we go

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day
Ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway
