Barefoot Truth

Walk Softly

Play

Break down the borders
We've gotta start this nation a new
We asked the Gov. for answers but it's plain to see that they ain't got no clue.
They just keep pointing fingers, you can pass the blame but we all know the truth
And in the end it doesn't even matter cause the only blames on me and you.

Well, can't ya see that the way that we're living
It won't easily be forgiven?
Can't you see that the way that we're living
It won't easily be forgiven?
The house, the car, the food in the kitchen
Turn up the heat, keep me warm when we're sleeping
Can't you see that the way that we're living
Won't easily be forgiven?

Breakdown the system
Oh no, we can't just let it be
I know it's easier to look away but tell me what's with all the apathy?
Well, we never wanna take our time standing in the check-out line
We just shuffle, shuffle, shuffle our feet let me throw my money away
Ain't got the time of day to care it's not something I really need, so
Take go on and take it from me I can't bear to see all the damage that I've endorsed
Oh man, the price we'll pay we should've stayed in our caves and let life just run its course

(pre-Chorus)
Oh, it's such a crying shame
All the shit we leave behind for those without a name
Oh, is it all in vain?
If we can't learn from the past we're doomed to repeat it again and again

(Chorus)
And we say we want no part of this
Than what are we waiting for
Keep on telling me it's almost won
It never should've begun
And we say we want no part of this
Than what are we waiting for
Keep on telling me it's almost won
Then why is it still going on?

And now we see that our ships not coming in
You'd think we might have thought of that before we cast ourselves adrift
We keep leaving footprints far bigger than our feet
If we're gonna keep trampling on, well, could we please walk softly?

Well can't ya see that the way that we're living won't easily be forgiven?
Can't you see that the way that we're living, it won't easily be forgiven?
The house, the car, the food in the kitchen
Crank up the heat, keep me warm when we're sleeping
Can't you see that the way that we're living won't easily be forgiven?

(pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)
