lyrics

I wish to speak for the voiceless
not given any choices
and still seeking out a living
in a world so unforgiving,
full of misgivings
we need more giving, thanksgiving,
praise giving
and forgiving for loving to be felt
within every heart
as they start down the path toward
healing, hoping, feeling
there’s a difference to be made,
wild card to be played,
someway to make the grade
instead of looking
to be paid millions
start considering the children indebted
ahead of their days
taken away cause bankers
borrowed against their future
and now they just
gotta get used to
being used, being abused
being tossed scraps
that’ve already been chewed,
basically getting screwed;
living a life of the blues and bad news
with bad shoes.

These voices,
where did they go?
Why and how long ago?
I think they’re there,
but way too low.
How are we supposed to know ?



I don’t hear enough voices
making noise about
all our leaders bad choices
over the years.
Fear has been fabricated,
the room for debate’s been vacated,
money in bed with power.
But power’s resisting
paying people 12 dollars an hour.
So how are they subsisting?
And why aren’t they resisting?
I think many are,
others are entrenched
too far in debt
or drenched in sweat
constantly they fret gettin laid off
gettin old
before gettin all the loans
and their home paid off
we’re way off track
from we would should be
think of how positive
our society could be.
Democracy ain’t perfect,
neither are people
but we’d treat ‘em differently
if they were our equals.
It’s not who you speak to,
it’s how you listen.
We only hear politicians,
people are missing
from the opinions on radio
and television.
we all have the same vision,
we just gotta raise our voices.
