I was there and I watched it on a screen
All your plans and dreams cut off at the knees
And it looks like we watch in silence but we remember what they did
We won’t forget your blood on their hands

I remember your name
We remember your name
They remember your name
I remember your name

When a man decides to
tell it like it is he paints a target on his back
He does it for his children
that’s what it means to live free
When you got to put bars on your windows
because your neighbors have nothing
bad things are going to happen
they’re going to happen

I remember your name
We remember your name
They remember your name
I remember your name

who stands behind every lie they told
and who ran off with all the money
and who decides if death will come today
when it could have been another way
Everyone will see the why
when they know

I remember your name
We remember your name
They remember your name
I remember your name

The whole world could be falling and still all she sees is god
I tried to tell her without breaking her heart

I spent too much time waiting in the sun
waiting for her to come home to me

But all she sees is god
All she sees is god

I tried to use the words but they all came apart
it’s a man made religion
everyone sees through that house of cards

I was waiting
Waiting for her in the sun
If she wakes up now she might make it home to me

But all she sees is god
All she sees is god

she closes her eyes and hopes for the best
and blame it on anyone else when her plans fail
when the sun rises he’ll be somewhere else
and she’ll be alone

I was waiting
Waiting for her in the sun
If she wakes up now she might make it home to me

But all she sees is god
All she sees is god

I was waiting
Waiting for her in the sun
If she wakes up now she might make it home to me

All we have is our hands
our hands help us understand
All we have is our hands

They forgot what it’s like to be human
dollar signs is what they got in their eyes
and on their minds
Greed’s been around for a long long long time

you got to give it all back in the end
every dollar that you stole my friend
Every lie that you told
so you could hold onto the gold
while your brothers are living on the edge

they forgot what it was like to be children
using toy guns to learn the competition
a real gun will make you understand
they can try to take us from the land
and they will if they can
that’s why we got to care
care for one another

You got to give it all back in the end
Every dollar that you stole my friend
Every lie that you told
So you could hold onto the gold
While your brothers are living on the edge

All we have is our hands
our hands help us understand
All we have is our hands

You were standing on the the edge of your life
I was just an observer
and when you jumped I couldn’t stay there and do nothing
you already had me 
you had me

All or nothing at all
will leave you with empty hands
searching in darkness
for something to hold onto

I was waiting for you to wake up
Told myself it was a matter of time
You change your mind so fast
and I don’t know what you’re thinking
are you done here?
Are you done with me?

All or nothing at all
Will leave you with empty hands
searching in darkness
for something to hold onto

we say things we don’t mean
we clip our own wings
we stand on the edge
but we can never see the bottom

All or nothing at all
Will leave you with empty hands
searching in darkness
for something to hold onto

When the futures on hold and you got to sit and wait
and the engine won’t turn over
and you’re dead in the water
when the smoke clears will you finally see
what others have known for years

Wake up to the life you’re living
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
just don’t use your eyes

I watch my heros spread their ideas worldwide
then they got paid and they got rich and I watched their purpose die
What were they thinking while they were drinking to their numbers
How come they’re always telling stories about when they had nothing 

Wake up to the life that you’re missing
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
Don’t believe their lies

There was smoke in the air in the morning
everyone ignored the warnings
and these voices from the past
telling us we may not make it through the night

Wake up to the life that you’ve been given
they give dollars for your time
and steal ideas from your mind
Smoke is there to blind your vision
See through it with your thoughts
Don’t use your eyes

All the things I see
In a world thats changing in front of me
close my eyes
It leads me back to you

All the things I know
I can’t tell if we’re changing too fast or slow
Close my eyes
It leads me back to you

Everyone wants to be someone else
at one time or another
When we’re together I forget the world
and I remember
I remember myself

When I look around I think I’m taking sickness pills
on a boat in a storm that’s moving left to right

All the things I know
I can’t tell if we’re changing too fast or slow
Close my eyes
It leads me back to you

Information is moving too fast
nobody knows just what it means
do they look you in the eye
when they sell you your multipass
to the events of your life
for you to watch on a screen

We put walls up and we take them down
all that’s wasted is time
you’ve got your ideas I’ve got mine
What happened to our yesterdays
we used to see eye to eye

I was wrong this time
If you have to go
We’ll meet somewhere down the road
 
We say things that we don’t mean
just to carry the fight this time
you’ve got your words I’ve got mine
How could I be so blind
with words that cut like a knife

I was wrong this time
If you have to go
We’ll meet somewhere down the road

I miss my friend most of all
we stepped over a line
You’ve got your walls I’ve got mine
Maybe all we have is yesterday
Now we’ve run out of time

I was wrong this time
If you have to go
We’ll meet somewhere down the road

I want to lift you up
I won’t let you down
I came here to tell you face to face
It’s the way I want to do it

It don’t matter if we make it
It only matters that we try
When you’re down here’s my hand just take it
We can lift ourselves on our own
On our own
 
I believe in you
You can’t see what I see
What was hard is now easy
Perspective is what you need

It don’t matter if we make it
It only matters that we try
When you’re down here’s my hand just take it
We can lift ourselves on our own
On our own

We worry about the wrong things
Use excuses to not spread our wings
if we’ve got the love then it’s all we’re ever going to need
to build something greater than
the world has ever seen

The wrongs things
are still the wrong things
They use words to confuse but still
everyone knows
about the wrong things

How can a man stand up
or a woman be heard in this ocean of message
There’s people that love us and others that don’t know our name
If the message is louder than the voice that carries it
others will hear it and come running
Someday those wrong things they might disappear

The wrongs things
Are still the wrong things
They use words to confuse but still
everybody knows about the wrong things

They use words to confuse
We can’t always trust our eyes
Everyones guilty if you tell it that way
that’s shaking hands with the wrong things
The wrongs things
Are still the wrong things
They use words to confuse but still
everybody knows about the wrong things
