lyrics

Settle down and let's begin
Every good time's got to end
I think it's time for you to know
All the people you call friends
Do nothing more than just pretend to
Shake your hand and let it go

Just look around and use your eyes
In every store is nothing more, a cheap disguise
Don't act surprised cause all along it's been this strange

Loosen up and take control
Tonight's the battle for your soul
So choose your side and stand atop
The choice is easy once you see
That everybody disagrees on everything
It never stops

So make it stop, take my hand
And guide me through the storm into the promised Land
Now understand that all along it's been this strange
To sing a song and nothing changes

I'm overlooking town, the sky is clear
I have to say it's wrong to raise a family here
A day will come along when you will leave my side
I could be wrong but we're not tied together

But coming on from deep inside
The beating heart that stops and starts, It's still alive
You can't deny that all along it's been this strange
To sing a song and nothing changes
Well I could be wrong, but I think it's changing
Changing, changing, changing...
