Additional Information

This song was recorded in drop-G tuning.


We’ve forgotten how to dream
Used to think we’d make the world a little better
But there were promises to keep
And we sat and watched as things just fell apart

Thought we’d already won
So we turned the other way
Now who’s holding the gun

We walk along and draw a line
To holler at the other side
We’ll show the world who’s king
Before the young can use their minds
We send them off for suicide
With something good to sing

These words are for the weak
For the hungry ones compassion and protection
For those that no one sees
The broken people, man without a voice

Space between the have and have-nots
Faceless men have taken the lot
