stop/nothin' to say

Stop..

The warning signs are flashing red

The rich ignore the carnage

And we are better off dead

How the hell did we get here

Point your finger it’s a cold winter

Kick the life out of a local queer

Six lucky numbers none are yours

Cross your fingers kneel and pray

Do what you can to heal the sores

Dirty needles on the car park floor

Young and old in early decay

Turned into zombies we ignore

Clean up your own back yard

Tramps and gypsy’s at your door

Seems like everyone’s got it hard

Single mums , dads fighting for rights

Painters painting in black and white

We are going backwoods and that ain’t right

School yards full of guns and god

And they ban smoking from the bars

Bring on the smoking squad

Diluted pop, rock n roll crucified

Girl bands, skater boys pop is the new toy

Even Elvis would be horrified

Stop the hatred stop the war

We don’t even know what we’re fighting for

Stop the poverty and child abuse

Mad men of power are on the loose

Flag down a local cop

Tell him you want it to stop

Nothing to say

So you tell me you’ve got nothing to say

But I see it another way

It was all ok yesterday

Who is the mystery caller

Is he slimmer than me is he taller

Is he a back street brawler

It’s there in your eyes

For they can’t tell a lie

Why do you look so surprised

I know I act dumb

When my heart is so numb

Your silence is louder than a drum

Chorus

I’m not the judge or jury

Inside of me there is fury

The truth always finds the light

And what gives you the right

To lay the blame on me

I’ve opened my eyes and now I see

That you’ve got nothing to say

So I’m gonna walk away

Never had any slack

We both came from the wrong track

Looking for our pay back

But the world don’t keep score

For every heart has a sore

And nobody wins a war

I was there when you cried

Didn’t see your dark side

Me and my foolish pride

My rucksack was already packed

Like a painting that’s abstract

Your love was never exact

Chorus

I’m not the judge or jury

Inside of me there is fury

The truth always finds the light

And what gives you the right

To lay the blame on me

I’ve opened my eyes and now I see

That you’ve got nothing to say

So I’m gonna walk away
