Those who came before him, were not full of shit.
He just wanted to play trombone, listen to his Misfits,
Albums in his car, to school on the way.
He had no idea, what waited for him that day.
Made a big mistake, wrote on a bathroom wall.
Ham gallery picked him up, made him feel small.
And we've got better things to do than desecrate one another.
All it takes is apathy to watch another suffer.
And we've got better things to do than sit and watch one another.
All it takes is unity to bring the world together.

The scene in your mind rolls over and over, ya don't just think it through.
No one knows the truth about it, don't know if you want to.
You look hard enough sometimes, you see it in her face,
What she's been through man would rip away your faith.

And we've got better things to do than desecrate one another.
All it takes is apathy to watch another suffer.
And we've got better things to do than sit and watch one another.
All it takes is unity to bring the world together.

    General CommentJust pretty much says to shut up because you don't know what's going on and that it's easier to do nothing but that doesn't mean it's right. Song about how the world should but sadly never will be.
