Ten thousand times ten thousand
Walking and marching and running
And shoving and pressing on
Step by step, to the grave, marching on
You have a song; unsung
I sing a new song falling on deaf ears
Unsung

    General CommentI think this song is about how so much of humanity is on the path to destruction - "step by step to the grave" - but when they are offered something better, they reject it - "I sing a new song falling on deaf ears".

    General Commentthis song was renamed to Phil Cosby. Its talking about how people have faith, but are afraid to share it, "you have a song; unsung" shows that, and how people just try to get to heaven tooth and nail.
