Mutes they like to protest
to disagree between the lines
where the mass majority hide

And on the news it's like Mardi Gras
every night with their shirts off
to shine your ears and eyes

In a restaurant booth
I cut my tooth
on pictures of our sable justice
given the facts who can relax so easy on death?

Love ain't something I remember
trust ain't something I afford no one
lately I remember to forget
can't get shot in the back if you don't run
can't get shot in the back if you don't run

My fate it lies with someone
each stranger I'm a part of
and them of I

Across continents and oceans
transplanted the Great Divide
even though the Rockies they ain't moved none

In an airport lounge
I try and drown
the pictures of our sable justice
given the facts who can relax so easy on death?

Love ain't something I remember
trust ain't something I afford no one
lately I remember to forget
can't get shot in the back if you don't run

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song.

    We are one with each other. Across the oceans, continents and mountains we are all linked by our humanity. Yet, we do not show each other. Instead, we drop bombs, war with each other and commit genocides. The world does not show love or trust, instead it shows pain and suffering.
