In the air I get to smoke a cigarette
I get to walking around the town
On my way to nowhere special
I got nothing to do today
Across the street a guy gets out an old guitar
Further along a girl goes by and I think
You gotta love this city
Look around there's girls all over
Ain't nothing like this back home
A car goes by playing 'A Protest Song'
The guy with the guitar starts to sing along
'Nothing really changes its here and then its gone'
Words in 'A Protest Song'
But what's it really saying about what's going on?
In the bar you got the tv news
You got the prices rising again they say
Five o'clock the bar is crowded
Everybody got paid today
And over there at the jukebox
Someone plays 'A Protest Song'
And people tap their feet, start to sing along
'Nothing really changes, its here and then its gone'
Words in 'A Protest Song'
But what's it really saying about what's going on?
And I wonder where it all begins
Count up all the money let me know who wins
And over there is Rosedale
A kid gets out his new guitar
And starts to write a song
About this violent world
And how there's something wrong
How nothing really changes
Its here and then its gone
But what's it really saying
About what's going on?
