You're blessed with all this beauty
How can you squander it?
I can't believe you would decieve yourselves
Just to forget
The nature of the lives we live
It's really all the same
And I for one won't be the son
Who yields to his shame

I'm warning you
Don't change
Of course your mind
Feels a little strange
From everyone
You stole a page
Just write it for yourself

It's sacreliege to allow
This hate to cut you down
Just listen to the words I say
And try to mellow out
I won't believe you'd settle for
A hope that feels like pain
Just listen to the song I sing
And try to ignore the rain

I'm warning you
Don't change
Of course your mind
Feels a little strange
From everyone
You stole a page
Just write it
It's your obituary

I'm telling you, I can't live the way do do
Without the feeling that's lost inside me and you
A toast to all the captains and the crew
I'll see you on the bottom when it's through

Cause there are no more laws
To protect the meek
And there are no more gods
To bless the weak
There are no more friends
Who feel how they speak
And there is no one listening!

    General CommentThis is a song to the human race, a tribute to all the trouble we've made for ourselves. It's also a reminder to me to stay out of it.

    General CommentThe tabs for this are actually chopped up bits and pieces from two cover songs I used to do, "Weak Week" by Alkaline Trio and "Diminishing Returns" by Harvey Danger with plenty of original stuff thrown in.
