(i'm doing this by ear, sorry for any mistakes)

Sittin' there on the edge of the curb,
the people on the street just passed with no words.
So come on let's observe the modern-day marvel,
oh it's just human kind.

Well passin' on by have you not learned the lesson,
Jesus saved the weak and weary from the grips of aggression.
Are you waiting for your chance to make your confession?
I know it puts you in a peace of mind.

'Cause we're all one? just prisoners,
to these thoughts, we can't escape.
Well lately I don't know if I'm asleep or I'm awake.
Whoa, I hope I get this all written out
before my train of thoughts runs off the page.
My thoughts meander, I think I'm asleep at the wheel again.

~~~

Well seen cut to the world,
not even second but third.
How do you class the classes with a number, not a word?
A place where bombing on the streets are likened to a curb.
When I come home, people don't ask you why.
So pick up your own piece of the thread, start today,
only matter what you do, no matter what you say,
one time for the mother, the brothers, the fathers, the daughters,
won't let them be left for dead, no no.

'Cause they're all one just prisoners to these lies,
they can't escape.
Well lately I can't bear there anymore for them to take.
Whoa-oh-oh, I hope I get this all out tonight,
before they cover me up with a yellow tape.
Oh, but when the truth is out,
let it be spread out all over the place.

~~~

Well pick up your own piece of the thread,
only matter what you do,
no matter what you said now.
(x2)

Nobody should ever be held back (held back),
or livin' off what other people throw back (throw back),
there's something always make me wanna hold back (hold back),
we gotta find the love to overcome.

Oh nobody should ever be held back (held back),
or livin' off what other people throw back (throw back),
something always make me wanna hold back (hold back),
we gotta find the love to overcome (x9)

Well pick up your own piece of the thread...
