if you waste your time talking
to the people who don't listen
to the things that you are saying
who do you think's gonna hear?
& if you should die explaining how
the things that they complain about
are things they could be changing
who do you think's gonna care?

there were other lonely singers
in a world turned deaf & blind
who were crucified for what they tried to show
& their voices have been scattered
by the swirling winds of time
cause the truth remains that no one wants to know

& you still can hear me singing
to the people who don't listen
to the things that I am saying
praying someone's gonna hear
& I guess I'll die explaining how
the things that they complain about
are things they could be changing
hoping someone's gonna care

I was born a lonely singer
& I'm bound to die the same
but I've gotta feed the hunger in my soul
& if I never have a nickel
I won't ever die ashamed
cause I don't believe that no one wants to know
