PreSales FundRaiser- Help Owning Class Hero Come Out
so i've got fruit flies in my sunrise
and a picture of some skin from some
cute gal in a cowboy hat
leanin on me with a grin
my fingernails are broken
the country's down the drain
the bastards want another war
and the lies all sound the same

been sitting here waiting
waiting for something
anthing that's better than the wrong
just no good standing still
i should be out there
fighting to help push things along
the news crawl is reporting
at least a dozen killed by
airstrikes by the u.s and the
talking head has been
telling me about bear attacks
and pit bulls on a lawn
and that somewhere on the west coast
there's a baby with a bad mom

tired of waiting
waiting for something
anything thats better than the wrong
i'm just no good standing still
better moving forward
resolve to evolve
bring the revolution on

i hear some talk about hope
& there's lots of talk about change
but i see no difference in the landscape
only in the way its framed
so they relocate the kill box
and redirect the blame
for those on the receiving end
their death comes just the same

tired of waiting
waiting for something
anything thats better than the wrong
i'm just no good standing still
better moving forward
resolve to evolve
bring the revolution on
and i can still see you standing here
with a smile on your face
tell you it had been too long since
we've been in that space
and the country has been broken
but i hope we've just been bent
would be easier moving forward if
i could hold on to your hand
tired of waiting
waiting for something
anything thats better than the wrong
i'm just no good standing still
better moving forward
resolve to evolve
bring the revolution on
