lyrics

you stepped through the door
with your foot in your mouth
honored guest at the party
that you threw for yourself
call off the patrons
devour the host
you might suffer in silence
but you don’t suffer the most

so I wrote a letter in pencil
that I only half erased
and sent with no return address
to hope that futures make
but there’s no golden pavement
crowded streets, shaded stone
your future is not calling
your house is not a home

please hold on to hope
the sadness you feel now will go

sold your soul on common sense
in ignorance you manifested
you can pretend this window’s a mirror
step outside it’s clear - you are not alone
sold your soul on common sense
in your cashed out credit over confidences
you can pretend this window’s a mirror
step outside it’s clear - you are not alone

now everyone’s got some syllables
like what is or isn’t great
preaching hope or change
but it’s never what we make
but there are real human lives here
and hearts so filled with hate
intolerance or indifference
the difference is in the effort that it takes

but wait, why should you care?
as long as you can eat
as long as you can get good and drunk
in front of your tv
cause if it’s not in your line of sight
then that renders it unseen
and there are only slogans in the static
screaming from your screen

but please hold on to hope
the demons you fight now will go
