Make Me Believe

Pulled up the news today
While on my second cup of joe
I realized
I don't know anything
I don't know anything at all
How can people be so foolish
How can they be so dumb
See it every day
Never goes away
Leaves my whole body numb

Tell me I'm crazy
That you don't see the same thing
That you see a brighter day coming
And the better times they'll bring
Tell me I'm taking it too hard
Tell me anything at all
That the game isn't over
That we'll get to play another card
Make me believe

Hey people, why don't you grow up
Why don't you pretend to have half a brain
Hey people, didn't you go to school
Or did you drop out
And say the teachers were to blame
Didn't you go to church
Didn't you learn the golden rule
Why do you do stupid stuff
Why do you continue playing the fool


I keep hoping
That the world will learn
But my hope is fading
As I watch civilization burn
I keep hoping
That things will turn
I keep hoping
Our sensibilities will return
