Stand
Walk in a corner shop

See a shoplifting cop

See the old lady with a gun

See the hero try 2 run

Nothing's what it seems, I mean

It's not all dirty, but it's not all clean

There's children paying bills

There's monks buying thrills

There's pride for sale in magazines

There's pills for rent 2 make u clean

Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother

Woody Guthrie's land can't feed Mother



[CHORUS]



Mothers weep, children sleep

So much violence ends in silence

It's a shame there's no one 2 blame

For all the pain that life brings

If u will just take me It might just complete me

And together we can make a stand



A waitress brings me lunch

We meet but do not touch

On TV, D.C. is selling lies

While in the corner, King's dream dies

Go 2 the counter, pay for me and my friend

A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him

The mayor has no cash

He said he spent it on hookers and hash



[CHORUS]



U will love me, I will love u



[CHORUS]
