hand made hard times handed back lyrics – dillinger four

i was just a kid when i found out how cruel the world could be
faded pictures of forgotten times, of endless misery
i lit a candle, but i could not know why
we didn’t talk about it anymore, the page already turned
of all the things they had tried to teach, indifference is what i learned
“light a candle and you have done all you can”

well i’ve watched as blind eyes turned away again
seen iron-wrought convictions as they’ve bent

want to believe that it’s not on your hands
so easy to pretend there’s someone else who gives a d*mn
so easy, but so hard to forget

well i’ve watched as blind eyes turned away again
seen iron-wrought convictions as they’ve bent

you can change the channel, but it doesn’t change the end
it looks like business as usual again

drowned in your culture of “peace”
you turn your back to the “beast”
it’s so easy to do
it’s so easy
