tragedy lyrics – wisdom in chains

i’ve spent years trying to change the world, but it
always ends the same
such a fruitless waste of time, ‘cause it ain’t my
world to change
i never had a change from way back when and that’s how
it remains
it’s such a tragedy
it’s such a shame
we’re all to blame

we’ll do anything for a buck and you know it’s such a
shame
n*body cares where the money comes from as long as you
don’t complain
new shiny chinese toys made from a child’s pain
we buy shoes with blood in the soles, how did we get so
vain?

we lost track of our souls in unemployment lines
we lost our humanity somewhere in our selfish minds

i start over every day with a half a mind to change
but the pressure of modern life just beats me down
again
while the plebs keep eating sh*t, big brother has his
way
it’s just taxes, taxes, get in line or get the f*ck out
of my way

we lost track of our souls in unemployment lines
we lost our humanity somewhere in our selfish minds

help me!
there’s got to be a lot of people like me
who hate living in a society
that takes our pain so lightly
can we get away together and start again?
is it crazy to hope for better day?
can people exist in harmony?
without greed or hate or poverty
or am i just wasting time?
you’re just wasting time
am i just wasting time?
you’re just wasting time

i’ve spent years trying to change the world, but it
always ends the same
such a fruitless waste of time, ‘cause it ain’t my
world to change
i never had a change from way back when and that’s how
it remains
it’s such a tragedy
it’s such a shame
we’re all to blame
