House at Pooneil Corners

(Kantner/Balin...with a few tweaks, changes, deletions & additions...)

You & me we keep walkin' around & we see
All the bullshit around us
You try & keep your head in what's going down
Can't quite believe where this democracy has found us

& you wonder what you can be
& you do what you can
To get strong inside

You search for healing but nobody's feeling it
Somebody's dealing - somebody's stealing
If you say you don't see then you won't
You say you don't know & a change won't ever come

& you wonder what you can do
& you do what you can
To set wrongs to right

& you wonder what you can do
& you do what you can
To step up & fight

Someone stood at a window & cried one tear
I thought that should stop a war
But someone is killing me

& now's the last hour to think anymore
chilling abuses & shovels - shovels into swords

From here to heaven is a scar
Dead center - deep as death
Til the idiots have left

A 40 million dollar party
While thousands are dying and starving

Dedicated to the memory of Spencer Dryden (1938-2005)
