So what's it gonna be tonight? Cartoons in black and white? Comedy by an old playwright? Hope I see no prejudice or oversight I just need a little peace of mind So I can breathe easy, unwind I can't afford to be resigned For reality is cruel, unkind I'm standing here with my heart in hand Listening to a distant marching band Calling out the lies on the witness stand Can't hide, you can't hide I'm standing here wishing I could lend a hand Looking for the stories being told firsthand Hoping that the both of us would understand I tried, I tried So what's it gonna be tonight? More hours of fear and fright? Feels like there's no end in sight and I'm running out of strength to fight Another day's gonna bring some light A list of headlines designed to incite I'm not putting them out of sight Just want some quiet while I take a bite I'm sitting here with my screen in hand Scrolling thru the pictures of the broken land I feel like I'm sinking into quicksand I'm dying, I'm dying I'm sitting here looking at the choice at hand Thinking of the things that we all demand I know I can't help but to take a stand I'm trying, I'm trying
