lyrics

As the sun sets down behind Virginian hills
The lights don’t flicker on, the streets remain silent and still
Those who have want for nothing more
While those who go without suffer worse than before
I’m getting used to the things I need
Being taken from my hands then discarded at my feet
How long can we afford to wait
When everything we need now is taken and thrown away
They take it and throw it away
Everything we need now is taken and thrown away
Everything we have now is taken and thrown away
Everything we love, taken and thrown away
Without the noise of the great machine
You can almost hear the cries of the desperately in need
I’m getting used to the things I love
Being taken from my hands then discarded with a shrug
How long can we afford to wait
When everything we love now is taken and thrown away
They take it and throw it away
Until the day we die
We fight for the air that we breathe
We fight for the food that we eat
We fight for the air that we breathe
We fight for the scraps at their feet
Everything we love
Take it and throw it away
