Yeah, we say making changes
Starts in the little things you do
"Revolution begins at home"
But for most of us it ends there, too
We're doing something
We're making changes
Like changing the brand of crap we buy
We say it makes a difference
But that's just another lie
It used to be us and them
And you and me
And now we can't reach our potential
Without a common enemy
A real war to fight against
Instead of our petty disagreements
But how can I rationalize
My life during wartime lie
A call to action and a reaction
Taking our lives in our own hands
Instead of sitting around and talking
About the same old shitty bands
But war is going on right now
And I'm not doing anything about it
Without a crowd I'm not so loud
I can't do anything by myself
But that's just another lie
