Mouthwash – The Sound lyrics

For a long time
I've had this on my mind
Not willing to change my life for your approval
But I'll take pride
And I'm aware of changing tides
And time we all know
Will wait for no one

I said I ain't gonna pay my money
To hear the same old sound
Not after all these years
With my ear to the ground
I would have thought you got the picture
From the first time around
I said I ain't gonna pay my money
To hear the same old sound

This is the sound
Of the people living in the moment
Listen up, listen up
Just look around
This is life right here as I know it
Listen up, listen up

The feeling's growing by the hour
And you can try to talk us down
But truth fears no trial
In life
This happens all the time
Just when you think you know where you are
They move the road signs

I said I ain't gonna be no fool
For some government plans
And stop thinking for myself
And put my life in their hands
While they're living off the blood
Of the honest man
And I ain't waiting till I'm dead
To see no promised land

And how ready are you to leave to past behind?
How ready are you?
It's in the back of your mind
