Tommy Stinson – Hey You lyrics

A thousand fires burn out of control
And no one's ever there
To see them
We're dyin of thirst our voice is lost
From all this screaming
I came down in a lonely state
And now everyone is leaving
Our souls so charred beyond recognition
And I'm trying to find the reason
Yeah

There's a widow at my front door
She said she heard that I was freezin
They said she's done time
But no one said she's done time for treason
They say she don't take anything from anyone
Which ain't worth giving
I say I don't give anything to anyone which ain't worth stealing
Yeah

Hey you
Did you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue
Hey you
Did you come to watch
Have you come to ridicule

Everything's gotten so far out of hand
There's not much that we could do
Hey you
Did you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue

The city is falling apart
And the clouds and the earth have started bleeding
You just stand around like you don't understand
What it is you're seeing
Time stands still like a broken clock
When our life is so deceiving
You got close once before
And now you're only dreaming

Hey you
Did you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue
Hey you
Did you come to die
Did you come to be ridiculed

Everyone's gotten so bent out of shape
There's not much that we can do
Hey you
Have you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue

I ain't waiting for the proof
And I ain't waiting for the future
I've seen too many signs now
And everyone was wrong
I'm just waking up the truth
And I ain't waiting round for you

Hey you
Did you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue
Hey you
Did you come to watch
Did you come to ridicule

Everything's gotten so far out of hand
They say there's not much that we could do
Hey you
Did you come to fight
Have you come to the rescue
Yeah
