Jon Valley – The Stakes (Begging My Neighbors To Vote) lyrics

There'll be a lot of paper burning in the mayor's office'
The night before he hands over power'
(If he ever make's it there, I mean)

Corruption in a small town'
Sounds kind of funny when you're far away'
But when you're right there with it, and it stares you in the eye'

What makes you think people are good?
What makes you think that people are honest?
What makes you think that people will do what they say they will?

Because, honey, it's the lights out'
It's the lights out' but it's alright' it's alright'
I can feel your soul' shining still'
And, baby, I can see your soul' and it's shining still'
