Careful What You Say (Tim Booth)

Words are just signs, not the situation Hopes and simple truth is poking through I can’t stand this separation Someone’s drawing guns on my cartoons We’ve been taught how to read the world But everyone’s got blinkers on No two people read the same situation God’s got better things to do Holidays are full Sunshine beautiful Now the day appears Sunrise beautiful Summer turns into the fall Try to understand it all I’ll become a bum Someone’s gonna hold you to your words Winter snows into the spring Understanding’s not the thing I’m a dinosaur Someone’s gonna hold you to your words I learnt all about nothing in India Bridging is all I’ll ever know There’s people living in boxes Where no one goes or even drives down slow I wouldn’t even bother to inform you Of this waste of human beings Empathy won’t work with reason Empathy’s just a common feeling
