Glue – Restless Lyrics

You can cause a civil war by simply not caring
How quickly glass houses shatter with screams blaring
From all, walks of life, make decisions more delicate
Than a victim looking for revenge against their government
Half the reason i selected this stance
Is the way inside my rib cage the drums makes me dance
Advanced passed self doubt to blind curiosity
Cause in the womb i studied martin luthers philosphy
So i started off positive and came out swinging
Fighting silent derogitive logic determined on winning
Over and over, we watch the world choose justice
By picking college over strapping bombs to our esophagus
To find release and please god, doesn’t always agree
No matter what you sacrifice, it’s either price or penalty
Remember me for example not or wisdom or advice
I do my best to hold it down, but can’t always avoid flight

We’re restless, we need a reason to fight
Ready on the left…..ready on the right
Politics was your idea, do something with your invention
Truth isn’t a myth, it’s your only protection
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn

The respect is only given when respect is earned because
You must learn…

I catch the eyes of strangers, who dig on exhaustion
And what’s it’s costing
My body to stand up straight,we bait
The hook with attractive adjectives and invites
With the perfect balance of war pigs and rappers delight
I want commentary and debates for democracies sake
Not because the bandwagon hates authorities face
On t-shirts and bumper stickers, ignorance is gloating
Since when did 4 letters words help get people voting
We jump in between topics because it’s all related
And i want all my bases covered when i get interrogated
By critics and loyal supporters, of more than, this
By cynics and reporters on fear and loathing and mis

Judgment, study what hunter had on the agenda
Stuck in a world of pseudo jesus’s and devilish pretenders
Neither one is helping us set freedom straight
But i have my finger on the pulse and waiting for the target heart rate

We’re restless, we need a reason to fight
Ready on the left…..ready on the right
Politics was your idea, do something with your invention
Truth isn’t a myth, it’s your only protection
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn

The respect is only given when respect is earned because
You must learn…

Be afraid of the dark, be worried about the draft
Be scared about the threats that may come to pass
Be nervous about your rent, be wary of the strange
But don’t worry about our leaders, you’ve got no right to complain
The world’s a safer place, but the war has just begun
The strategy is backwards like how raw wounds become
Anxiety, chasing us, always be prepared
But rest easy that the president and god are the invincible pair
That’s not paranoia, it’s listenening carefully
They want your passion, you’re savings, devoted humanity
WAKE UP
I was raised on alarm clocks and sirens
So now to rebel i blow speakers with death to tyrants
It’s my obligation to a nation that’s raised me to choose
Is the strength in my voice and the ego’s i can bruise
For faith i’ll taste bullets, for love i’ll lose my shape
But for freedom i’ll give myself whatever it takes

We’re restless, we need a reason to fight
Ready on the left…..ready on the right
Politics was your idea, do something with your invention
Truth isn’t a myth, it’s your only protection
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn
Don’t just sit back and watch it burn

The respect is only given when respect is earned because
You must learn…
