Blues Traveler

Onslaught

Music: Bobby Sheehan & John Popper

Lyrics: John Popper

 

Lies, well they're o.k.

More elaborate every day

Truth, well it's here too

What can you make it do for you?

Greed, it's just a drive

Do what you can to stay alive

Peace, it's just a dream

So rock and roll and kick and scream

 

Now won't you tell me if you like what you've just heard?

And if you think the point I'm driving at absurd

Well there's no need to tell me how or tell me why

But I need to know the reason not to try

Cause if you look around you might just feel like me

And you might notice no one was ever really free

And maybe, just maybe for now that's how it's supposed to be

Could be so far we've only earned the right to barely see

 

The poison has infected you

Have no fear I'm infected too

War, they come and go

No telling where the wind will blow

Pain was always there

Sad reminder that you care

Hate, the price you pay

For thinking you got the only way

 

Now won't you tell me if you like what you've just heard?

And if you think the point I'm driving at absurd

Well there's no need to tell me how or tell me why

But I need to know the reason not to try

Cause if you look around you might just feel like me

And you might notice no one was ever really free

And maybe, just maybe for now that's how it's supposed to be

Could be so far we've only earned the right to barely see

Barely see, barely see, barely see, barely see, let's see...

 

For your parents Ellis Island

What had they gone through?

And if you descend from the Mayflower

Well they were running too

They were running from England

Who were warring with France

Who would conquer Spain

Given half of a chance

But it was the Muslims

Who had gotten there first

When there wasn't the bloodshed

Then there was the thirst

And a hate for the Christians

The infiltrators of Rome

You know that once mighty empire

Who made Africa home

The poor, noble Egyptians

Oh the hardships they braved

Remembering the good times

With Judea enslaved

And the Israelite nation

The very children of God

Killing Palestine's children

And I'm finding it odd

The Earth, a piece of fruit

Don't blame the maggots when they loot

Life just a game we play

Try to live just one more day

Space, our final hope

Throw the drowning man a rope

The choice is for us to say

Completely change or fade away.

 

Now won't you tell me if you like what you've just heard?

And if you think the point I'm driving at absurd

Well there's no need to tell me how or tell me why

But I need to know the reason not to try

Cause if you look around you might just feel like me

And you might notice noone was ever really free

And maybe, just maybe for now that's how it's supposed to be

Could be so far we've only earned the right to barely see

 

I really couldn't say for sure

Like everyone else I know

I'm just looking for the cure
