lyrics

Verse 1:
It's harder than you realise to read between the lines
You need to focus both your eyes on all the things that you don't really want to see
Take what you get but do not want
Fight the need to feel indifferent
The problems with the world are what they are

Don't look away just 'cos you can
Let your eyes adjust again and recognize that you have much more than you need
Some of those problems can be solved
Don't be too scared to get involved
We all need help
Suck up your pride, lift from the knees

Chorus 1:
Don't ask me where I am, I'll see you later
I'm off to save the world from all this hate
As long as we both listen it's ok to disagree
Let's take this understanding to the streets

Verse 2:
Some things seem more difficult than they should ever seem
What might be obvious to you might not be obvious to me and that's ok
There's still so much we need to learn
Lack of compassion fuels the fires burning brightly on the shoulders of the roads

Don't look away just 'cos you can
We don't need to go through this again
Just thank your stars that you have much more than you need
Try showing sympathy towards the ones who never had a choice
They've had their spines bent by a weight too heavy

Chorus 2:
Don't ask me where I am, I'll see you later
I'm off to save the world from all this hate
As long as we both listen it's ok to disagree
Let's take this understanding to the streets
And show some god damn compassion to everyone we meet

Chorus 3:
Don't ask me where I am, I'll see you later
I'm off to save the world from all this hate
As long as we both listen it's ok to disagree
Let's take this understanding to the streets
And show some god damn compassion to everyone we meet
