Track Name: Things Will Get Better
You talk a lot about trust, then you steal everything from us. You talk a lot about moving forward, but you don't say too much about why we are behind. You talk a lot about living in a world that I am just not sure I do. You talk a lot of shit, but you throw it out as truth.

I'm tired of feeling like these fuckin' politicians are the best we can do. I'm tired of seeing people sitting around waiting for their lives to change into something new. I'm tired of seeing all the people I don't wanna see in all the places I don't wanna see them. I'm tired of feeling like feeling like this will never change.

I don't believe my best interests are served by anyone but me, my friends my family and the strength of community.

So stay a little while my friends, stay until the lights go up. Stay a little while my darling, it's way too cold to go home. If you stay I promise things will get better; take what you need and don't make a fuss. Sing with me just for a moment, because none of us are here for very long anyway.

I'm not trying to say my life is much better, there is much I have to answer for. I've worked much less than I should have, and I have received more than I have earned, but I'm trying my best to distance myself from the entitlement we claim we were born. So I will help you if I can, and you need it. I sure don't want to see you starve.

I don't deserve anything more than I can easily hold. Anything that's left, was never really mine.

So stay a little while my friends, stay as long as you want. Stay a little while my darling, I don't want to see you go. If you stay I promise things will get better; and I'll promise it till the very end. Sing with me just for a moment, because none of us are here for very long anyway.
