lyrics

I read the news today, oh boy
Reports about the suffering but not enough about the joy
Really makes you wonder about the nature of some people
You’d think that we’ve come far enough to figure out the evil
But apparently all kinds of heads are rolling in the desert
A little voice so full of fear inside my head just says to
Bar the windows, bolt the doors
And pull the comforter overhead
‘Cause man, there really are some mornings
You just want to stay in bed

So…I’m building a time bomb
And when it goes off it’s gonna cover the world in love

So what do you do when fear is like a shadow on the mind?
Just booze and drug and party like it’s 1999?
Yeah right
But I can still see why folks can chase that rocky road like fever
It’s tough to make it through the night, y’all
The day ain’t no bargain either
I’m wondering where God is
What with the way this world’s been turning
And why it’s always got to be a crisis for any real learning
To take place in a way that maybe teaches someone something
Hey, I got kids, man
And I hope their future don’t come to nothin’

So…I’m building a time bomb
You are the architect - If music we elect - There is no disconnect

What can a poor boy do? What can a poor boy even do?
What can a poor boy do to make this whole world feel it again?
To make this whole world feel it again
To make this whole world feel it again
To make you feel it
This melody is tellin’ me to put these lyrics to it

So…I’m building a time bomb
And when it blows up it’s gonna cover the world in love
