Your World (Knutson/ 2014)

You, see what you want to see

With eyes, opened reluctantly

Your world, as it was meant to be

And your world, it brings out the worst in me

 

I, see what’s in front of me

I, stare disbelievingly

Your world, mired in secrecy

Your world, it brings out the worst in me

 

And when you say jump, they’re with you

The question’s “how high?’

If you tell them to, they’ll lay down and die

 

Time, in time we will all see

That war, continues on endlessly

You world, with more dying senselessly

Your world

 

And when you say push, they’re with you

With you all the way

If you tell them to, they’ll kneel down and pray.

 

 

Your world, it brings out the worst in me
