Listen Well

from To Grow by Richard Garvey

lyrics

The life I live
is so comfortable
so its hard to see
the lives
my privilege costs

But I'm waking up slowly
reality's harsh on me
i was never really
living the dream

the days have gone when I've felt nothing at all
the days will come when I fear nothing big or small
So hold on to truth my friends
Hold on to freedom
hold out your helping hand
and truly love will be yours again

I have friends
who still plead ignorance
and they're living in
a yuppie bliss
pursuing capital
happiness

the days have gone when I've felt nothing at all
the days will come when I fear nothing big or small
So hold on to truth my friends
Hold on to freedom
hold out your helping hand
and truly love will be yours again

listen, listen well
we wanna see the trees standing tall
you can hear the native voices calling
feel the drum beating so loud
see the people dancing so loud
only sacred fires now
