If and when We Rise Again - Streetlight Manifesto

Don't you come to me with all your color-coded quotes
Everybody's laughing but they never ever get my jokes
Fool, you're a tool, a sheep
And it's obvious to everyone but company you keep

And don't you squint at me because your childhood was the pits
Every single one of us have trodden through our sh_t
Oh, and I know you're shrewd
Cause I smell it on your clothes
And it's in everything you do

Falling, fallen, we all fall down
It only really matters how we stand our ground
And if and when we rise to our feet again
We'll be on our own

Everything we built (it's gone)
And every one around (is stunned)
We just sit here staring blankly
And everything goes numb
Lord, if I felt a thing
I could wrap my mind around this
And prevent our getting singed

And please excuse my enemies
I think they do not know
I will gladly self destruct if they leave me alone
friend, that's the end of us
Cause you're way behind in empathy and overdue on trust

Calmly, calmly and patiently
We've seen all the evidence
But still cannot believe
and if and when we rise to our feet again
We'll be on our own

Somehow, someway, we persevere
The questions on our lips fall on deafened ears
and if and when we rise to our feet again
We'll be on our own
