  EXIT (1991)
  1. Tools & Drugs
2. Grounded
3. [Notes]


 

TOOLS & DRUGS

Phrases of praise or hate
Created for the call
Or made for paint
To spray paint on the walls

Words are like a drug sometimes
A slogan is a tool of mine
So you ever find yourself, sometimes
Hungry and blind?

I know that you can
Comprehend
That the truth will not be heard
In a handful of words

And we ask why
Can she changes beliefs
Like her clothes, like her hair
You ask, "Do they care?"
I don't think so

Lives on slogans-makes me hungry
Lives on slogans-leaves me empty
Lives on slogans-makes me angry
Lives on slogans

When they reign, we're poor
We have got to know more
Than slogans

GROUNDED

My mind flies a mile ahead
Of my heart which just leaves
As the rest of me arrives

I go to remind myself not to think
(But I forget)
Down it to get grounded
I can't tell you if I've found it yet

Down it to get grounded
It's never a safe bet
