Description: Say Now

I don't think you even know
Just what it is to have a flow
To let it go share what you know
To plant the seed of thoughts that grow
Into a tree of knowledge and power
With branches full of leaves that flower
Into fruit we devour by the hour
Taste some before it goes sour

Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
Say now, say what you must
To Become the sort of person who everyone can trust

Doing our level best to express
The harsh reality of our distress
Not gonna settle for any thing less
Than hearing those at fault confess
And rot inside a crappy jail
Robbed of their freedom held without bail
Whipped like dogs and nailed to the rail
Don’t forget the devil is in the detail

Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
Say now, say what you must
To Become the sort of person who everyone can trust

This is not the time for weak minds
We need the smart and brave and kind
To work together or we will find
The human race is left behind
Left to die in rising waters
Will be our sons and our daughters
Left to die in rising water
Do what you will to survive the slaughter



Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
Say now, say what you must
To Become the sort of person who everyone can trust

So what's the point of what you say?
Are you aiming at a brighter day?
You have the power either way
Will you lead or will you obey?
Obey your ego and your greed?
Suck that teat until you make it bleed?
Or bite the hand from which you feed?
Get what you want or what you need?

Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
Say now, Say what you will
Tell us something that we never knew that’ll make us not want to kill ya’
