Ignorance Lyrics

Don't wanna read the paper.
I don't like bad news.
Last night a man got shot
outside the House of Blues.

I'd like to ignore it.
I'd like to just pretend
that the reason for it
is something I can comprehend.

I don't listen to the radio,
last time it made me cry.
Two boys went crazy...
fifteen kids died.

And I don't know their families.
I don't ask 'em how they're goin'.
They're on the other side of the world,
but it's way too close to home.

I got somethin' to say,
and I thought it might be worth a mention.
If you're not pissed off at the world,
then you're just not payin' attention.
And you can turn off the tv and go about your day.
But just cause you don't see it,
it don't mean it's gone away. hey.

We don't talk to our neighbors.
They've got funny colored skin.
We see 'em out on the sidewalk,
but we don't invite 'em in.
We only eat when we're hungry,
then we throw the rest away.
While babies in Cambodia
are starving everyday.
We risk our lives.
We hit our wives.
We act like everything is funny.
We hide our pain while we go insane.
We sell our souls for money.
We curse our moms.
We build our bombs.
We make our children cry.
We watch the band
while Vietnam
just watch their children die.

I got something to say,
and I thought it might be worth a mention.
If you're not pissed off at the world,
then you're just not paying attention.
And you can turn off the tv
and go about your day.
but just cause you don't see it,
it don't mean it's gone away. hey.
It won't go away.
It won't go away.
It won't go away.
won't go away.
won't go away.
It won't go away.
It won't go away.
Won't go away.
It won't go away.
Make it go away... mmmmmmm mmm
mmmmmmmmm mmm
