“How Come”

People on the street now
Faces long and grim
Souls are feeling heavy
And faith is growing thin
Fears are getting stronger
You can Feel them on the rise
Hopelessness got some by the throat you can see it in their eyes

I said how come
How come

Everybody on a shoestring
Everybody in a hole
Everybody crossing their fingers and toes

Government man spin his politics till he got you pinned
Everybody trying to reach out to each other
But they don’t know where to begin

I said how come
I can’t tell
the free world
from living hell

I said how come
How come
all I see
is a child of god
in misery

I said how come the pistol now as profit the bullet some kind of lord and king but pain is the only promise that this so called saviour is going to bring

Love can be a liar
And justice can be a thief
And freedom can be an empty cup from which everybody want to drink

I said how come
I can’t tell
the free world
from living hell

I said how come
How come
all i see
is a child of god
in misery

I said how come
Its just man killing man
Killing man
Killing man
Killing man
Killing man
I don’t understand
Its just man killing man
