lyrics

Broad Decay

broad decay/its all around us
flowing forth in rich abundance
broad decay/church and state
combined against us-
we can't believe/we can't escape

broad decay/the empowered speak
but use the structure to keep their
reign upon the meek
broad decay/the willing masses
thought controlled/issued chains
by empty suits and mortgaged souls

we'll share one voice today/just raise
the mammoth and pray

the family breaks and spills its blood
where dreams once stood/to weave
the fabric of what we are/when it could
-but I hear no outcry.

the fire fades/ that keeps us hoping/
looking forward-
but cynicism cuts deep our favor
with its heavy handed sword
no matter/no mater how bad the world
ever gets/just remember this song is for you
never forget/never forget- how far you've come
and you've made your passage/ from a place
of fear/to a destination full of promises kept
with this song I promise/I will be there for you

I will be there for you
yes, I will be there for you
I will be there.

we'll share one voice today/just raise
the mammoth and pray

but children starve without a bed to lay upon
while we market cars the dead are gone

we'll share one voice today/just raise
the mammoth and pray

with broken vows we turn our words
into a curse-
taken lightly/our promises/'chapter and
verse'/but I hear no outcry.

broad decay-
broad decay-
broad decay-

we're bailing hard and we're sinking fast/
our sons and daughters tend a barren
land/ where none can last

we'll share one voice today/just raise
the mammoth and pray

the social climber/a shiny smile
and strong handshake/bears a false
witness/but we still partake

listen to me/listen to me
you know the world/now you make
a choice/and you make it clear
'cause I'm waiting with a promise
to be there for you.

I will be there for you
yes, I will be there for you
I will be there. I will be there.

I will be there for you
I will be there....
