lyrics

an hour staring at this blank page
hunting for the words to say
can't tell who's the hunter and who's the prey

is it easy to talk about revolution?
easy to talk about change?
are they ineffective words today?

talk is cheap and convenient when
our actions don't match what we say
is attention for our ego what we crave?
are we just living through the words we say?

inevitably contradicted
when we question all we know
the reason why
I can't leave my comfort zone

'cause we often focus so much
on the things that should be done
that we essentially end up doing none

talk is cheap and convenient when
our actions don't match what we say
is attention for our ego what we crave?
we'll never be completely right
but we can't be wrong every day
stunned we freeze while chances fade away
are we just living through the words we say?

we don't know where to get started
and we don't start from anywhere

always overthinking details
coming up with no real plan

a superficial satisfaction
bellies filled with empty words


thoughts and actions need connections
don't let your voice be unheard

talk is cheap and convenient when
our actions don't match what we say
is attention for our ego what we crave?
but don't you know that every gesture is important
to make a difference day by day
brick by brick these walls will tumble down
something more than just those words we said
