Father McKenzie's on his knees in prayer
Mr. Clapton's cryin' for his Layla
Yoko' grievin' for her long-lost John
In their game, we are, after all, just pawns

If I love you
If you love me
If we were all a family
Why did we have slavery?
Why did we just let it be?

Mama cries, locked in her room
Daddy comes home smellin' like booze
There ain't nothin' for me to do
But sit here and keep playin' my blues

If I love you
If you love me
If we were all a family
Why did we just shoot Gandhi?
Why did we just let it be?

Grandpa shivers in the cold, cold night
Nine to five don't pay for the light
Don't got no food, don't got no heat
Woke up this mornin' but his heart don't beat

If I love you
If you love me
If we were all a family
Why are there third world countries?
Why do we just let it be?

Laughter echoes from the bloody mill
Where two men murdered Emmett Till
Sheddin' blind tears for the blackened rain
Nothin' around here remains unfeigned

I don't love you
You don't love me
There's no such thing as family

there must be some kind of way out of here
THERES TOO MUCH CONFUSION AND NO RELIEF

this just didnt work for me.
sorry.
but i had trouble getting through this without forcing myself to keep reading and give an honest crit.
dont get me wrong, this could be decent.

i'm just not seeing anything that i was too fond of.
