Album
Name of Song: It’s there

What you don’t agree with,
What you feel is wrong,
What you deeply feel unfair,
It’s there, it’s there.

So much plastic violence,
Videos on the screen,
Pretending to be reality,
Designed to give us dreams.

They say it’s what we want to see,
Just images on a screen,
Replacing normal living
so we think all people mean.

Well this is their illusion,
Sharing it with us,
They love to share their nightmare
so we all hate and fuss.

Chorus
It’s there,
It’s always there,
It doesn’t really have to be,
But it’s there.
It’s there,
It’s always there,
It doesn’t really have to be,
But it’s there.

Chorus
It’s there,
It’s always there,

But it’s there.
It’s there,
It’s always there,
It doesn’t really have to be,
But it’s there.

Bridge
We’ve gotten used to violence,
Planned so long ago,
I’ll bet your life is nothing like
those images that they show.
They must make constant violence
to justify their wars,
Numbing us to constant hate
and agreeing more and more.
