Album
Name of Song: They tear people down

We’ve seen it for years,
Tearing people down,
We all know who does it,
We let them stay around.

Destruction of other people,
Nothing to do with me,
I live my life on the quiet side
and act accordingly.

Chorus
Then one day they come for you,
You’re amazed and petrified,
Please help me feel protected,
They’re exposing what’s inside.
You think the right to privacy
is really no big deal,
Until they start to tear you down,
Impossible to heal.

What’s it take to care about
the person who’s in strife,
So long as I’m not affected
I’ll ignore and live my life.
We help those evil people
whenever we ignore,
The tearing down of someone
by a horror we abhor.

We help those nasty people

The tearing down of someone
by a horror we abhor.

When horror takes us over
We all complain about that,
We waited way too long to fight,
Now too old to bat.
