From the recording Between Love and Tragedy

Lyrics

(verse) 
I have nothing left to say, all these thoughts just get in the way
Look at the pain on their faces, these are hard times were living in
 
(verse) 
My heart is heavy and my soul starts to drift away
Look whats going down in Missouri, these are hard times were living in
 
(pre chorus) 
And all this tension, just gets in the way
Were hoping for an answer but it won’t be here today
 
(chorus) 
Because if nothing changes, nothing changes they say
So if nothing changes, than nothing will change until then
This will go on and on and on
 
(verse) 
Children rioting, police men fighting, on our TVs at night
Burn, watch our cities burn, yes these are hard times were living in
 
(pre chorus) 
And all this aggression, only fuels the flames
Were looking for a reason to change our ways
 
(chorus) 
But if nothing changes, nothing changes they say
So if nothing changes, than nothing will change until then
This will go on and on and on 
 
(bridge) 
And all this tension, just gets in the way
And all this aggression, only fuels the flames
Were looking for a reason to change our ways
Were hoping for an answer but it won’t be here today
(chorus)
