This ain't a coup
This ain't a riot,
this ain't anything I ever knew
this ain't alive
but it's not dead yet, and it's between me and you
and i'll try to be,
but I won't like to be.
this ain't the world
this ain't the place I grew up in
this ain't a warm embrace
there's no smiles and there's no love here
still I try to be
what I want the world to be
I won't dive to the darkest place
to the lowest low
this aint the place
where I'd want to raise my children
this aint a race to the bottom like they'd have you suspect
I won't lie for a minute now.
I won't tell you we're finished now.
we're not the devil, no.
we're not, no..
