Track originally found on the "Make It Up As We Go" EP


Hey mister, hey mister
I hear you stuttering
You’re tripping, you’re slipping
Over lies you’re uttering
Hey mister, you’re starting
To look kinda funny from where I’m standing
Now I’m thinking, I’ve got this inkling
That your time is running out

We’re done listening
To you say, "Everything's gonna be alright"
It's not alright
We’re done listening
To you say, "Everything's gonna be alright"
It's not alright

Hey sister, what’s it take
To show you something is going wrong
We need to tell him, “You’re acting funny
I think it’s time, time you moved on”
Hey brother, d’you ever wonder
If, by closing our eyes and turning away,
When the day comes
To learn from these mistakes
We'll be just as guilty, just as much to blame?

We’re done listening
To you say, "Everything's gonna be alright"
It’s not alright
We’re done listening
To you say, "Everything's gonna be alright"
It's not alright

Get angry, get frustrated, you know
You don’t have to take this lying down
Say something, say anything
Anything’s better than making no sound
If it’s raining quit complaining ‘cause
If you did nothing then you made the rain
Hey brother, hey sister
I think it’s time, time we made a change
