Echo Chamber 04:12
how long can we repeat what's heard knock off the dust how long can we eat that dirt before it eats us the echo chamber here i come again how long can you filter out truth distort and disgust how long can we eat those words before they eat us if you plant the seed something's sure to grow seems the more you have to say the less we have to show

he was a young kid gone the wrong way on his last free day he sent a man to his grave and the rest in disarray i don't condone what he did but listen to his story twice his teenage life he paid the price successful rehabilitation deserves commutation through barbed wire he did more good than some men not in chains i know it ain't easy to see that he should be free but what's the point of going on without a way to right our wrong we'll free the King! he was a young kid gone the wrong way but his life was saved by a wise inmate who told him son- play it straight i don't condone what he did but can't a man change? i know it ain't easy to see that he should be free but what's the point of going on without a way to right our wrong we'll free the King! free the King! free the King!

Have you seen me at the window baby? I've been staring while you dine you can't blame me for the burning eyes when I've seen you spitting out your wine you say you never mistreat me baby and I guess that suits me fine say you're just slimmin' down for the season honey while I'm dying on the vine Cuz there's something very wrong here and it's been wrong for such a long long time can't you hear me at the window baby can't you see me on the line cuz there's something very wrong here and it's been wrong for such a long long time the way that you mistreat me baby can't you hear me on the line I've been starving while you're savoring like it's barely worth your time that same lie you whispered in my ear so sinful and so divine you say you never mistreat me baby well just where do you draw the line between want, waste, and hateful feelin' while you're holdin' back what's mine
