lyrics

Amazed

Aren't you amazed

At what is going on


After all of the lies

I find myself dispassionate

Hoping for the truth

I stay unemotional as the lies continue

You may mistake

My not being amazed

As if I am unconcerned

Yes I am jaded After 60 years

Of the lies

Of hatred

Of violence

The killing, In the endless wars

The indifference to life

I have become bored with the promises

So I am not surprised when nothing changes
I may look unruffled as I am destroyed inside

Disinterest in working with habitual abusers

Flabbergasted bewildered and stunned

I am dumfounded with the choices offered

I admit I was blindsided when I realized

We have to create the choices we need

We have to create

The choices we need we need

To create the choices

We need
