Angry People

 

(Words & Music – 1993)

 

Everywhere there’s angry people

Silent curses in their eyes

Faces scowling without reason

Full of sourness inside

Like a parade of ornery, wretched, wrathful

Stubborn, spiteful, mean and grumpy ants

We all get mad in haste and speak before

We think that what we said is going to last

If we could learn to feel each other’s pain

Perhaps we’d think again

Perhaps we’d understand

And the anger would go away

The anger would go away

Sometimes we make mistakes

But I believe there is good in everyone

Instead of fighting with each other

We should fight who we’ve become

Sometimes we see but we don’t really see

What is right before our eyes

Sometimes we tread on others’ feelings

And we don’t apologize

If we could learn to feel each other’s pain

Perhaps we’d think again

Perhaps we’d understand

And the anger would go away

The anger would go away

Everywhere there’s angry people

Silent curses in their eyes

Faces scowling without reason

Full of sourness inside

Like a parade of ornery, wretched, wrathful

Stubborn, spiteful, mean and grumpy ants

We all get mad in haste and speak before

We think that what we said is going to last

If we could learn to feel each other’s pain

Perhaps we’d think again

Perhaps we’d understand

And the anger would go away

The anger would go away.

Sometimes we make mistakes

But I believe there is good in everyone

Instead of fighting with each other

We should fight who we’ve become

Sometimes we see but we don’t really see

What is right before our eyes

Sometimes we tread on others’ feelings

And we don’t apologize

If we could learn to feel each other’s pain

Perhaps we’d think again

Perhaps we’d understand

And the anger would go away

The anger would go away

The anger would go away

The anger would go away

The anger would go away

Spread The Word

Tell Someone (you know who)!
