Talkin' heads are talkin'
But listen to what they say
How they sit in judgement 
An' claim to know the way
If dreams can be dismembered 
An' our worth can be ignored 
Need a new direction  Cause this one we can't afford 

There's bad stuff happening
An' no one does a thing 

What can I do
What can I say
When they just speak at
Us in riddles 
How can this be
Why can't ya see
That they just speak 
At us in riddles 

Got ourselves in trouble 
With no relief in sight  Everyday is such a struggle  Cause they had to pick a fight 

How can this be happening 
Can't we do anything 

What can I do
What can I say
When they just speak at
Us in riddles 
How can this be
Why can't ya see
That they just speak 
At us in riddles 

The peace is the war
The rich are too poor
An' they just speak at us in riddles 
How can this be
Why can't ya see
That they just speak at us in riddles 
We're stuck right in the middle 

 Clear skies baby
 Healthy forests
No Child Left Behind 
Wake up people 

Big Brother is watchin' you
They're takin' all your rights away
Don't claim that you represent me cause 
I don't believe a word that ya say

What can I do
What can I say
When they just speak at
Us in riddles 
How can this be
Why can't ya see
That they just speak 
At us in riddles 

Let's see through the riddles
