Can't squeeze blood from a turnip
And hold my breath blue
I've waited and waited
And waited on you

You do what you want
I'll do what I can
I'm trying to keep faith
In my fellow man

I have harvested nothing
By turning to you
I try and I try
And I try as I do

I've buttered my fist
Trying to keep my own plan
Oh, the damage I've done
To my fellow man

Like a stone to the river
That cannot be washed to the sea
They keep building it up
'Til it's taken enough
And it breaks a scene
Yeah, we break a scene

Well, I know that you want it
I can see it in your face
It's a desperate reaching
Trying to trace

What some call delusion
That I seen it first time
That's the whispers of hope
In my fellow man

Like a stone to the river
That cannot be washed to the sea
They keep building it up
'Til it's taken enough
And it breaks a scene
Can we break the scene?

Like a stone to the river
That cannot be washed to the sea
They keep building it up
'Til it's taken enough
And it breaks a scene
Can we break the scene?

In the breath of the morning
Where will you be?
Waiting and waiting
Please wait on me

I know it's not easy
And I'm sure it's not grand
When you're trying to keep faith
In your fellow man
