​When One Falls

This song is by 7 Seconds and appears on the album Ourselves (1988).

Look at all the good things
In this life that you have got
You got security and comfort
With a roof above your head

Yet you may find it easy
To sit back and complain
I know I've done it many times
When I've felt no pain

But what is right
If we can't look around and face the facts
Just go through life
Without a conscience or a care

It seems, it's dog eat dog
'Til you're the one, they're all looking to bite
Convinced that you're so justified
But what is right what's justified

Now things are getting clearer
Day by day, this feeling's strong
And as we take a step
It's hard to get along

And just when I think it's over
Oh, I feel that drive begin
'Cause it's not what I take
But what I must put in in my life

But what is right
If we can't look around and face the facts
Just go through life
Without a conscience or a care

It seems, it's dog eat dog
'Til you're the one, they're all looking to bite
Convinced that you're so justified
But what is right what's justified

And as the story's told
The problem's harsh and cold
We've got to end it
With warmth inside the heart
And knowledge that's a start

We've got to end it, yeah
Push for change, why help suppress it?
Realize you're not alone
Honor life, why help regress it?
Can't you see it starts at home?

But what is right
If we can't look around and face the facts
Just go through life
Without a conscience or a care

It seems, it's dog eat dog
'Til you're the one, they're all looking to bite
Convinced that you're so justified
But what is right what's justified
