I Wish I

This song is by Embrace and appears on the album Embrace (1987).

Original video
Talk about ugliness
Behind a smiling face
Talk about accomplishments
That have gone to waste
Talk about lies and talking shit
You should be ashamed

Sing about togetherness
And a way to live
Sing about the help
You're not about to give
You sing about your enemies
and you sing about yourself
You should be ashamed

I wish I
Could take you and shake you
I wish I
Could smack the blindness
From your beady little eyes

Shout about your anger
You scream about your rage
And then you shut your mouth
Because of your age
Complete the cycle
You should be ashamed

Dream about a purpose
And a reason to exist
You dream about the love
That everyone missed
Throw your dreams away
And join the frightened world
You should be ashamed

I wish I
Could take you and shake you
I wish I
Could smack the blindness
From your beady little eyes

You should be ashamed
you should, you should
You should be ashamed

I wish I
I wish I
I wish I
I wish I

Didn't have to sing this
Even though I, I know it's wrong
