​It's Time for Drastic Measures They're Not Taking You Seriously

This song is by Listener and appears on the album Ozark Empire (2005) and on the album Return To Struggleville (2009).

And when the music stops, all we have are words merely
So listen up, they're not taking you seriously
And I'd write the words, if I only knew what you needed
Touch you in the heart... try and stop the bleeding
And all I want is for you to be ok

I'd give my life for you just say the word. and I'll write the words
And tell everyone our story. try and touch their hearts hope they don't ignore me
And all I want is for us to be ok I'll do anything for you just say the word
And I'll say the words, it's what I do it's not my choice
They touch me in my heart, I try and give 'em all a voice
And I don't want it if it's easy
I can't have it until I've really worked for it
Because all you'll have is this idiot
But I'll write the words, and if you give me 5 minutes
I might break your heart... but we're just beginning
And all I want is for our you to be ok I'll do anything for you just say the words
And I'll spread the word as far as this body can reach
Try and find their hearts, no matter how deep
And I'll die for you I love you all with all I am
I'll do anything for you just say the word
And when I've stopped believing
I hope you'll pick up all these pieces that I'm leaving
Because you don't want me if I'm cutting all these corners

And when the music stops, all we have are words merely
So listen up, they're not taking you seriously
They don't respect you, it might be your managing style
If they neglect you, you might try not being kind
When no one likes you, it's time to start docking their pay
What if they hurt you, you might try filing a complaint
But remember sticks and stones, and stick those stones where you can use 'em again
Make 'em bruise when you send that they'll lose in the end
When they feel your revenge. but right now's the time, and it's got to be drastic
Trying to hold it all together with prayer and some plastic ties
No matter what the size. I try and try, and die
A little death every time I close my eyes, and resurrect and pass right by
Another day, another chance another window
But they're not taking you seriously though
We're downsizing your accounts
We're all hoping things will bounce
We got to do what's right for the economy
We have to let you go, because we have no more money

And when the music stops, all we have are words merely
So listen up, they're not taking you seriously
You might try stalking the aisles
Dragging your feet with a sinister smile
You'll know they respect you when they beg you for mercy
Crying on their knees saying please don't hurt me
I have an suv and a family to feed
My house is very large you can have it for free
We have lots of money just grab what you need
Just leave me my life you can take my dignity
You might consider their offer
Just ponder for a while and look like your thinking
But then frown and say they're not worth it
And walk away and you'll feel like a king
They're not taking you seriously
Your oblivious and can't feel shame
It must be how you carry yourself
Your the only one to blame
So listen up
