10,000 Lakes

This song is by Ryan Shupe & The Rubberband and appears on the album Last Man Standing (2008).

Ten thousand lakes of oceanless water
Ten thousand churches to worship the father
Sometimes I think that I will make I there
Sometimes I believe, sometimes I don't care
Ten thousand jewels taken by the thief
Ten thousand times they shake there head in disbelief
See they don't see the future, they don't see the past
They're just living life to live in, they're not living life to last

So give me eyes to see
To perceive, to believe, to imagine the possibility
The possibilities

Ten thousand words spoken by the action
Ten thousand times they never print the retraction
Maybe I'll find it, the signs are everywhere
Maybe if I would I could, but maybe I don't dare
Ten thousand soldiers circumvent the shore
And all the politicians try to reinvent the war
And it won't make a difference, it won't matter none
Because it does no good to speak up when the war's already won

So give me eyes to see
To perceive, to believe, to imagine the possibility
The possibilities
Ten thousand lakes and all along the beaches
Lie the truths that lead to what he teaches
Sometimes I hold it, but it falls from my hand
Slipping through my fingers, like ten thousand grains of sand
So cross my heart and hope to die
Stick ten thousand needles in my eye
See the first is just the worst and all the rest are just the same
But eventually it numbs you and you cannot feel the pain

So give me eyes to see
To perceive, to believe, to imagine the possibility
The possibilities
