​Who Will Save Us Now

This song is by Straylight Run and appears on the album The Needles The Space (2007).

Some of us are born, and then some of us are born again
Some of us are scared to death, and some just don't believe in it
Something's always wrong, there's a line, an idea I can't get behind
No one knows what's right
Some try, some just try to find a king, they sing

Who will save us now?
It's our life, but we don't want to live it
We want to be told how
By something or someone who's better than us
Who we know we can trust
Who will always protect us
But keep us scared to death so we never ask questions
Who'll dictate the consequences of our actions
And give us peace of mind about our miserable lives
Confined and content, all we want is a place we can hide
We can hide

So we've always fought our wars for what we're told is worth dying for
Land and love and God and wealth
But men in charge protect themselves
You can rest assured
It's the young and the poor who fought all our wars
Led to death by men
Who they chose and hoped would protect them

And who will save us now?
It's our life, but we don't want to live it
And all you'll get is down
'Cause the people you elect to protect your best interest
Will just protect themselves and all their investments
And even the few with the best of intentions
Will just push their views of what they think is right for you
And everyone else, you can't think for yourself
'Cause you've chosen to let someone else do it for you
For you

So we're left to drift between our waking life and all our dreams
Reality is relative and that's all the advice I'll give
Life and death are hard
They're such strange and complicated issues
So listen, listen well for insight
No one knows what's right for you

And who will save us now?
It's a wrong and irrelevant question
'Cause we've figured it out
With the people who love us
Who call us their brothers through lessons we've learned
From our fathers and mothers, not looking for someone to bind our solutions
To fight our own battles or show what truth is
But working hard to find our own peace of mind
Living and learning 'til we know what's right for our lives
Our lives
