Because of the Ground


Why can’t I fly?

Because of the ground

 

Why can’t I live?

Because of death

 

Why can’t I cry?

Because of the pain

 

Why can’t this stop?

Because of love

 

Why can’t they hear?

Because of the sin

 

Why can’t I know?

Because of ignorance

 

Why can’t I fly?

Because of the ground,

holding you down,

gravity’s here

here for us all

keeping us dead

keeping us ‘live

keeping us here

until we all die

keeping the sun

shining down

keeping our lives

from crumbling ’round

keeping our hearts

from breaking down

 

Why?

Because of the ground.
