I Know That

I know that love, it is real
It's just that sometimes I can't feel

Like when the shot slaps or when the bone snaps
Or the way so many of us are caught in a trap

I've got your back

I know some facts that are true, like
The world's wealth is owned by a few, like

Martial beat in the rhythm section
Marching once again in the wrong direction
Any reflection is insurrection
No smoke detection

I raise an objection

Still the blood-soul runs deep and wide
We are the swell of an Ancient Tide
And though for a while we coincide
Nothing's ever cut and dried

I know that love, it's a force
More often than not on a collision course, with

The match and the fuse in the corporate news
The engine of West End wrecking crews
Retired generals' interviews
It's win or lose

I won't pay those dues

Still nature loves to hide
There's so much life on our blind side
And though for a while we coincide
Nothing's ever cut and dried
