Emergency

Emergency that’s panning out in front of me.
Emergency that I’m the only one to see.
If I could just undo this mess you know I would.
But it stuck much faster than ever I thought it would.

Emergency that’s panning out in front of me.
Emergency that I’m the only one to see.
If I could warn you, let you know what lies in store.
I just might stand a chance of cutting out the war.

But we soldier on, driven by our stubbornness
And words become the weapons in our hands.
They lose all meaning, just empty hollow sounds.
The more we talk the less we understand.

Emergency that’s panning out in front of me.
Emergency that I’m the only one to see.
I can see it coming from a mile away.
And still I say the things I don’t mean anyway.

But we soldier on, driven by our stubbornness
And words become the weapons in our hands.
They lose all meaning, just empty hollow sounds.
The more we talk the less we understand.
