them that had the hunger

from Metaphorically Blind by Chris Hardy World

lyrics

witnesses recall the scene
of a river rising up so high
a breaching of the levee
was just a matter of time

as the water came flowing down
the scene was looking mighty grim
it was finally time for citizens
to either sink or swim

chorus:
and them that had the hunger
somehow found a way
to get up on dry land
and live another day
and them that bought the lies
were caught out in the rain
sleeping through disaster
experiencing the pain

you can take your directions
from mere actors on a set
you can disbelieve your own head
and accept what you get

you can also take it all
with a rather large grain of salt
and then in the face of drowning
it's nobody else's fault

chorus:
and them that had the hunger
somehow found a way
to get up on dry land
and live another day
and them that bought the lies
were caught out in the rain
sleeping through disaster
experiencing the pain
