Blind to The Truth Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In the overcrowded cities where the nights are bright as day
You spend your weekly paycheck and turn your eyes away
From the crisis we've created with our self indulgent ways
Living like there's no tomorrow, well, that just might be the case
Now they're tearing down the forests in the jungles of Brazil
Without a second thought about the species that they kill
But extinction is forever and still the forests fall
And push it ever closer to extinction for us all

But you're so blind to the truth, blind to the truth
And you can't see nothin'
'Cause you're so blind to the truth, blind to the truth
And the Judgement Day is comin'

Now the politicians bicker on the early evening news
Pledging their allegiance to whoever they can use
And the corporate bosses snicker as they watch the profits soar
They don't care what they make next month just as long as it is more
They take our farms and marshlands, drive nature to the wall
Just so they can build another god damn shopping mall
And it doesn't seem to matter if we cannot see the stars
Just as long as they can keep on building obsolescent cars

They're so blind to the truth, blind to the truth
No they can't see nothin'
(But money, money, money, money)
'Cause you're so blind to the truth, blind to the truth
But the Judgement Day is comin'

Now you cannot drink the water and you cannot breathe the air
The sky is ripping open and you still don't seem to care
The soil is tired and toxic and unable to provide
The clock is running out and there is nowhere left to hide
Now there's laws that we must live by and they're not the laws of man
Can't you see the shadow that moves across this land?
The future is upon us and there's so much we must do
And you know I can't ignore it and, my friend, neither can you

Unless you're blind to the truth, blind to the truth
And you can't see nothin'
You're so blind to the truth, blind to the truth
But the Judgement Day is comin'
