in our defense lyrics – all else failed

for most of us, sedation is wearing off
this hole we dig is just an open grave
so self-absorbed in our own lives that it eclipses the world around us
daily priorities …
work. sleep. eat. breathe
we just don’t know any better than to expect the worst
we just ignore
this is a learned defense
what will effect us later, right now won’t make a difference
don’t try to explain, i admit it’s over my head
maybe uneducated, maybe just disinterested
we just don’t know any better than to accept the worst
i’d walk this line, but i find it is far too thin
i’d share these thoughts, but it’s safer to keep them in
history is being made … we look the other way
we just don’t know any better.
