lyrics

Well they’re lying to you on the TV
Things just ain’t what they used to be
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

They’re telling you that you could be
All that you ever wanna be
But what they’re really selling is volunteer slavery
You don’t own the house that you live in
You don’t grow the food that you’re eating
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

Tell me now have you ever seen the soul of another
One of your sisters and brothers sleeping out in the gutter
Ain’t no roof over their head
Ain’t no comfort in their bed
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

How many times have they told you
There ain’t nothing that you can do
It’s just the way it is and things ain’t ever gonna change
But they’re lying to you on the TV
You only see what you wanna see
All around the world leaves are falling from the tree

All the things that you thought to be true may quickly desert you
Everything you’ve come to rely on may slowly fade away
I ain’t trying to scare you
Only make you think
All about the life that you’re leading
All about the people you’re Loving
If all of this were gone
Who’s gonna hold you up?
