Soft Spoken Lyrics

I walk this Earth with uncertainty
I just can’t seem to see clearly
My voice is soft, I’m lost in the crowd
But I’ll write a song, maybe they’ll hear me

Till I was eight I lived with a man
With three fingers on his right hand
How can this be? I couldn’t understand
Well, I’m nineteen now and I finally can
You see, I don’t believe in God, I don’t believe in man
I don’t believe in fate or a greater plan
The world is shaped by random events,
Too beautiful to comprehend

Teddie got symmetrical tattoos
Of two friends’ names who died of drug use
Two more signs of the bitter truth
Our lives are fragile, this ink is proof

I have a friend who’s five years old
He doesn’t sugarcoat, there’s nothing to be sold
Sometimes his honesty can be quite bold
But in a world of lies the truth is gold
And it’s getting harder and harder to find
You gotta learn to read between the lines
Even the president and his corporate swine
Will try to please our ears but keep us blind

When I was born I couldn’t breathe
Like I just arrived only to leave
But as the doctors slid tubes down my throat
I guess I forced myself to believe
And I’m glad I haven’t forgotten how
Because sometimes it hurts so bad I long for a way out
But mom, I’m making a vow
You didn’t lose me then, you won’t lose me now

Teddie got symmetrical tattoos
Of two friends’ names who died of drug use
Two more signs of the bitter truth
Our lives are fragile, this ink is proof

Innocence is an art
You gotta work to stay pure at heart
I was off to a good start
I’ll get it back, I’m working hard

I walk this earth with uncertainty
I just can’t seem to see clearly
My voice is soft, I’m lost in the crowd
But I’ll write a song, maybe they’ll hear me
Yeah, I’ll write a song maybe you’ll hear me
Maybe you’ll hear me
