Sit and Listen

20140310-103659.jpg

The world was quiet and still in our minds
But grew louder as reality spilled
Pouring out into our hearts and heads
Clouding our innocents with knowledge
Useless facts about humanity
Understanding that mass of flesh and blood
As if people were simple enough to explain
So we stayed up all night
Drinking together and just talking
Because the world could learn a bit more
Love a bit more
If it took the time to listen
And stopped drowning its self in noise
So tonight let’s drink the world away
And sit together
And listen to the life story of those
Who are worth the payment of our time
And quit wasting our time
On the foolish
