Standing Up For Nothing Lyrics- Caedmon’s Call

Standing Up For Nothing
By: Caedmon’s Call

I can’t stop staring at myself
My face reflected in this empty plate
I can’t decide if it’s the devil
Or if it’s just something I ate

‘Cause he’s been down there all morning
He’s patiently waiting at my gate
He’s throwing rocks at my window
“Hey, won’t you come on out and play with me

And every day when I get up
I see folks trading in their crowns
For all these paper or plastic lives
An opiate for the masses hounds

And pride like a vestige of lives lost
The stench of the old folks coming around
Now with the news I heard today
I can’t tell if this world is lost or found

You go, I’ll be waiting here
And I’m awake, no I cannot sleep
So I’ll sit upon this, rock is you
I ain’t standing up for nothing

I’ve never seen my congressman
But I can’t deny that he exists
‘Cause I’ve seen his legislation pass
I’ve seen his name on the ballot list

The same I can’t deny this fallen world
Though not my home, it’s where I live
How can I preserve and light the way
For a world that I can’t admit I’m in

‘Cause I know who I say you are
But these crows can’t be made to stop
So I’ll sit denying by this fire
I ain’t standing up for nothing

Lack of interest leads to
Lack of knowledge leads to
Lack of perspective leads to
Lack of communication leads to

Lack of understanding leads to
Lack of concern leads to
This complacency denotes
This approval denies the truth

But I can’t stop staring at myself
It’s my face reflected in this empty plate
And I know that it’s the devil
So you lead, I’ll be close behind

So you speak, I’ll hang on your words
You’ve got to lift me from this hardened tree
‘Cause I ain’t standing up for nothing
