WITNESS              WORDS & MUSIC: C. GRIER (singerfish publishing SESAC)

EVERY NIGHT ON THE T.V. SCREEN
IN FULL COLOR I SEE THE NEWS
WITHOUT FAIL I WANT TO SCREAM
SO MUCH MIND ABUSE
THE LOWERING OF IQ'S I WANT TO FIGHT BUT WHAT'S THE USE

CHORUS:

WHAT'S IN THE CARDS WE WILL POSSESS
IS IT PAIN OR IS IT HAPPINESS
AND THESE THINGS I CAN'T EXPRESS

'CAUSE I'M JUST A WITNESS TO ALL THE CRIMES
AND THE THINGS THAT HAVE TO BE
I'M JUST A WITNESS OF THE MODERN TIMES
HOW I WISH OUR WORLD WAS MORE FREE
BUT I'M JUST A WITNESS

2ND VERSE:

I CAN GO TO TIANANMEN SQUARE 
AND FIGHT TO THE BITTER END
BECOME A HOSTAGE IN IRAN
BECAUSE MY SKIN IS DAMNED
NO ONE CAN RUSH EQUALITY
BUT THE T.V. SCREEN KEEPS HAUNTING ME

CHORUS

IF SOMETHING UP THERE IS LOOKING DOWN
IT'S WITNESSING A FOOLISH EARTH
IF IT COULD HAVE THE POWER
TO TURN TO AN HOUR
OF TOTAL PEACE AND HARMONY
