Ain't No Reason

Brett Dennen


There aint no reason things are this way
Its how they always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way,
we do it everyday

Preachers on the podium speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change,
Old ladies laughing from the fire escape,
Cursing my name

I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing,
You can spend you whole life working for something,
Just to have it taken away

People walk aroun pushing back their debts
Wearing pay checks like necklaces and bracelets
Talking 'bout nothing, not thinking 'bout death
Every little hearbeat, every little breath

People walk a tight rope on a razors edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence

There Ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they always been and they intend to stay
I dont know why I say the things that I say,
But I say them anyway

But love will come set me free
Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set my free, yes.

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on building bombs, gonna drop them all
Working young fingers bare to the bone
Breaking your back make you sell your soul
Like a lung is filled with coal, sufficating slow

The wind blows wild and I may move
The politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no reason or a three piece suit
To argue the truth

The air on my skin and the world under my toes
Slavery stiched into the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow

Love will come set me free
Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set my free yes.

There ain't no reason things are this way
Its how they always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way,
We do it everyday.
