CHORUS: Broken-down communication Tangled lines causing confusion Seems we've lost a good connection (Eph 4:26) Cutting short our conversation (Prov 15:23) Broken-down communication Tangled lines causing confusion (2Cor 6:7) We can't read minds so the solution Is you've got to say what's on your mind (Col 4:6).
You've got to say what's on your mind (Eph 4:26) If you do not, it would be a crime (Eph 4:27) To bridle your tongue through the passage of time It will ferment like a bitter wine (Prov 12:18) And if there is no one in whom you confide (James 5:16) The pressure will keep building up inside (Prov 15:1) You better prepare for the rising tide (Prov 18:21) From this explosion no man can hide (Ecc 9:17 & Eph 4:29)
I used to be tight with them (Psalm 41:9) But then me a fight with them (Psalm 41:7) And quarrel all night with them (Psalm 35:1) So things nah gone right with them I used to be strong with them and sing out a song with them (Psalm 55:12-14) But things them gone wrong with them, So mi nah go-long with them (Psalm 1:1) I used to be right And then I'd be wrong Sometimes I'd be weak Then times I'd be strong So full of pride-And then knocked down (1Pet 5:5-6) Why can't we all just get along? Why can't we just get along?
Well you've to tell me what is wrong (Prov 25:11) I can't figure out why your face is so long I know you hold in your feelings so strong But please just tell me what's goin' on (Ecc 3:7) Because miscommunication cause assumption and misinterpretation--you draw the wrong conclusion So tell me if I'm truly your friend (Eph 4:26) This guessing game has to end.
Well you've got to say You got to say What's on your mind (Prov 15:1) I used to be good with them (Psalm 55:12-13) And eat up a food with them But things them gone rude with them Me fight the whole brood of them (Psalm 5:9) I used to be cool with them And sit in a school with them (Psalm 55:14) But things them turn cruel With them So me nah-go fool with them I used to be right And then I'd be wrong Sometimes I'd be weak Then times I'd be strong So full of pride (1Peter 3:8) And then knocked down (Eph 4:2) Why can't we all just get along? You've got to say You got to say What's on your mind (Ecc 3:7)
