Okay, we can stop now, time to this stop and go
We can stop pretending to be sane on this cold worn sidewalk
We look like fools today, much like yesterday
Much like the times they proved us wrong
We said it couldn't happen, they made it happen
History speaks louder than any other word
Not bound and gagged by passivity or hesitance
Dust bowls blow with our conjecture
And I look around and see rust building up
We can't move even if we try, move
We can't move even if we try, move, agitate
The praise over the recent demonstrations in Seattle
Are testament to the lack of of realism within the hearts
And minds of many activists fighting for social justice around the world
Though the demonstrations were successful in that they did
Postpone the WTO conference and brought important issues
To the front pages of virtually every major newspaper for a full week
They offered only marginal success, as the WTO still convened
And exists as it did long before the demonstrations sparked
Discussion and then quickly faded with all the expectancy
If any other news story, though progress is indeed a process
We must remember that our steps towards justice are indeed only steps
And are only noteworthy in that they will lead us to the next step
In praising simple and limited achievements as great strides
We ultimately put ourselves at risk of being discouraged
To continue after learning that our greatest efforts
Usually yield only marginal results
This song is from the album "Burnt by the Sun".
