"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Josie Charlwood - All the Signs

You try to feed me with your science
but I find more freedom in a rhyme
And you wish your world was blessed with silence
and I rap my heart straight out in lines
It brings me out of my body
brings me out of my mind
Maybe I could be somebody
if only I were given time
Given time

And you solve your problems with equations
but I have more chemistry in mind
And you’ll analyze your situation
until there remain no signs of life
It brings me out of my body
brings me freedom in my mind
Maybe I will be somebody
maybe I was just in time
Just in time

And they said you’re just reading lines
and your words won’t save any more of our lives
Well I looked at your numbers, your senseless finds
Your greatest science is missing all the signs
your greatest science missing all the signs

You said you’re raising our awareness
so cut down our trees to keep us warm
No amount of figures could prepare us
now our world is hungry with no cure
It brings them out of their bodies
it brings them freedom in their mind
Maybe I will save somebody
maybe you’re just wasting time
Maybe you’re just wasting time
Meanwhile, we’re just wasting time.
