People Want Truth

People want more than they have,
Of what it is they're given.
And first to criticize the ones who serve.

People want truth,
But...
Their feelings get hurt.
And...
People want jobs,
But...
Complain when they work.

People want more than they have,
Of what it is they're given.
And first to criticize the ones who serve.

People want others to sweat,
While they sit.
And people want the credit,
For a doing of it..
People want their dreams packaged,
As they wish them wrapped.
But they don't want to get up off their backs.

People want truth,
But...
Endeavors made with effort takes some sweat.
People want truth,
But...
They don't want it if it should upset.
People want truth,
But...
Stopping others from taking these steps,
Is a movement protested people regret.

People want truth,
But...
They don't want it if it should upset.
People want truth,
But...
They don't want it if it should upset.
People want truth,
But...
They don't want it if it should upset.
