Give Some Understanding

Everybody’s talking but theres nothing to say
We want miracles now but would we recognize them if they came?
When the kids were allright they were soldiers that could fight
Now they’re walking billboards who get into debt to pay

I got a sneaking suspicion it won’t ever change
The Terminators got a grip on the reins
But if you don’t want things to stay the same…

You’ve got to give some understanding
To get that message to the world you know
You’ve got to give some understanding
Don’t make your Mother say “ I told you so “

John’s robbing Peter to pay Paul back
But nobody knew
That Paul already got the sack
And Hollywood’s a graveyard of mistakes and false starts
Like the rest of the world. Broken heart after broken heart

Did you ever listen, could you ever be wrong?
The one you hurt the most loved you all along Its easy to say
But it’s a job to make the grade

You’ve got to give some understanding
To get that message to the world you know
You’ve got to give some understanding
Don’t make your Mother say “ I told you so “
