Collective Soul Lyrics


Hey you're now thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
Hey you're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul
The bullets you bite
From the pain you request
You're finding it harder to digest

And the answers you seek
Are the ones you destroy
Your anger's well deployed
Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere

Hey you now hunger
Feeding your mind with selfishness
Hey you now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness

When your prophecies fail
And your thoughts become weak
Silence creates necessity
You're clothing yourself
In the shields of despair
Your courage now impaired
Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere

Your crucify all honesty
No signs you see do you believe
And all you words just twist and turn
Reviving just to crash and burn
You're fighting to the bitter end
If only your heart could open up
And listen

Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere

Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen

Hey your thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
Hey you're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul
when bullets you bite
From the pain you request
You're finding them harder to digest
but the answers you seek
Are the ones you destroy
Your anger's well deployed
Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
as Love screams everywhere
Hey you now hunger
Feeding your mind with selfishness
Hey you now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness
when your prophecies fail
when your thoughts become weak
the silence creates necessity
when You're clothing yourself
with the shield up despair…
your courage now impaired
Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen

As Love screams everywhere  
you kiss goodbye all self esteem
no signs to see do you believe
and all your words just twist and turn
reviving just to crash and burn
you're fighting till the bitter end
if only your heart could open
open this

Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
as Love screams everywhere

(Repeat chorus)



Forrest George

Hey you're now thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
Hey you're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul
The bullets you bite
From the pain you request
You're finding harder to digest
And the answers you seek
Are the ones you destroy
Your anger's well deployed

Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere

Hey you now hunger
Feeding your mind with selfishness
Hey you now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness
Your prophecies fail
And your thoughts become weak
Silence creates necessity
You're clothing yourself
In the shields of despair
Your courage now impaired

You crucify all honesty
No signs you see do you believe
And all your words just twist and turn
Reviving just to crash and burn
You're fighting till the bitter end
If only your heart could open up
And listen

Hey your thirsty
Walking in the desert all alone
Hey you're now searching
Lost in isolation from your soul

Your anger's well deployed
Hey why can't you listen
Hey why can't you hear
Hey why can't you listen
As love screams everywhere

Feeding your mind with selfishness
Hey you now wander
Aimlessly around your consciousness

And your thoughts become weak
Silence creates necessity
You're clothing yourself
In the shields of despair
Your courage now impaired
Your crucify all honesty
No signs you see do you believe
And all you words just twist and turn
Reviving just to crash and burn
You're fighting to the bitter end
If only your heart could open up
