Crying Shame
Jack Johnson Lyrics


It's such a tired game
Will it ever stop?
How will this all play out
Of sight, out of mind now

By now, we should know how to communicate instead of coming to blows
We're on the road and there ain't no stopping us now
We're burning under control
Isn't it strange how we're all burning
Under the same sun
By now, they say if it's a war for peace
It's the same old game
But do we really want to play?
We could close our eyes, it's still there
We could say it's us against them
We could try but nobody wins
Gravity has got a hold on us all
Could try to put it out
But it's a growing flame
Using fear as fuel
Burning down our name
And it won't take too long
'Cause words all burn the same
Now who we gonna blame now and all?

It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
Shame, shame, shame

By now, it's beginning to show
A number of people are numbers that ain't coming home
I could close my eyes, it's still there
Close my mind, be alone
I could close my heart and not care
But gravity has got a hold on us all
It's a terrific price to pay
But in the true sense of the word
Are we using what we've learned
In the true sense of the word?
Are we losing what we were?

It's such a tired game
Will it ever stop?
It's not for me to say
And is it in our blood?
Or is it just our fate?
And how will this all play out?
Of sight, out of my mind now
Who we gonna blame all in all?

Just the crying, crying, crying shame
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame
It's such a crying, crying, crying shame, shame, shame
