Rick Imamoto - 1996

 

misunderstandings cover this land
sometimes it seems like the truth has been banned
things don't always go the way that they're planned
we don't always know when we misunderstand

we can try to be clear but will it do any good?
we don't always know when we're misunderstood
don't get me wrong, i would if i could
but i'd be fooling myself and i don't think that i should

sometimes we get high, sometimes we get low
sometimes our progress is so very slow
we can't always be sure, it's just the way that things go
we find ourselves wondering about things we don't know

there will be those who will lie and attempt to deceive
caught in their own little webs that they weave
what it comes down to is what we believe
and the satisfaction we get from what we achieve
