Al JarreauCompared To What

Now you know You know just how the whole story goes Just against the real and the proudest who laugh Thought I let you know what I'm giving back Confusion, Difussion Just show it, You know it Come'on you can discover (Discover) You know you can recover (Recover) You'd be (arriving) At new (Horizon) It will be (Surprising) To me (Keep rising) Keep rowing (Keep rowin') Keep showing (Keep showin') Keep it true and strong in your heart And you'll get by But only if you'll make it real Real, Make it real We live the lie, deny the love Hangin' on, with a push and shove Possession is the motivation That is hangin' up the whole damn nation Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now! ) Tryin' to make it real — compared to what? Slaughterhouse is killin' hogs Twisted children killin' frogs Fool dumb bigots gainin' power Tired old ladies kissin' dogs Isn't the human race above them all? (I can't use it! ) Try to make it real — compared to what? The President, he's got his war Still don't know what it is for They change the game with no rhyme or reason Drop the mans flag ang they call it treason We're chicken-feathers roasting like a nut (ooh baby now) Tryin' to make it real — compared to what? Church on Sunday, sleep and nod Tryin' to duck the wrath of God Preacher's fillin' us with fright He never wondered if he's really right Iv'e got a fire buring in my gut (I can't kill it) Tryin' to make it real — compared to what? Confusion, difussion Just show it, you know it Discover, recover Surprise'm, keep rising Surprise it, realize it Keep rowin', keep showin' Keep show'em, keep flowin' Come'on with me baby bat this And you'll get by And you'll get by But only if you'll make it real Make it real... Tryin' to make it real — compared to what?
