We all know sadness
And I feel your pain
Well everybody knows a little loneliness sometimes
'Cause we're all the same
We all have sorrow
We all have shame
Everybody feels a bit of emptiness sometimes
Now what you gonna do about that
There's a way to keep going
Step by step
Try to fix what's been broken
Brick by brick
While your life will keep coming
Year after year
Drain the pain
Tear by tear
Drain away the pain
Tear by tear
Take a look around you
Every face that you see
Well everybody gets a little paralyzed sometimes
The epidemic of our insanity
[Chorus]
And the mother she waits
'Cause her teenager's late
Till the knock on the door
He says ma'am I am so sorry
And soldiers come home
One leg less than they'd gone with
We all walk around like there's just nothing wrong with it
The doctor he cries 'cause his last patient died
Did I mention before he was a father of five
And the waitress is home
Well she can't pay her loan
She's lost everything - everything
Has no where to go
And the fat kid at school couldn't take anymore
All the taunts and the names and the ugliest words
No one even stopped to notice
Went on with their day
Till he pulled out a gun and blew himself away
There's a way to keep going
Step by step
Try to fix what's been broken
Brick by brick
You can drain all the pain
Tear by tear
Tear by tear
