lyrics

One day a man called out Jesse James upon a train,
But Jesse just laughed there saying no one is to blame,
For when you steal from the world, there's bound to come a change,
But I'm not saying that I am Jesse James.

And one day a man spoke out from behind Ray Bans,
He sung his words to the world that no one could understand,
He brought forth chimes of freedom from beyond the promised land,
But I'm not saying that I am this man.

I'm not saying what's wrong or right,
I'm just trying to make sense out of time.

And one day a hurricane swept the bottom lands,
It left all homes and people without a helping hand,
It ripped a hole in the world which we will come to understand,
But I'm not saying that I lent a helping hand.

I'm not saying what's wrong or right,
I'm just trying to make sense out of time.

And one day we made a man President of the States,
In a hope to change the face of the entire human race,
But we all know he's just a man trying to fill a place,
And I'm not saying that I'd like to take that place.

I'm not saying what's wrong or right,
I'm just trying to make sense out of time.
I'm not saying what's wrong or right,
I'm just trying to make sense out of time.
