  • Lyrics: A man stands in line behind her Maybe just too close for some Squeezes her bag beside her One more move and he’s done The more things change, the more they stay the same Another fallen soldier Keeps me safe and free Now I can drive my big car While they sanitize history A pretty lie is packaged You’d think we’d finally ask We let the blind men lead us When we choose to ignore the past The more things change, The more they stay the same Look what we bought, is it worth what we lost When a mother cries We simply believe, trying hard not to see When a mother cries Some things never change Strengthened by his message Steeled by his rage A poet grabs the pulpit But the messenger’s never saved A young man wants a wedding The silent don’t protest You know it saves the family When they tie him down to a fence The more things change, The more they stay the same There’s little room for average And little sign of growth You take the books from children’s hands And you wonder why they don’t know Do you hear your mother She fought to break on through The crushing hand that keeps her down Could be lifted on up by you The more things change the more they stay the same
