"I CAN'T LEAVE'EM"

Verse 1
The lines of people are still in my brain.
I can see their faces and the hurtful stain
Of neglect poverty and being forgotten,
So grateful they were for little was brought them.
-Repeat twice
Verse 2
And as I saw those who did labor
To bring them aid and do 'em a favor,
I understood the great need of care
Was in high demand for the broken lives there.
Chorus
I can't leave 'em,
I can't leave 'em,
[Repeat Chorus twice]
-Repeat twice
Verse 3
If I had stayed and watched it all,
I would've remained in an empty lull.
But what started out as a small attraction
Has caused in my soul a chained reaction.
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
When I think of the fear and I ponder the pain,
I can't just stand by or simply complain
About the blues I get,
The strangeness I feel.
When I muster the courage to tear off the seal
Of conceit and vanity that hold me back
From doin' what I can to combat the lack
Of concern and humanity for all mankind.
I gotta break loose form my preset mind.
Lead break: -Repeat four times
Verse 4
I can't stay away and to myself lie
While people all over suffer and die.
And though what my hand does may be small,
Together our hands will accomplish all.
Repeat Chorus twice
-Repeat twice
