It Never Came Lyrics

by Time

[Time:]
I don't know it never came
The telephone never rang
Same window, same day, same everything
The sun makes me sad, I get happy when it rains
The smiles are the same
How you doing, doing good, it'll never change
Never will, go to hell
Break your back, pay your bills
And you wonder why we drink wine and pop pills

No revolution, just a bunch of talking
You'd go real far if lips were good for walking
Skyline bruised, pigeon shit on the roof
Alarm clock, working fine, so they hit snooze
Wake up, go to work, no break, go eat
Go home, don't think, watch TV, go to sleep
I pray the cycle don't repeat but the cycle just repeats
I pray the cycle don't repeat break the cycle just repeats

Cliché, I know but back to the pen and pad
Paper shower curtains and a black ink bath
1 graph, no para. just mascara on the side of my shirt
No parties for me, cause people just like to get fucked up and flirt
But what's it all worth? When your laying in the dirt
How could you think about love, when you're living in your hurt?

[Damon JeVon:]
Revolution won't be televised
It never happened, it never happened
The revolution won't be televised
Open your eyes
Revolution is revolving in circles
Revolution is the only way we gonna get further

[Time:]
Gil Scotts rolling in his grave
And the road ain't made out of gold shit it ain't even paved
Prices go up but we ain't getting paid
Everyone's afraid, they stare at their TV amazed
Pigs shooting us in the instant replay
Cops shooting us in the instant replay
And no one talks anymore cause no one gives a fuck what we say

Someone was knocking at the door now opportunities missed
Change wants to fuck but you won't even kiss

You won't talk, you won't even hold her hand
You procrastinate but you say you gotta plan
The revolution will put you in the driver's seat
Now everyone's dead and we go where survivors meet

All I ever see are pictures of Nixon
And paintings of Jesus in the wrong depiction
The revolution won't be televised but the second coming will
It's all planned, your savior is a hologram
We're all so perfect, we're all so faithful
So why don't we applaud
So that's why we pull out guns for god
I laugh cause it's an illusion
I smile cause it's a mirage
It's a collage

You waited for the revolution it happened without you
And I'm part of the problem cause I started to doubt you
Now look at us, all caught up in the flesh
Doubted our love so we put faith to the test
Asking for signs, when it's just a change of mind
Looking outside when inside were blind
Now all the protestors are in a warehouse
They're praying to god cause they don't know his where-a-bouts
I shout, not at them but at myself
And I protest my own personal guilt
Crucify me on a picket sign, internal revolution
Instead of blaming them, in myself I see the solution
It was always inside, my fear placed the blame
Look at your problems, they're all the same

Crucify me on a picket sign, internal revolution
Instead of blaming them, in myself I see the solution
It was always inside, my fear placed the blame
Look at your problems, they're all the same

[Damon JeVon:]
Revolution won't be televised
It never happened, it never happened
The revolution won't be televised
Open your eyes
Revolution is revolving in circles
Revolution is the only way we gonna get further

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
