Lyrics: 

Kernels of Truth

V1
we look back
hold onto history
when it serves
our treasured liberty

we avoid
fact finding inquiry
when it risks
unraveling mystery

PC
because we don’t really care to know
we only want to reap
what we sow...

C
planting and harvesting
seeds of our youth
sifting and winnowing
kernels of truth
seeking and embracing
love we can’t lose
trusting and believing
the things we choose

just things we choose from
only kernels of truth

V2
we take what
supports our circumstance
when it helps
create our wonderland

we pump fists
and demand reprimands
when it backs
the way we understand

PC
because all that we care to reap
are just those crops
we want to eat...

C
planting and harvesting
seeds of our youth
sifting and winnowing
kernels of truth
seeking and embracing
love we can’t lose
trusting and believing
the things we choose

just things we choose from
only kernels of truth

B
when will we realize
the important perspectives
of other people’s eyes
when will we be wise
and start to discern nuances
between truths and lies

C
planting and harvesting
seeds of our youth
sifting and winnowing
kernels of truth
seeking and embracing
love we can’t lose
trusting and believing
the things we choose

just things we choose from
only kernels of truth

Lots of heart-felt truth in your lines. Excellent pre-chorus. A fantastic, tight write. "we pump fists and demand reprimands when it backs the way we understand." Truth, forget anyone else's understanding...

because all that we care to reap are just those crops we want to eat........not only a great line, but a profound truth.
