Lyrics
Relief
ŠJ. D. Carroll/ Creative Ventures Music/ASCAP
Lately, I have found myself so much more angry than before.
People hating people like we were in some kind of war.
different points of view can exist, be right or wrong.
but I grow weary hearing people shouting all day long.
I've grown tired of some people
who just want to pontificate
loud and rude, almost medieval
I just need a break and some relief
some relief
Yes some relief
I need some relief
some relief

It rained all day Monday and I didn't do a single thing
Just laid around and thought about things I shouldn't think.
I hear about people who are falling off the face of the earth
and I have to wonder if hanging out is even worse.
But even that decision
Takes so much effort to make
I can't even watch the television
I just need a break and some relief
some relief
Yes some relief
I need some relief
some relief

I don't see any good coming from all this distrust
You're lying and your slander will just lead to more disgust.
It's all too much to be putting up with
I feel we're all standing on the edge of the cliff.
You've seemed to stake your reputation
on something that you didn't really believe.
Now as you struggle with explanations
what you really need is some relief
some relief
Yes some relief
We all need some relief
some relief
some relief
