You Can’t Make It Go Away

there’s somethin’ happenin’ that don’t seem right
there’s people on the sidewalk a-talkin’ at night
you can’t quite tell if they’re talkin ‘bout you
but you got a funny feelin’ that it might be true

and you can’t make it go away
it’s gainin’ on you every day
it’s only natural anyway
and you can’t make it go away

you can cover your eyes, you can bury your head
you can duck inside and hide in your hot water bed
turn up the radio as far as it’ll go
you can go to the A Go Go or duck inside a disco

but you can’t make it go away
it’s gainin’ on you every day
it’s only natural anyway
and you can’t make it go away

you can vibrate and meditate, evacuate your brain
you can tune into TV till your eyes go lame
you can grab onto god you can lock him in your pocket
you can even stick your fingers in the light bulb socket

but you can’t make it go away
it’s gainin’ on you every day
it’s only natural anyway
and you can’t make it go away

you can laugh us off with a wave of your hand
you can look down upon us from where you stand
invent statistics to insult and degrade
you can make us illegal, you can lock us in the stockade

but you can’t make us go away
we’re gainin’ on you every day
it’s only natural anyway
and you can’t make it go away

I can show you a dog, you can call it a cat
you can do anything you want like that
you can hammer your head in a solid brick wall
and still maintain that it isn’t there at all

but you can’t make it go away
it’s gainin’ on you every day
it’s only natural anyway
and you can’t make it go away
