Lyrics:

Inconvenient Truth
Remember being young in 1962
Fly-by's over Cuba, photos from that U-2
The look on Mothers face as she came through the front door
"Honey, I think we're on the verge of the Third World War"
I went out on the front lawn and stared up at the sky
And hoped that somewhere out there was the Catcher In The Rye
As the world fades, as the world fades, fades away

They cleanse them from the land their blood runs in the street
It's all there on the evening news for all of us to see
It's not enough that there's no rain, food, or running water
But some guy's got to make it worse and have a bloody slaughter
If they had some crude oil the Powers might step in
And save the last few victims cause losing money is a sin
As the world fades, as we let it fade, fade away.

(chorus)
So much change painful to hear
It's uncomfortable to feel the fear
Colors your life like an aching tooth,
It's hard to swallow such inconvenient truth.


Sitting with our children reading "Goodnight Moon"
While "Planet In Peril" is on in the other room
I wonder what the future holds as I look in their sleepy eyes
As Greenland's getting smaller they just grow in size
Will we find the wisdom to reign the monster in?
Will we leave the world intact for our grandkids to live in
As the world fades, will we let it fade, fade away

(Chorus)
So much change painful to hear
It's uncomfortable to feel the fear
Colors your life like an aching tooth,
Hard to swallow such inconvienient truth.

So, meet me at the arch to the King Charles Bridge
I'll walk with you thru the Old Town to the top of the ridge
We can make a toast to the lights of the town
And the last setting sun as it is going down
We'll lie there in the grass like it's 1984
And make love one last time at the foot of heavens door
(Refrain)
Can we hold a moment in the palm of our hands
Can we even find one breath to frame the moment in
As the world fades, as we let it fade,
As the world fades, as we let it fade,
As the world fades, as we let it fade, Fade Way
