The Taxpayers - Everybody Just Stood There Lyrics

release date: 2010
length: 1:55

While the man in the street was screaming for help from the people nearby, the kid next to him shook violently

And everybody just stood there

While the woman in rags looked to the heavens with her arms out, the other prayed for a god to deliver them

And everybody just stood there

On the floor, in a house covered in rain from the inside out:
Floorboards creaking
Front door shaking
The radio blaring and all the glasses breaking
You can run to the car, drive away from the scene, put the television on, and try to forget everything
But there's a skeleton waiting in the basement, banging on the bedposts, beggin' for his medicine

Everybody just stood there
