The band in my head

500 Days--Not an Option 
 
Verse:
Voices say to let it rest,
Like that is the ultimate test
Just move on, it's over and done
Just go back to square one
 
Pre-Chorus:
Head in the sand is just not for me
Nor is pretending I didn't see what I've seen
 
 
Verse:
You don't agree so I'm supposed to let it go?
I'm sorry, but this has been a disaster pony show
We need to learn so this won't happen again, 
The crimes he's wrought with his poison pen
 
Pre-Chorus:
Head in the sand is not for me
Nor is pretending I didn't see what I see
 
Chorus:
It's not an option to stop speaking out
Endorsing the disaster he tried to bring about
How can you move on from a nation in flames?
Just turn your face away from treason's games?
 
Verse:
 
I'm sorry you don't like my point of contention,
To stay silent now is to have not been paying attention
You have a right to your convictions just as I do, 
But you want the old way while I want the new
 
Pre-Chorus:
Head in the sand is not for me
Nor is pretending I didn't see what I see
 
Chorus:
It's not an option to stop speaking out
Endorsement of disaster he tried to bring about
How can you move on from a nation in flames?
Just turn your face away from treason's games?
 
END
