Personal my opinions and observations born from the life of a volunteer.

You’ve tried to hold sway over my love filled dreams
You’ve tried to take away that which is not yours
I’ve tried to give away all that I could create
I’ve tried to walk away for love to come today
We’ve tried to simply unite through the confines of slavery
We’ve tried to undo hate through the use of love
They’ve tried to divide us through the use of differences
They’ve tried to separate us through the use of currency
(Pause)
You’ve tried, I’ve tried, we’ve tried, they’ve tried, yeah.
Instrumental
You’ve tried to hold back my future over their past
You’ve tried to make decisions based upon your personal greed
I’ve tried to show you through my love and heart
I’ve tried to give you the love I have inside
We’ve tried to work together with common purpose and reason
We’ve tried to create together a living legacy through love
They’ve tried to remove me from my service towards all
They’ve tried to take credit for the love inside me
(Pause)
You’ve tried, I’ve tried, we’ve tried, they’ve tried, yeah.
Instrumental
You’ve tried to simply rule through the pulling of strings
You’ve tried to replace me through my unrealized dreams
I’ve tried to heal inside by working freely without love
I’ve tried to simply hide that which I hold inside
We’ve tried to undo hate through the use of it
We’ve tried to undo fate before its simply too late
They’ve tried to rule perpetually through the use of cash
They’ve tried to sever innovators from their creations through greed
(Pause)
You’ve tried, I’ve tried, we’ve tried, they’ve tried, yeah.
Instrumental
You’ve tried to simply hide through using another person’s hands
You’ve tried to simply deflect my future due to their mistakes
I’ve tried to remain silent and accept that nothings perfect
I’ve tried to remain humble through treating everyone with love
We’ve tried to focus humanity on its future through repetition
We’ve tried to see reason through the use of opinions
They’ve tried to gain time through the use of carbon
They’ve tried to push forward through the repetition of mistakes
(Pause)
You’ve tried, I’ve tried, we’ve tried, they’ve tried, yeah.
Instrumental
Yeah, much of it has been tried… (tried)
