With Understanding

We got to get our head out of the paper work
Paper is not real
People are
Paper has no feelings
People do
Paper is a creation without understanding
It's clear cut, black and white
People aren't
Who will get paper cut today?
Paper robs and cheats by taking the place of justice
    No, you can't trust people
    They're inconsistent
    What makes you think you can pin them down
    With a signature, on a piece of paper

    If you understand
    You can trust your understanding
    By knowing what to expect
    You can know what needs to be done
    You can rule your world
    By knowing what to do
    To make something happen
    With understanding
    Instead of a piece of paper
