Verse
It's the battle of forever, being youthful or immature,
A life long fight for self-esteem against being insecure.
Putting toothpaste back inside the tube or taking back the past,
If you'll look at things uncolored, you'll see how life moves way too fast.

Chorus
Prayer's a nice concept, a handy little tool,
But if you don't really mean it, who the hell are you tryin' to fool?
You need to be walkin' it, and not just talkin' it.
You need to be walkin' it, and not just talkin' it.

Verse
What you have is only half the truth, what you need is the whole,
What you want is material wealth, what you need is self-control.
After all the things that you've been told, and what everybody's said,
Can't you see it's not enough to have it all, even Elvis Presley's dead, dead, dead.

Chorus

Don?t be talkin' it?

Bridge
You love the ones who don't love you and you hate the ones who do.
Which of them do you amuse and which of them will be there to help you make it through?
After all is said and done, which ones respect you enough to tell you the truth?...the truth?

You need to be walkin' it, and not just talkin' it.
You need to be walkin' it, and not just talkin' it.
(repeat into fade out)
