09. Unnoticed

Beautiful Lumps of Coal
by Plumb



 

Did you ever hear of Carrie
Mother of six
Angel to a thousand
You may have never seen her
But her actions spoke much louder

She changed this place
She changed this place

Did you ever meet a man named Joe
Father to eight
Giver to plenty more
He'd give you his very last dollar
When what he needed cost two

He changed this place
Without you knowing his face

We're so selfish
Self seeking
We're so desperate to be number one
So unworthy
Of what's given
What are we doing here

Have you ever played the martyr
Only for the reason of a prize
Can we ever give up trying
To be something in another's eyes
And change this place
We can change this place

We're so selfish
Self seeking
We're so desperate to be number one
So unworthy
Of what's given
What are we doing here

Unnoticed
Unnoticed
Unnoticed
Unnoticed

We're so selfish
Self seeking
We're so desperate to be number one
So unworthy
Of what's given
What are we doing here

We're so selfish
Self seeking
We're so desperate to be number one
So unworthy
Of what's given
What are we doing here



Behind the Song:
“Carrie, in the first verse, was my grandmother on my dad’s side, and Joe, in the second verse, was my mother’s father. They lived similar lives: She was the most unselfish woman I’ve ever known. She never drew attention to herself for all the sacrifices she made, but God knows what she did for so many people. And Joe, like I said in the lyrics, would give you his very last dollar when what he needed cost two. He doesn’t have a Pulitzer Prize for unselfishness, but the mark he made, even in just a few lives, means more to me than any prize. Joe and Carrie were so unselfish, and so much goodness came out of that. And when I sing ‘Have you ever played the martyr only for the reason of a prize?’ in the song, I’m singing it to my friend from the song “Walk Away.” She always played the martyr, just to get attention. So much negativity comes out of selfishness, yet people still insist on being that way… This song is for them too.” – Tiffany Arbuckle Lee (Plumb)
