Johnnie's got a gun
And it's pointed at the world
Another angry young man
Waiting to explode
He didn't choose this life
But it's what he got
On the edge of a knife
He didn't find much love
Now he sits in the doorway looking down hell
Nothing to say no one to tell
They didn't believe him he said they would pay
So many young lives wasted away

But there's got to be more to life than this
A so called reason why we exist
A better way to tell us
Why we live and die
It's got to be justice for everyone
Freedom for all under the Sun
A better way to show us
Why we live or die

Charlie's got a farm
That his father built
But he ain't growing much
But a stack of bills
It didn't rain for years
And all his cattle died
But banks don't care for tears
Or how hard you tried
You end up dying before you have lived
The future wasted the end up ahead
He took down his shotgun straight to his head
Young Charlie farmer lay dead on his bed

But there's got to be more to life than this
So called reason why we exist
Better way to tell us why we live and die
It's gotta be justice for everyone
Freedom for all under the Sun
A better way to show us why we live or die

Billy was a rock n' roll star
But it was so long ago
Everyone knew his guitar
When they heard it on the radio
He had a million dollar mansion
Up in the Hollywood hills
Used to throw the best damn parties
With hookers, alcohol and pills
But then his long hair got thinner
And his Ferrari repossessed
Irs took the mansion
So he went back to his ex-girlfriend's bed
Mtv didn't want him
They said that rock n' roll is dead
No one took his phone calls
They had all forgotten his name
Somewhere in Texas the story ends
Billy's broken without any friends
From fame and fortune to where are they now
This curtain call was his final bow

But there's gotta be more to life than this
So called reason why we exist
A better way to tell us why we live and die
It's gotta be justice for everyone
Freedom for all under the Sun
A better way to show us why we live or die
It's got to be more to life than this
So called reason why we exist
A better way to tell us why we live and die
It's got to be justice for everyone
Freedom for all under the Sun
A better way to show us why we live or die
