Well, you tell us that we're wrong
And you tell us not to sing our song
Nothing we can say will make you see
You got a heart of stone
You can never feel

You say "oh I'm not afraid - it can't happen to me
I've lived my life as a good man
Oh, no you're out of your mind
It won't happen to me
Cause I've carried my weight
And I've been a strong man"
But listen to the man in the liquor store
He yelling "anybody wanna drink before the war?"

And your parents paid you through
You got a nice big car
Nothing bothers you
Somebody cut out your eyes
You refuse to see
Somebody cut out your heart
You refuse to feel

And you live in a shell
You create your own hell
You live in the past and talk about war
And you dig your own grave
But it's a life you can save
So start keeping fast
It's not gonna happen
And you'll cry
But you'll never fall, no, no, no
You're building a wall
Gotta break it down
Start again

No, no, no - it won't happen to us
We've lived our lives
Basically we've been good men
So stop talking of war
Cause you know we've heard it all before
Why don't you go out there and do something useful

But listen to the man in the liquor store
He yelling "anybody wanna drink before the war?"
"anybody wanna drink before the war?"
"anybody wanna drink before the war?"
