Some of us are born, and then some of us are born again
Some of us are scared to death, and some just don't believe in it
Something's always wrong; there's a line, an idea I can't get behind
No one knows what's right; some try... some just try to find a king
They say, "Who will save us now?
It's our life, but we don't want to live it; we want to be told how
By something or someone who's better than us, who we know we can trust
Who will always protect us, but keep us scared to death; so we never ask questions
Will dictate the consequences of our actions and give us peace of mind about our miserable lives
Can find it content all we want is a place we can hide
We can hide."
And so we've always fought our wars for what we're told we're dying for
Land and love and God and wealth, but men in charge protect themselves
You can rest assured it's the young and the poor who fought all our wars
Led to death by men who they chose and hoped would protect them
And who will save us now?
It's our life, but we don't want to live it, and all you'll get is down
'Cause the people you elect to protect your best interests will just protect themselves
And all their investments, and even the few with the best of intentions will just push their views
But they think it's right for you and everyone else who can't think for yourself
'Cause you've chosen to let someone else do it for you
So we're left to drift between our waking life and all our dreams
Reality is relative, and that's all the advice I'll give
Life and death are hard: they're such strange and complicated issues
So listen, listen well for insight, but no one knows what's right for you
Who will save us now?
It's a wrong and irrelevant question 'cause we'll figure it out with the people who love us
Who call us their brothers, through lessons we've learned from our fathers and mothers
Not looking for someone to find our solutions, to fight all our battles or show us what truth is
But working hard to find our own peace of mind
Living and learning till we know what's right for our lives
Who Will Save Us Now Lyrics
