lyrics

Oh, All day long
I think about the ways that I have been
Brought up to be

By my parents by my friends,
By that sweeping camera lens,
By my own will and by societies

Now I know that there are different homes
And a billion types of different folks
And that for each one there's a different way to be

Oh, still I can't escape the feeling that, oh
Despite us having different maps
That the people need a community

(Chorus):
But I've been watching that fall away
I've been watching that fall and we're still breathing
But we'll go belly-up!

I've been watching that fall away
I've been watching that fall and we're still breathing
but we'll go belly-up!

[Bah-Dah Dah Bah Bah-Dah 3x… Woah ohhh]

Well, if there is one thing that's been known to wedge
us back between the walls of hedge
in our backyards in the scorching summer scene,

Oh, it's the way we treat our brothers' need
as an impedance, to what we perceive
as necessity, but it ain't that, it's greed.

(Chorus)

Now it's a simple fact that we react
from our egos long before our tact
because selfish sells,
you're just doing what you've seen!

but in that waving flag that all you hold
there are millions and millions of little holes
where the rest of the human race is meant to be…
