I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't like it, I don't care Made my way past that red glare and your bellicose policy: "If you want it, try and take it", that's a cherry anthem if you're siding with me So if your blue jeans reveal the way that really you feel, why shouldn't they? It's where you're from, it's your geophilosophy You say there's plenty of gm to go around, but it looks stretched thin to me So I'm sorry for looking down and I'm sorry for feeling green but I like it, yeah I like it, yeah I like it yeah I care Deliberations by a league of nations designed to fix the tragedy all together they could not't save one tiny island and its family The all the best are found in your seaside towns shoring up your beliefs you built them up from the water, reconstructed every piece the moral dilemmas of thinking fellas melt away with the rising sea you know my body really wanted to it was my heart that just couldn't leave she's gone away, gone away to the city

The curves on the water pass straight through her hand she's unaware of the dangers in the sand This braided daughter she pulls back the time back to when this place was ek and ni As the new age dawns, cover your eyes As the new Dawn comes, just as natural Off in the distance, she hardly seems real as she stretches up into the sky This beautiful daughter with the suit split in two And the scar from the necklace that she wore As the new age dawns, cover your eyes As the new Dawn comes, just as natural Birth of a new age in the guise of industry As the ashes drift into our tea It's four in the morning, I wake you up I can't wait to see the sun rise in your eyes I swear the sun she rose in the eastern sky

Can't you see what's been going on? Can't you see what's been going on? With twice the heart anyone could foresee you showed us your penchant for war and peace it was a beautiful dawn it was awful dream when you came around Can't you see what's been going on? Can't you see what's been going on? Since dropped your hint into the middle of the sea Awakened the dragon that destroys the cities with the fists like gorillas and the heart of a whale what an inspired tale Back in Misaki, we all shied away from the science you bring Reading our novels, we found our perspective, detached as orphan kids We bear your inventions each and every day Still you deign to think that we're better off Now you see what's been going on Now you see what's been going on Here's the two three four five facts that you need just to make good decisions, to know what it feels like to hold our cities in the palm of your hand you still don't understand

In a sea of red we were alright future not too dim, future not to bright Sea spray in my face salt on my lips yeah I admit I already spent the fish when I closed my eyes cheeks warmed by the skies I must be dreaming up this freakin half-life I caught my share, I even bought a bike I had pretty two daughters, and a lovely my wife But she don't understand the scales on my hands or the rocking waves that call me away I promise I'll be home, but then I leave her alone but I'll be back to claim my half-wife We just called her Daigo at the Cross Spikes drinking heavy water getting into fights What the hell did I drink My knees are starting to sink I've never seen Aichiko look so green I stagger 'cross the deck, my eyes burn as I check for fires in this horror of a half-life

Shame shame shame! Shame shame shame! When you start with a bad name, it can only get worse When you try to do the right thing, you're bound to get burned The checks that you write to me are larger every year But when it's all said and done, they don't seem to pay the bills How can you put a price tag on a good life vaporized Better ask yourself and then ask yourself again, what is wrong and what is right Shame shame shame! Shame shame shame! God was a soldier tell you what I mean cause only a devil dog could improvise such an awful thing And Jesus was a demon you wanna know how I know cause a father and a holy spirit would never let that little boy go The checks that you write to me got more zeros every year But when it's all said and done, they don't seem to pay the bills How can you put a price tag on a good life vaporized Better check yourself better check yourself again, before someone sets you right I'm a fire truck, I'm a little red bike trailing my hose behind I love the thrill if I abhor all the killings I see They keep telling me this world doesn't need is another soldier coming home with half a brain But Reverend McKay sends his girls to the front just the same They keep telling me what this world don't need is another solo painted on after the bridge The war is the bridge! Put your hands together for the greatest oaf in the room Don't know much, don't got much to answer to, yeah right He's just trying to do the best he can do Can't we find a little peace and love in this world Why can't nobody tell the truth? We just want to live together Well don't you
