At least privately in takes
here's another one
And I'd say "it would be okay"
But that's a lie, man
I mean, hey, we're all dying.. young!
It's not a wish although it seems more like a terrifying dream
And I'm serious!
It's either whiskey, or a bong, or a car crash, or a bomb
I'm serious!!
It's the only thing I think
When I wake up in my bed
And my stomach churns, as these pages turn
Is the world burning
Or is it only.. in my head?

On a screen on a tv
On a scene in front of me
With all the white noise and the static
And the stifling the screams
This is war, this is death, this is real, you better bet
On the winning side, the winning side,
The winning side, the winning side

And I'm sitting in a train
Over in Brooklyn in the rain
All by myself
When the thought occurs to me..
That all these people wanna be
Just some where.. else
Like every day is just lost
In an argument with your boss over a coffee break
Well the same is true for me, I mean, one more indignity
And I'm going to.. break
Because the only thing I think
When he walks out on the screen
He says, the sky falls
And you're duty calls
Man, it takes some balls to be
So obscene...

On a screen on a tv
On a scene in front of me
With all the white noise and the static
And the stifling the screams
This is war, this in death. this is real you better bet
On the winning side, the winning side
The winning side, the winning side
The right side, the right side
Oh they shipped you off
And your parents cried
It all falls away so quietly
When you wake up to reality..

What reality?
What's reality? What's reality?? What's reality??
IT'S A FUCKING BULLET!!

I got a brother in Iraq
I got no way to get him back
Like all those people in the sands,
Buried in Afghanastan
I got a child in a crib
I got a father in a bib
I got no pills
I got no skills
I got no idea what I did
I just wonder every second
Every minute that passes by
Are we living?
Are we dreaming?
Are we winning?
Will we die
In a cloud of dust
In a mushroom burst
In a series of degradations first?
Or all alone in a hospital bed?
Wondering what we might of done instead?

With a lifetime..
A lifetime, a lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime, a lifetime
Well we paid our dues
And we did our time
But can you tell me,
Exactly, what was our crime?
We're not standing still
For this firing line
While you decide
Who lives, who dies?
I hope you choke..
On. All. Your. Lies.
