[Verse 1]
Zion doesn’t love you
But you love everything
America don’t love you
In spite of everything
[Pre-Chorus]
There’s the glow of your face
Of this broken machine
That I’ve made some mistake
Ya Hey (x3)
[Chorus]
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
You won’t even say your name
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey

Oh, the motherland don’t love you
So why love anything?
The faithless they don’t love you
And that’s not gonna change
[Pre-Chorus]
All the paranoid styles
Of a secret career
That you’ve seen the mistake
Ya Hey (x3)
[Chorus]
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
You won’t even say your name
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey

Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
My soul swooned, as I faintly heard the sound
Into “19th Nervous Breakdown”
[Chorus]
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
(Ya hey x2, Ut Deo, ya hey x2)
You won’t even say your name
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey

Through the fire and through the flames
Only “I am that I am”
(Ya Hey x2)
Ut Deo, Deo
