People polishing guns
They've got nothing better to do
Though they think they're having fun
They're just living to die, if they but knew
Now, now

All day long they sit at home
Waiting for the milk to come
Watch them turn into stone
Thinking 'bout the things they might have done,
Now, now

You missed the point, you missed the point
You really missed the point

Everybody's got to know
Love's the reason we're here
No matter which way you go
Love's gonna meet you there

Killing time, killing time
Killing time, killing time

You missed the point, you really missed the point
Made me cry, I wonder why, why
You missed the point, you missed the point
You really missed the point
