Well we're dropping our bombs
In the southern hemisphere
And people are starving
That live right here
And they're tearing down walls
In the name of peace
And they're killing each other
In the middle east

But love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness

They raise the price of oil
And they censor our mouths
If you are a young couple today
Forget buying a house
And we wage our wars
In the neighborhoods
We kill the young to feed the old
And men that ain't no good

Yeah, but love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness

So if you sell arms
Or if you run dope
You got respect
And you got hope
But the rest of us die
On your battle fields
With wounds that fester and bleed
But never heal

Yeah love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness

And love and happiness
Yeah love and happiness
Have forgotten our names
And there's no value left
In love and happiness
