Drink Before the War
Well, you tell us that we're wrong And you tell us not to sing our song Nothing we can say will make you see You got a heart of stone You can never feel You say "oh I'm not afraid - it can't happen to me I've lived my life as a good man Oh, no you're out of your mind It won't happen to me â??Cause I've carried my weight And I've been a strong man" Listen to the man in the liquor store Yelling "anybody want a drink before the war?" And your parents paid you through You got a nice big car Nothing bothers you Somebody cut out your eyes You refuse to see Somebody cut out your heart You refuse to feel And you live in a shell You create your own hell You live in the past And talk about war And you dig your own grave yeah But it's a life you can save So stop getting fast It's not gonna happen And you'll cry But you'll never fall No, no, no You're building a wall Gotta break it down Start again No, no, no It won't happen to us We've lived our lives Basically we've been good men So stop talking of war Cause you know we've heard it all before Why don't you go out there And do something useful Oh listen to the man in the liquor store He yelling "anybody want to drink before the war?" "Anybody want to drink before the war?" "Anybody want to drink before the war?"
