 Watch: New Singing Lesson Videos Can Make Anyone A Great Singer

Past my window, out in the street
Life makes short work of all I see
Men take the change from beggars
Tight bound in sheets
Red and blue, the useless sirens scream

The song of masses, passing outside
All inciting the fifth of July
When guns for hire open fire, blind against the dawn
When the knights in iron took the pawn
You and I, out into the night
Held within the line that they've drawn

As I went they're all beside us in silence
As if unaffected amid the violence
Oh, are we also tamed?
I was in a river, as if in water
Wife, a son, a son, a son, and a daughter
Oh, are we also tamed?

I walked home, no words to say
Cassius, one month gone on his way
And who will lead us and who remains to die?
By a thread, drop my head to cry

As I went they're all beside us in silence
As if unaffected amid the violence
Ooh, are we also tamed?
I was in a river, as if in water
Wife, a son, a son, a son, and a daughter
Ooh, are we also tamed?

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
