Spastic captive
what makes you think you're not to blame?
Blue flares bear witness
It's time you find yourself a new claim to fame.

Fairweather feather
Our time's run out
We won't feel better
when the winds of change have changed to lazy clouds

Red flags at half-mast
Fresh spores to kill
Dream house in splinters
Pink pills will help us to sleep and sit still

Surefooted captain
Your jokes are first-rate
The press pool ripples with laughter
As robot planes shoot flames and take lives away

Filthy window
Go on, pretend that you can see
Guilty rainbow
We'll never be the way we used to be…

If you're somebody nobody wants to be around
Where do you go at night?
When you don't want to be alone anymore?
When you don't want to be alone anymore

And if you're someone who wants to be alone
What do you when you're miles away from home
Where do you go when there are people everywhere you go
What do you say to someone you'll never know?

If you're someone who cares a lot about the problems of the world
What do you say to the other boys & girls?
Do you try to play it cool?
Or do you dare ask if they care along with you?

If you shake real fast
It might float to the top
You might see it through the glass
But if you stop shaking it will surely drop
