Back to Advertising Space lyrics

Advertising Space

There's no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart when it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you

Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Say something

There's no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
We're still fighting
Over everything you left

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our prophets go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

Through your eyes the world was burning
"Please be gentle, I'm still learning"
You seemed to say as you kept turning up

They poisoned you with compromise
But at what point did you realize
Everybody loves your life but you?

A special agent for the man
Through Watergate and Vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Do you think the C.I.A. did?

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our prophets go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our prophets go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space

I've seen your daughter man
She's cute
I was scared but I wanted to
Boy, she looks a lot like you
