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"

'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 fussed
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 wanna drink before the war?"
"Anybody wanna drink before the war?"
"Anybody wanna drink before the war?"
