All this time has whittled away
Like so many days in one
Back and forth the leaders sway
Backin' it up with guns

Superpowers flex their wings
Hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
When will the truth come in to season
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time

All the want is what they can defend
Before their time is up
Make the same mistakes again
Heard it all before

Superpowers flex their wings
Hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
When will the truth come in to season
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time

Well if they tried, maybe they'd see
It'd do a little good to let the world be free
Handshake and a smile, gets you on through
Then turn it all around with a suicide move

But you know it's not foolin' anyone but me
You gotta make yourself see what you want to see
But you know it's not foolin' anyone but me
You gotta make yourself see what you want to see

I say yeah, "Superpowers flex their wings
Hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes"

When will the world listen to reason
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
When will the truth come in to season
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
I've a feelin' it'll be a long time
