Don't bring me bad news, no bad news
I don't need none of your bad news today
You're a sad little boy, anyone can see it
Just a sad little boy
That's why you're carrying on that way

Why don't you burn it all down?
Burn your own house down
Burn your own house down
Try to cure your own disease

And leave the rest of us
There's a lot of us, leave the rest of us
Who want to live in peace, to live in peace

I'm gonna find me a man, love him so well
Love him so strong, love him so slow
We're gonna go way beyond the walls of this fortress

And we won't be afraid, we won't be afraid
And though the darkness may come our way
We won't be afraid to be alive anymore

And we'll grow kindness in our hearts
For all the strangers among us
'Til there are no strangers anymore

Don't bring me bad news, no bad news
I don't need none of your bad news today
You can't have my fear, I've got nothing to lose
Can't have my fear
I'm not getting out of here alive anyway

And I don't need none of these things
I don't need none of these things I've been handed
The bird of peace is flying over, she's flying over
And coming in for a landing
