if you watch the news on t.v.
it's enough to make you sick.
think we need a new solution
think we better find it quick
'cause we're in acceleration
and there ain't much time to think
trigger fingers are gettin' itchy now
oh, they've got us on the brink.
i refuse to hate the russians
and I ain't scared of the chinese
'cause they're people just like we are
and they got their families
they don't want their young men dying
for a piece of foreign ground
and they're tired of taking orders
and being pushed around
being pushed around
but it's gonna happen soon
from here to every distant shore
when people everywhere refuse
to take it anymore
this world is shrinking day by day
the boundaries are obsolete
still every man breaks his back to pay
and make some arsenal complete
how can we build more weapons
knowing what we'll use them for?
how can family men assemble
the machinery of war?
you gotta wonder.
