The Beautiful Occupation Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't stand it, don't feel it
Something's telling me
I don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the bag
Stick it in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
Beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

I'm too cynical
I'm just sitting here
I'm just wasting my time
Half a million civilians gonna die today
But look the wrong way

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick it in the bag
Stick it in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
Beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

Don't just stand there watching it happening
I can't feel it, don't need this
Something telling me
I don't wanna go out this way
But have a nice day

Then read it in the headlines
Watch it on the TV
Put it in the background
Stick in the bag
Stick in the bag

For the beautiful occupation
Beautiful occupation
Don't need an invitation
To drop in upon a nation

For the beautiful occupation
Beautiful occupation
So much for an intervention
Don't call the United Nations
