Hmm hmm
Aaah
Na na na na na na
Ah

I look at the sky to, where my future's lyin'
And I almost start to cry
Blinded by the sun, I'm tryin' to hold onto
The very last of precious time

Then I start to thinkin' what a mess we're makin'
(Ooa, ooa)
And it won't get better by an' by
(Ooa, ooo)
Well we can paint it up and, make it pretty but
We cannot overstep the line

(Hmm no no)
We cannot overstep
(Hmm no no)
We cannot overstep the
We cannot overstep the line

So many babies arms with
Huh nothin' to hold onto
But just a precious flake of life, ooh
You think you care about them
They think you care about them
But think it's only wastin' time

Oh, if we really want to, say the things we want to
(Ooa, ooa)
It takes a bigger man to try, oh ho
(Ooa, ooo)
Well we can paint it up and make it pretty but we
We cannot overstep the line

(Hmm no)
We cannot overstep
(No no)
We cannot overstep the
(No, no no no)
We cannot overstep the line

We cannot overstep
(No no)
We cannot overstep the
(The line)
We cannot overstep the line
(Hmm, hmm, hmm)

We cannot overstep
(Ooo, hoo hoo hoo)
We cannot overstep the
We cannot overstep the line
(Hmm mm, the line)

Well politicians sit and pretend they give a shit while
Little men go out to die, oh
The only arms they're huggin' are the ones they're runnin'
Later to be justified

Hmm
I say, "I don't mind"
(Hoo aa)
You say, "You don't mind"
(Hoo aa)
But what about the babies and what about the sunshine
(Hoo aa, hoo aa)
Well we can paint it up and make it pretty but we
We cannot overstep the line

(Hmm no no)
We cannot overstep
(Hoo hoo)
We cannot overstep the
(Never, never, never)
We cannot overstep the line
(Ho, the line)

(Ho)
We cannot overstep
(Hmm, hmm)
We cannot overstep the
(Hoo, hoo)
We cannot overstep the line

Hmm well
I say, "I don't mind"
(Hoo aa)
You say, "You don't mind"
(Hoo aa)
But what about the babies and what about the sunshine
(Hoo aa, hoo aa)
Well we can paint it up and make it pretty but
We cannot overstep the line

(Will we overstep)
We cannot overstep
(Will we overstep)
We cannot overstep the
(uh)
We cannot overstep the line

(Hoo)
We cannot overstep
(Hoo hoo)
We cannot overstep the
(No no no na na na na na na naa)
We cannot overstep the line

We cannot overstep
(Ooo, overstep)
We cannot overstep the

We cannot overstep the line

(Hmm mm mm mm mmm)
We cannot overstep
(Never, never )
We cannot overstep the
(Ooo)
We cannot overstep the line
(Cannot overstep the line, huh)
