Are you wonderin' why no one talks anymore
And all you hear is the cry for war
Are you wonderin' if there are people who
Hurt inside the same as you

There are gray-faced men always tellin' me
That things ain't like they used to be
You kids have got no self respect
Wake up old man to your neglect

It's dog eat dog, it's hand to mouth
It's east and west, it's north and south
Just like you drummed it into me
Things ain't like they used to be

I'll tell you why I can't afford
To hang my hopes upon your word
And when I'm done I'll join the queue
Take my chance, no thanks to you

It's in or out, it's stop and go
It isn't what, it's who you know
I've heard you now can you hear me?
Things ain't like they used to be

Are you wonderin' why no one talks anymore
And all you hear is the cry for war
Are you wonderin' if there are people who
Hurt inside the same as you

Ancient rules for ancient men
But this is now and that was then
Don't lay your heavy hand on me
And sink me in your poison sea

It's us and them, it's me and you
It's guessing games, it's what to do
Exactly like you said to me
Things ain't like they used to be

Are you wonderin' why no one talks anymore
And all you hear is the cry for war
Are you wonderin' if there are people who
Hurt inside the same as you

Are you wonderin' why, no one talks anymore
And all you hear is the cry of war
Are you wonderin' if there are people who

Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you

Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you
Hurt inside the same as you
