Lyrics

All this time has whittled away, so many days in one
Back and forth, the leaders away, backing it up with guns
Superpowers flex their wings, hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed, while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
When will the truth come into season?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
I have a feeling it'll be a long time

All they want is they can defend, before their time is up
Make the same mistakes all again, heard it all before, yeah
Superpowers flex their wings, hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed, while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
When will the truth come into season?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
I have a feeling it'll be a long time

Well, if they tried, maybe they'd see
It'd do a little good to let the world be free
Handshake and a smile, gets you on through
Then turn it all around with a suicide move
But, you know it's not fooling anyone, but me
You gotta make yourself see what you wanna see
But, you know it's not fooling anyone, but me
You gotta make yourself see what you wanna see, oh yeah

I say, yeah Superpowers flex their wings, hold the world on puppet strings
Egos will feed, while citizens bleed
That's always the way it goes

When will the world listen to reason?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
When will the truth come into season?
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
I have a feeling it'll be a long time
Oh yeah yeah yeah...
