Lyrics

THAT’S NOT THE WAY THAT IT SHOULD BE

Every now and then I get a little bit angry
with your children.
It makes me want to cry and then it make me want to be the one
who teaches them

But they just stand there looking
Like they’re at a zoo

CHORUS
Between you and me
That’s not the way that it should be

People feel guilty when they see the dead walking
through the city.
Pull a dollar from their pockets for a little tin cup
to make them go away

Well no one here’s applauding
his act of mercy.

CHORUS

Birds of prey are diving on the field mice are running
from the war machines
Stay long enough to get a laugh
and they’re on their way again

No one stops to wonder
Where it all ends

BRIDGE
The homeless and poor are glad to go to war
to fight for the right to be put down even more
the drugs that you buy cost to much to get us high
And the kids across the nation fight to get an education
