lyrics

What's wrong with this world?
I'm so sick of hearing congratulations
For wealth and beauty and sport
When you leave the tabloid on the table
I won't give it so much as a glance

This is our world, not yours
Your walls are artificial but your insecurity is real

Who's who in this world?
You have it all, the power and the resources
But we're not really wanting either
We don't need your propaganda
To tell us that we're in control

And that is why I feel fine
In spite of everything that you did
All your destruction and horror, well
We may have both made mistakes, but I can change
And so it is that peace still has a chance

What's good in this world
Is just the very basics now, but that is all that we need
Some green and blue in a mass of chaos
And a feeling that'll never be distilled into a name
And I don't think you'll ever feel it
And that is the most profound shame
