lyrics

It seems clear to me
How can we be free
When there's dying in the sea
Because of you and me

We can turn away
Like night turns into day
We just change the games we play
Doesn't matter what we say

Should we understand?
Whay we're standing in this land
With all the myths held in our hands
And the scrapped forgotten plans

Fear of the unknown
It's not like we condone
But strange voices in our homes
Just too close to the bone

Should we understand?
Whay we're standing in this land
With all the myths held in our hands
And the scrapped forgotten plans

I saw it on my TV
But its not in my life
We can turn it over
And still sleep well tonight

Should we understand?
Whay we're standing in this land
With all the myths held in our hands
And the scrapped forgotten plans

It seems clear to me
How can we be free
When there's dying in the sea
Because of you and me
