Dying To Be Heard


YES YOU IN THE BLUE 2
 
It's happening all over it never really stopped
It's now been more than fifty years
Since the bombs were dropped
And we get told ear candy to make us go away
Inside our shacks we turn our backs
And forget more everyday

Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
 
Do your patriotic duty
Your Uncle Sam is owed
Don't ask questions here's your gun
Start marching down the road
We've got plenty here for everyone
Depending on your age
We know that' you'll be happy making the minimum wage
We're working on the problems
But the budget's been cut down
There's better education now in every part of town
There never was a danger here
The radiation's safe
Go back about your business boy
Don't you loose that faith

Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
 
We interrupt this program for a message from the man
Everything is happening according to the plan
The fires raging everywhere are all under control
Despite extensive casualties were closer to our goal
To me there's nothing casual about bodies in the street
Starving children don't need foreign policy to eat
Only if there's profit in it will we intervene
But don't expect to hear that when they tell you what you mean

Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
 
You won't read it in the papers
You won't here it on the news
But you'll see it in the faces that have nothing left to lose
When the children ask you why they cannot go outside
They already know the reason
They're just wondering why you lie

Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
Saying something doesn't make it true
Wake up time
Yes you in the blue
 
So au revoir my honey
Aloha little doll
I'm following a shadow that's climbing up the wall
Communication's broken
The cats have run away
I hadn't planned on leaving
But you knew I wouldn't stay

Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time yes you in the blue
Saying something doesn't make it true
It's wake up time
Yes you in the blue
