You're my best friend
That's the best thing that I've said
And this one's for everyone who
Can't see how anyone could lie
"I love you, yes I do," and with that there's no other way out
But without it there's no other way that
(I can feel this)
She's got that look down
And logistics
(I can feel this)
A perfect moment
A perfect cynic
(I can feel this)
She's got that look down
And logistics
(I can feel this)
A perfect moment
A perfect cynic

I was there, your Vietnam
A war you couldn't win but John Wayne can
You know that I was there
Your man on the moon
Depression ends for now
But will be back soon

'Sound System's gonna bring me back up'
Just play that song
Just play that song for me
Bad jokes that you don't understand
So you laugh too loud
As you think too deeply
I know, I can see it in your pork pies
A pretty face and a fake smile is where you hide
I know what you did
What you did

I was there, your Vietnam
A war you couldn't win but John Wayne can
You know that I was there
Your man on the moon
Depression ends for now
But will be back soon

"Because we did not authorise the invasion of Iraq.
We did not authorise the invasion of Iran.
We did not authorise the invasion of North Korea.
We did not authorise the bombing of civilians in Afghanistan.
We did not authorise permanent detainees in Guantanamo Bay.
We did not authorise the withdrawal from the Geneva Convention.
We did not authorise military tribunals suspending due process and
habeas corpus.
We did not authorise assassination squads.
We did not authorise the resurrection of COINTELPRO.
We did not authorise the repeal of the Bill of Rights.
We did not authorise the revocation of the Constitution.
We did not authorise national identity cards.
We did not authorise the eye of Big Brother to peek from cameras
throughout our cities.
We did not authorise the eye for an eye.
Nor did we ask that the blood of innocent people who perished on
September 11 be avenged with the blood of innocent villagers in
Afghanistan.
We did not authorise the administration to wage war anytime,
anywhere, anyhow it pleases.
We did not authorise war without end.
We did not authorise a permanent war economy."

I was there, your Vietnam
A war you couldn't win but John Wayne can
You know that I was there
Your man on the moon
Depression ends for now
But will be back soon
You know that I was there
Your man on the moon
