Something beautiful happened in the church house
But it didn't have to do with God!
Something beautiful happened in the court house
But it didn't have to do with the law!
Something beautiful happened in the theater
But it didn't have to do with the play!
And all this beautiful is smuggled like a secret
And it doesn't have to be that way
'Cos something beautiful gets shot down everyday
(No!)
And nothing so obscene could ever dream to take it's place

They keep us splashing in the wet work, wet work!
So they can cash in on the network, network!
"Let's get connected while the text is corrected."
Love, it doesn't have to be that way

And then my brother, he got shot up in the green house
He was researching the cure
And my sister, she got locked up in the jail house
But she didn't even know what for
And then my cousin, he got strung up outside the court house
He was challenging the case
Something beautiful will always surround us
But it's just to easy to erase
Something beautiful gets shot down in every place

And something beautiful happened at the border
(Oh!)
And something beautiful happened on the corner
(Oh!)
Now nothing beautiful is happening anyway

They keep us splashing in the wet work, wet work!
So they can cash in on the network, network!
"Soft opposition if you play your position."
Love, it doesn't have to be that way

One thousand thoughts so peaceful
Vasnished in a din
Of ryhthms from a helicopter
Turn me up, don't turn me in

The sound was deafening, it tore into the bedroom
And it didn't have to do with God
We loved each other like a bomb loves a body
And it didn't have to do with the law
I forgot the sheets, the heat, the gentle weaponry
I won't forget the look on your face
The loudest bomb is quieter than an eyelash
Against the fabric of your pillowcase
