What have they done to the birds and the bees?
The cradle was robbed, the nest make believe
And they’re selling their souls for the purpose of losing it all.

What have they done to the cracks in the walls?
The world has been painted to cover it all
And everyone’s afraid to admit that they’re getting old.

Oh my Lord, I’m told

What have they done to the revolution?
They call it a war and claimed it was useless
The voice of the ages will never be heard quite the same.

What have the done to the innocent mind?
They spoiled and twisted the truth into lies
And all of the peace lovers are having to draw up their swords.

Oh my Lord, I’m torn

If I’m going crazy, then crazy is just that I’m born

What have they done to Jesus’ life?
They’re making it cruel, say it’s a lie.
They still ask for His peace cause they feel inside.

What have they done with the 2000 years?
Made history into a faithful fear
The cracks don’t expire just ‘cause the surface is dry.

Oh my Lord, I’m tired

If I’m going crazy, then crazy is just my desire
If I’m going crazy, then crazy is just what I’ve seen
If I’m going crazy, then crazy is just in between

    General CommentI think she's talking about the crumble of society and the jadedness that comes with age and getting used to the status quo of the world "cradle was dropped, nest make believe". Throughout our childhood and education we're pumped full of idealism and empowerment. We're a bunch of capitalists "selling their souls for the purpose of losing it all." The revolution, the actually belief and movement toward changing things, was destroyed by nay-saying powers that be. And no one will view revolution the same way. Protesters are often thought of as crazy, uninformed, or threatening somehow "voice of the ages will never be heard quite the same." And Katie's stepping back to watch it all as an observer, realizing that if sane is fitting into that mould, who wants to be part of it?
