He's the sum of the earth
And the moon and the stars
Or so he's chose to believe
He's the break of dawn
On the fields of Mars,
Like a missle gathering speed
And all the words that he says
Are the salt of the earth
But is that really what we wanna hear?
There's a crack in the sky
That cannot be fixed
And they say that the end is near

Well let me tell you that
This one
Ain't gonna help you sleep at night
And your loved ones
Slip through your fingers when you hold onto them too tight
Well let me tell you
It ain't always right to be right
Well man
You've gotta let go
Tonight

Straight to the concrete with your mouth on the curb
You're murdering your dreams
And it's nice to think everything's black and white
But it's greyer than it seems
And you're tearing down the walls that separate us
From the dead men and the beasts
We're killing all our friends with a shot in the dark
Or for a shot at world peace

Well let me tell you that
This one
Ain't gonna help you sleep at night
And your loved ones
Slip through your fingers when you hold onto them too tight
Well let me tell you
It ain't always right to be right
Well man
You've gotta let go
Cause this one
Ain't gonna help you sleep at night
And your loved ones
Slip through your fingers when you hold onto them too tight
Well let me tell you
It ain't always right to be right
Well man
You've gotta let go
Tonight

    General CommentHmmm...guess I skipped out on the second verse here...

    Straight to the concrete with a mouth on the curb
    You're murdering your dreams
    And it's nice to think everything's black and white
    But it's greyer than it seems
    And you're tearing down the walls that separate us
    From the dead men and the beasts
    We're killing all our friends with a shot in the dark
    For a shot at world peace

    Anywho, this song is an anthem of the fallacies of man, numerous as they are.
    In laymen's terms, we suck big time.
    Peace.
