Half of your heart
Is over in Allston town
The other half of your heart
Is fighting in Iraq
Half of it's hard
But the other is easy if you know
At least half of your heart
Well it won't die slow

Tt goes on and on (5X)

Half of our art
Is taking up city real estate
The other half of our art
Is sounding off about peace
You have to be guarded
About the battles that you choose
But you can't tell me you've never wanted to lose

It goes on and on (5X)

So you can take it out on folks
Who disagree with what he's doing
Or you can take it out on anyone you want
But you're no better than them
And used to know better than them
And you're no better than them
But that's alright I guess

So take it to heart
If someone's been trying to change your mind
But don't take it too hard
If it sounds unkind
Be the problem in hell
Or be the black tie
Dragging heaven down
And then at least half of your heart will be safe and sound

It goes on and on (12X)

Now you're no better than them
And used to know better than them
And right and wrong are made out of thread
And they can be ripped bent or broken
