Toy soldiers made of tin
painted red and gold

When you're on the march,
you be stiff as starch,
you're very, very, bold.

Spent your nights and days
getting laid
drinking hip held brandy

Bet you never thought
the things that you were taught
would've come in handy.

Were they childhood dreams
and silver screens
that dulled your mind?

Is that what led you to believe
you could lift the moon out of the sky?

And what can we do,
but deny,
that trouble sticks to human kind.

Families and histories
are scattering like black-eyed peas...

Release us please.

From this strong hold.

Release us for the cinder cannot hold.

That's why we are just
Winging it just like this for now...
Just by
Singing it just like this somehow...
I know (I know)
That the tables will turn somehow...

Meanwhile we're winging it by singing it
just for the hell of it
We'll be doing it
just like this.

We are de-condemned
We carry beacons of spiritual high learning
We spread the good news
in shiny shoes
to increase our earning.

I tip my hat to you,
respect is due,
you brave men and women,
to abandon the idea
after all these years
that there might be a heaven.

The Owl and the moon discussed
a ... brave enough to shine
like Obediah,
through the fire,
to sacrifice to be refined.

And what, what, what are we gonna do,
but deny,
that trouble sticks to human kind..

Families like bees and histories
are scattering like black-eyed peas...

Release me please (scattering like black-eyed peas).

From this strong hold.

Release us please
for the cinder can not hold..

That's why we are just
Winging it just like this for now...
Just by
Singing it just like this somehow...
I know (I know)
That the tables will turn somehow...

Meanwhile we're winging it by singing it
just for the hell of it
We'll be doing it
just like this.


Meanwhile we're winging it by singing it
just for the hell of it
We'll be doing it
just like this.


Meanwhile we're winging it by singing it
just for the hell of it
We'll be doing it
just like this.


Meanwhile we're winging it by singing it
just for the hell of it
We'll be doing it
just like that.
