A little silence
For the mourning of the deaths
Of a million children's innocence
And it's required
That you feel no regret
For the lives you take away

Let's take a minute
And acknowledge
The delicate flower of ignorance
And then we'll wonder
As the bodies fall
And then I suppose we'll break

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

There is a letter
And it tells me
Who the perpetrators of all the evils are
And I can tell you
In a minute
That I'm going to write a check

And if you wonder
At the wisdom
Of the men they beam back from the stars
Well, they are chosen
They will chart courses
On a ship already wrecked

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It's a mind game
That's in a mind phrame
That's like a mine field
Who cannot decide
Who to set free
From a set theme
Of laissez faire responsibility

It's a safe game
If it's home made
Even if the home is someone else's
But you never tried
And when she died
You let them call you selfless

'Cause there is evil
There are monsters everywhere
And I'm told they prey on the innocent
And you are right when you say
That it doesn't seem fair
That you should have to fight them off

There must be someone
In an office at a desk
Who can sign in some etherial cure
But you should know that
It doesn't matter
'Cause it's no longer so clear what pure
It's no longer so clear what's pure
It's no longer so clear what's pure

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It all
Comes
Down

It's a mind game
It's a mind game
