You have all been misinformed.
I've been working on a different war.
It's in the air and in the alleys on the street.
A thousand casualties are marching to its feet.

And I've been working on every level,
communicating on every channel,
just trying to get a message back to you.
The words are lost and nothing ever gets through.

There's nothing worse than a one-way dream
on a foundation that you cannot see.
Make sure the execution's on the right track.
You've got to kill yourself to get yourself back.
Make sure you stand up straight to stab me in the back.

And I've been working on every level,
communicating on every channel,
just trying to get a message back to you.
The words are lost and nothing ever gets through.
Words are lost and nothing ever gets through.

You have all been casually mentioned
in a song about good intentions.
The mountains tremble and the sky is crying.
It knows you're living and it knows you're dying.
It knows who's selling, and it knows who's buying.

Your life is flowing from an underground stream.
You are invisible; at least that's how it seems.
This inclination that's been stirring in my head--
I'm listening to words I've never said.
We can't continue living like we're dead.

And I've been working on every level,
communicating on every channel,
just trying to get a message back to you.
The words are lost and nothing ever gets through.

And I've been working on every level,
communicating on every channel,
just trying to get a message back to you.
The words are lost and nothing ever gets through.
Words are lost and nothing ever gets through.
