Violence for violence, time after time
Putting those things right out of your mind
Thinking this could never happen to you
Just to those folks on the evening news

Chorus: It's no big deal they say
It's just the kind of madness you get used to
It's a truth you always have known
It's tough as sinew and bones
And you don't get used to it

Violence for violence, it just comes around
It cries in the night with a desperate sound
But where do you run when fear stalks your dreams
How do you measure the weight of those things

Chorus: It's no big deal they say
It's just the kind of madness you get used to
It's a truth you always have known
It's tough as sinew and bones
And you don't get used to it

The strong will bet by, cause they always do
The small and the helpless are counting on you
Doesn't anybody notice, doesn't anybody care
Doesn't anybody ever give a dam out there

So up on the hill they fight like little children
Arguing over who gets the crumbs
Plotting and planning, cheating and scamming
While the soul of a country
Slowly gets numb

It's no big deal they say
It's just eh kind of madness you get used to
