Ozone disappearing in the sky
Bud man asking us why ask why
If I could find my magazine this bug would die
I complain

China boy standing up to a tank
Southern boy living in the house of yanks
If I can't seem to get my motorbike to crank
I complain

Complain so much easier

Small kid begging for a crumb of bread
Next kid bloated lying nearly dead
I wonder what to take for my aching head
I complain

Lots of people crying for a little rain
Whole nation learning how to live with pain
I don't know how I'm gonna clean this little stain
I complain

Complain so much easier

Black man singing Mississippi blues
Africa starves a little baby drools
I'm trying to figure out all the basketball rules
I complain

Mr. Rush Limbaugh giving me the facts
Treetops falling and the newsman yaks
I'm thinking about Carter
And how I'm gonna be taxed, hey

Complain so much easier

    General CommentOne of the more straight-forward songs this band has. It seems to me that it's about how little your problems are in comparison to the bigger picture. Probably rather obvious.

    General CommentYes, the lyrics to this song are obvious. I enjoy King's X, and this is a very catchy and upbeat song for them. I like the guitar riffs particularly. This song does kind of get me happier when I'm feeling upset about something stupid though; I'll be honest about that.

    King's X is seen as a Christian band to a lot of people, and they aren't. They're Christians to an extent, but if Doug Pinnick is gay then they're obviously not the Bible-beating type or anything. You'll have to find articles or interviews yourself, but the band's stance on ethic and morals is commonly understood.

    General CommentI read somewhere that Pinnick has abandoned Christianity.

    General Commenteach member of the band has publicly abandoned organized religion... which is not the same as "abandoned Christianity". You can find recent interviews that clearly indicate that each band member is still quite dedicated to their own personal belief in God.... but I doubt any one of them ever sets foot in a church anymore.
