How Many Walls

How many walls can you put up?

How many guns 'til you feel safe?

How many times can we watch this story

Over and over and over again?

And how many years have we wasted

Counting the lies that we've been fed?

For something to change we have waited

Over and over and over again

 

I'm entertained by the monkey on your back

But can we still call it a joke if no one laughs?

It's either going up in smoke around me or according to plan

A bittersweet disaster mounting over and over again

 

How many walls can you put up?

How many guns 'til you feel safe?

How many times can we watch this story

Over and over and over again?

How many years have we wasted

Counting the lies that we've been fed?

For something to change we have waited

Over and over and over again

 

Chasing our own tail, the more we learn the less we know

As the monsters lost in history are now making their return

As we bow down, roll out the carpet red as rose

We should have known

 

How many walls can you put up?

How many guns 'til you feel safe?

How many times can we watch this story
