World Wide Suicide

And I felt the earth on a Monday
it moved beneath my feet
in the form of a morning paper
laid out for me to see

saw his face in a corner picture
I recognized the name
could not stop staring at the face
I’d never see again

It’s a shame to awake in a world of pain
what does it mean when oil has taken over?
it’s the same everyday, I heard Monday
what can be saved and who will be left to hold her

The whole world will obey
It’s a world wide suicide
The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide

the medal’s on a wooden mantle
next to a handsome face
that the President took for granted
writing checks that others pay

and in all the madness
thought becomes numb and naive
so much to talk about and
nothing for’us to say

It’s the same every day, they want brave
yeah they want brave while the devil’s on their shoulder
laying claim to the take of soldier’s fate
well i’m not quitting
the truth’s already out there

The whole world, we’re no one
It’s a world wide suicide
The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide

look in the eyes of the fallen,
you’ve got to know there’s another ..another..another..another…another …WAY!…

It’s a shame to awake in a world of pain
what does it mean when the war has taken over?
it’s the same everyday, i’m brave, i’m brave
tell you they’re free, while the devil’s on his shoulder

The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide
The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide
The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide
The whole world, we’re no more
It’s a world wide suicide!…

Those lyrics are probably about 85% correct.
