Over and Over and Over

Over and over and over

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

We are busy killing ourselves

 

We don’t know how to change

We’re drowning in a very deep gulf of waste

Everything is wrong but seems so right

Everything right seems so strange

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

Why we only know wars

 

We’re sending our youth to endless wars

Our leaders are numb to any reasonable peace

We own more guns than Bibles

We have more guns than people

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

Why we need our automatic guns

 

The killing goes on in nightclubs

The killing goes on in shopping malls

The killing goes on is schools

The killing goes on in churches

And synagogues

And mosques

And temples

The killing grounds are in our front yards

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

Our world is a good killing ground for our future

 

The ice caps are melting to drown us, I guess

The cities are flooding but caring is less

Our oceans are filthy with our plastic waste

Killing the fish with no lack of haste

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

That we don’t care to change our ways

The faster we go to end our days

 

Tell me, over, and over, and over

Tell me, over and over, and over
