Welcome To My Revolution

  There's too much music, too much light
  These endless broadcasts into the night
  Petty seizures of money and drugs
  By some official or unauthorized thugs
  Now it's gone, the whole world's gone
  There's the army at the front door, guerrillas in back

  Why do I always have to take up sides
  I had no plans to be conscripted today
  I am no use to them anyway
  So what the hell's going on
  When they took my bed for the good of the state
  I had to rest my head and took to levitation
  Welcome to my revolution

  Every morning they confer with the press
  Just to point a few fingers
  Fix the blame for this mess
  The spokesmen waffle and the jerk-offs complain
  In a stream of rhetoric
  Piss themselves down the drain
  Then it's time to go home
  Time to go home
  What will they say when it's gone
  The whole world's gone
  So they call a cease fire to bury the dead
  And just delay it for an hour or so
  Loose talk of cowards and leaders that lied
  What does it matter once we're vaporized
  Say what the hell's going on
  Then it got so bad I couldn't breathe the air
  So I became my own church and begged for sanctuary
  Welcome to my revolution

  This is the dream that I have every night
  I wake up screaming to the left and the right
  Is this my vision of the end of the world
  The faces looked smoldered, the edges are curled
  Tell me what is the reason we can't look at ourselves
  And realize everybody creates his own hell
  And if we put it together to make them all real
  And then forget how to think, forget how to feel
  Until it's gone, the whole world's gone
  Are we damned if we do and damned if we don't
  Could we be suckered into thinking that
  Or get too greedy, afraid of the loss
  And wind up fighting for a worthless cause
  What if we died and had to come back
  How may times would we have to go 'round
  What if tomorrow was the end of the line
  Don't want to feel like I wasted my time
  So what the hell's going on
  When the noise gets so dense
  	you can't hear yourself think
  We got the spirit world on a telephone link
  So welcome to my revolution
