lyrics

They say to move along,
but it’s hard to get along
when something’s not right
with my air.

They say to move along,
but it’s hard to get along
with what’s going on
over there.

And maybe the boy
with the lead in his side
needs attention, for without it
he’ll surely die.

Ignorance is bliss
and it’s something we’ll miss
if we choose to open up
both of our eyes.

So I says “You been hit,
how hard’s it hurt?”
And he says, “Not as bad
as the two in my back.”

Says “I find it pretty hard to move
with this subjection around my neck.”

And maybe the boy
with the lead in his side
would like to get a chance
to tell his side

’cause ignorance is bliss
and it’s something we’ll miss
should we choose to open up
both of our eyes.

You know, I’m having these symptoms, too,
is there really nothing any of us can do?

So I says “You been hit,
how hard’s it hurt?”
And he says, “Not as bad
as the one in my lung.”

Says “I find it pretty hard to speak
with this compulsion tipping off my tongue.”

You know, I’m having these symptoms, too,
is there really nothing any of us can do?
