lyrics

we started out in mayberry
just to wind up reading pravda
and we cannot seem to trace the link between the two
in a love affair with maybelline
and machines that live on gasoline
and every great or foolish thing
that famous people do

could it be we’ve lost ourselves
could it be we’re only shells
of everything
we ever dreamed we’d be
could our means become our end
when there’s nothing left to spend
on everything
we were never meant to be

oh my god, it’s gone too far
somebody just killed the color guard
and painted all them white stripes red and blue
there ain’t room for the truth no more
look left and right, you’ll find one door
just one road, and it leads to war
what’s a man of peace to do

could it be we’ve lost ourselves
could it be we’re only shells
of everything
we ever dreamed we’d be
could our means become our end
when there’s nothing left to spend
on everything
we were never meant to be

i’m in love with all that radiates
of grace, and all that hesitates
when called upon to live in hate
of my fellow human being
cause all men live in cages
whether iron bars or wages
but the wisdom of the ages
is that freedom lives within

could it be we’ve lost ourselves
could it be we’re only shells
of everything
we ever dreamed we’d be
could our means become our end
when there’s nothing left to spend
on everything
we were never meant to be

everything we were never meant to be
