Living In F E A R

Our wide eyes
Aren't naive
They're a product of a conscious decision
The welcoming smile is the new Cool
The key left in the outside of the unlocked door
Isn't forgetfulness
It's a challenge to change your heart
There's always a price to pay
Living in f e a r is so very dear
Can you really afford it?

We’ve decided to risk melting our guns as a show of strength
We’ve decided to risk melting our guns as a show of strength
As a show of strength!

Our wide eyes are not so weak
They’re a product of a hard-won wisdom
So we will turn the other cheek
The apple pie cooling on the windowsill
Is such a welcome change from
Living in f e a r
Year after year after year
Can we really afford it?
Can you really afford it?

We have decided to start melting our guns as a show of strength
As a show of strength
We decided to leave the doors unlocked, our face unlocked
As a show of strength.

We're not green
We're just pleasant
We're not green
We're just pleasant
We’re not green
We’ve decided to start melting our guns as a show of strength.

Our wide eyes aren’t naive
They’re a product of a kind of exhaustion
Will there come a time when we believe
The only way ahead is to put down our arms
When we finally know
The bitter consequence of not doing so
There's such a price to pay
For living this way
Living this way

We don’t invite crime
We don’t invite crime

Will you let one lost soul change what we stand for?
I don’t think so.

What a waste of time
The Great Wall of China
What a waste of time
The Maginot line
The Great Wall of China
Что за трата времени
Берлинская стена
What a waste of time
Die Berliner Mauer
What a waste of time
What a waste of time
