Alanis Morissette

No Avalon

Alanis Morissette


I'm just a white girl
From a small, safe town
What could I possibly know about destruction?
My lawn sure looks green today
Underneath these suburban skies
But the little boy next door
Wants to be the Lord of the Flies

It's like Cain and Able
And the Holy Sacrifice
And I have to believe that God
Has closed his eyes
And if there is no Avalon
And we only have one life
It's hard to conceive why we let our brothers die

My bed is so safe here
And my rose-coloured glasses, they're broken
And how the truth leaks in
And I, I can't imagine
I saw it on the news tonight
That they'd announce his name
I saw the blood on his hands
And they told me to look away

I tell yaiit's like Cain and Able
And the Holy Sacrifice
And I have to believe that God
Has closed his eyes
And if there is no Avalon
And we only have one life
It's hard to conceive why we let our sisters die

It's like...
Why, why?
Why?
It's a confusing civilization, darling

It's like Cain and Able
And the Holy Sacrifice
And I have to believe that God
Has closed his eyes
And there is no Avalon
And we only have one life
It's hard to conceive why we let our people die
We let 'em die
And watch them die
