Come gather round and listen, if you can get that near If not, we'll use a microphone so all poor souls can hear And hold hands in a circle, or stare bored straight ahead Rejoice in your rebellion, or wish you were in bed
Come gather round and liten, or watch it on the screen The campfire burned out long ago, the songs all got obscene And left us with some rich kids trying hard to be sincere Let it fly straight out the other after going in one ear
Come gather round--from the kings and the queens on down If you listen close, you can hear the sound Of a human voice saying "Come Gather Round" Come Gather Round
So listen to my story, though I haven't yet begun We have to cut through so much crap to have a little fun And who are "we" now anyway to even earn the name? We're so convinced we're different, it makes us all the same
Don't fall for the maturity It ain't real They just call it "integrity" Please don't grow up Please blow up your TV
Come all you desperate rebels and hang your heads in shame For those who live in self-contempt with just themselves to blame And for those who can, who do nothing, and those who can't, who succeed To cry out "bloody murder" the moment that they bleed...
Come gather round--from the kings and the queen on down If you listen close, you can hear the sound Of a human voice saying "Come Gather Round" Come Gather Round
