Some of us are born, and then some of us are born again. Some of us are scared to death, and some just don't believe in it. Something's always wrong, there's a line, an idea I can't get behind No one knows what's right. Some try, some just try to find a king, they sing
Who will save us now? It's our life, but we don't want to live it. We want to be told how By something or someone who's better than us Who we know we can trust, Who will always protect us. But keep us scared to death so we never ask questions, Who'll dictate the consequences of our actions And give us peace of mind about our miserable lives, Confined and content, all we want is a place we can hide. We can hide.
So we've always fought our wars for what we're told we're dying for. Land and love and God and wealth, But men in charge protect themselves. You can rest assured, It's the young and the poor who fought all our wars. Led to death by men, Who they chose and hoped would protect them.
And who will save us now? It's our life, but we don't want to live it. And all you'll get is down 'Cause the people you elect to protect your best interest Will just protect themselves and all their investments. And even the few with the best of intentions Will just push their views of what they think is right for you And everyone else, you can't think for yourself 'Cause you've chosen to let someone else do it for you. For you.
So we're left to drift between our waking life and all our dreams Reality is relative and that's all the advice I'll give. Life and death are hard, They're such strange and complicated issues. So listen, listen well for insight No one knows what's right for you
And who will save us now? It's a wrong and irrelative question 'Cause we've figured it out. With the people who love us, Who call us their brothers through lessons we've learned From our fathers and mothers, not looking for someone to bind our solutions, To fight our own battles, or show what truth is, By working hard to find our own peace of mind Living and learning 'til we know what's right for our lives. Our lives.
