And when the clock strikes 12, tell me where you're gonna be
Cleaning up the mess we've made or watching your TV
And if you have to ask, and you don't have a clue
There's snow in Arizona while they're bombing in Beirut!

I hope some day...
When I'm dead and gone
We learned to right...
Everything that's wrong
With loving hands...
Turn sick to strong
Our time will tell...
If life goes on, on, on, on, on,...

When a storm hits your front door with a roar you can't ignore
You run, run away, but there's no place to hide, mate!
When the days turn into night, you don't got no chance to fight
'Cause you're too late, so kiss your ass goodbye, mate!

It just don't make no sense, there's a million mouths to feed
We've got military action over monetary need
And you can turn your back, or you can plant the seed
You can choose compassion over universal greed

I hope some day...
When I'm dead and gone
We learned to right...
Everything that's wrong
With loving hands...
Turn sick to strong
Our time will tell...
If life goes on, on, on, on, on...

When a storm hits your front door with a roar you can't ignore
You run, run away, but there's no place to hide, mate!
When the days turn into night, you don't got no chance to fight
'Cause you're too late, so kiss your ass goodbye, mate!
[2x]

And you can turn your back, but it won't go away
And you don't look scared, but you should be afraid
You can shut your mouth, but you still have a say
And you just don't care, for tomorrow today.
[2x]

Well, no way, way! No way, no way, no way, no waaay!

When a storm hits your front door with a roar you can't ignore
You run, run away, but there's no place to hide, mate!
When the days turn into night, you don't got no chance to fight
'Cause you're too late, so kiss your ass goodbye, mate!
[2x]
