Derek Webb – Cobra Con lyrics

You wanna rock with the cops on the front line
You wanna kick it with the people in the back
You strike a match and you throw back a cocktail
There's got to be a better way

It is harder to stay
It is harder to wait
To out-love, to out-suffer them

I wanna dream up a world I wanna live in
I wanna spray it on a building downtown
I wanna protest with patience and a paycheck
'Cause there's got to be a better way


Don't wanna wait
No drugs or sleep
I wanna hold your hand grenade

God bless these bombs
Baptize this rope
Lie with us in the bed we've made
