Superman was killed in Dallas
There's no love left in the palace
Someone took the Beatle's lead guitar
Have another Chivas Regal
Your twelve years old and sex is legal
Your parents don't know where or who you are
Used to be the hero of the ball game
Took the time to shake the loser's hand
Used to be that failure only meant you didn't try
In a world where people gave a damn

Great big wars in little places
Look at all those frightened faces
But don't come here we just don't got the room
Love thy neighbor's wife and daughter
You cleanse your life with holy water
Hey we don't need to bathe we've got perfume
Used to be a knight in shining armor
Didn't have to own a shiny car
'Coz dignity and courage were the measure of a man
And not the drugs he needs to hide his scars

Can your teacher read
Does your preacher pray
Does your president have soul
Have you heard a real good ethnic joke today
Mama took her speed
And daddy ran away
But you mustn't lose control
You see the kids are wild we just can't tame 'em
Do we have a right to blame 'em

We fed them all our indecision
And raped their minds with television
But what the hell
They're too young to feel pain
But I believe that love will save tomorrow
I believe that truth will make us free
Someone tried to say it and we nailed him to a cross
I guess it's still the way it used to be
