lyrics

I read the news today, oh boy, and this is what it said:
Four thousand carcasses unburned; I guess we’ve made our bed.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

Break out that riot gear, they’re burning Bradford to the ground.
Don’t worry if you’ve missed the show, it’s coming to your town.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

They’re holding public executions on the White House lawn.
Come get your souvenir syringe before supplies are gone.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish.

Now Mickey Mouse is in the Hague promoting tooth decay,
While down in Gaza we prefer to the look the other way.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

Gorillas, bonobos, orangs, and chimps cannot escape;
Our cousins fallen victim to the statutory ape.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

Lay out your towels, now we’re defrosting the Antarctic shelf.
If time and tide won’t wait, we’ll soon be drinking to your health.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

We want it all and we want more because we’ve got the most.
Some say we’ve got it coming and the cheque is in the post.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide.

Something tiny is after you, and it’s gonna get you.

It’s all so easy blaming someone else
When I am oh-so guilty of so much myself.
I wish that I could hide in a hole somewhere, someplace dark.
But even more than that I could change into
Something more, something good,
Something more pleasing to the eye, more soothing to the touch,
Something genuine, less obstructive, more complete.

The sky is falling in Metropolis, we’re dust to dust.
History repeats: we’ve met the enemy, and he is us.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

If we didn’t know what we’re doing, I guess it’d be okay.
But we know just what we’re doing, we just do it anyway.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.

Groove on down and get to grips, it’s the apocalypse.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
I wish that I could hide, I wish that I could change.
