Lyrics: (Not entirely correct)

Say! Hey!

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an Armageddon plague (Hey!)		(Verse 1)
The shame, the ones who die without a name

There's a song sounding out of key
To a hymn called faith and misery (Hey!)		(Verse 2)
A plead, the company lost the war today

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		(Chorus)
On holiday

There's a drum pounding out of time
Another protestor has crossed the line (Hey!)		(Verse 3)
The line, the money's on the homicide

Can I get another Amen?  (Amen!)
There's a rag wrapped around the score of men (Hey!)	(Verse 4)
A gag, A plastic bag on a monument

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

The representative from California has the floor:
Speak out to the president gasbag
"Bombs away!" is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel Towers
You got a choice so don't repent			(Interlude)
"Bang Bang!" goes the broken glass man 
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trial by fires, sinners, buyers
I found a way that's meant for me 
Check out... check out our lives on holiday 

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives
This is our lives on holiday


Legend:

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
b = bend
/ = slide down
\ = slide up
v = vibrato
