(Riff 1)
I said, "I wonder how it is I'm standing here
War is raging everywhere under the sky?"
I feel defeated here by everything
Cheated here by everyone on every side

I want to take you to a quiet place
And never ask the meaninglessness to reply
When will we get an hour to celebrate
Find the time to breathe a sigh?

(Chorus A)
I've been working too hard to be living and later
Walking all night 'til I'm shivering and is it
Wasting the time I've been given to maybe
Wait for the day of oblivion?

(Riff 1)
I want to take it to the president
Him and all his cabinet with a broom (START GUITAR 2 RIFF)
I want to sweep the Halls of Arrogance
Sweep the walls of the excrement of these baboons (REPEAT GUITAR 2 RIFF)

But I respect and prize the covenant
I respect the process, I respect the rules (GUITAR 2 RIFF)
When will we find a chord as resonant
As to shake the sheets and make us move?

(Chorus A)
You've been working too hard to be living and later
Walking all night 'til you're shivering and is it
Wasting the time you've been given, to maybe
Wait for the day of oblivion?

(Chorus B)
And she said, "Roll out and make your mark
Pull on your boots and march
Then roll out and meet me where
You'll find me doing my own part"

Roll out your dented car
Maybe it won't roll far
But if you do everything you can
Well babe, that's more than a start

(Bridge)

(Chorus B)
And she said, "Roll out and make your mark
Pull on your boots and march
Then roll out and meet me where
You'll find me good and ready"

Sometimes it's gonna hurt
Sometimes you're gonna deserve that
But if you hold on to what you've got
I know you'll keep it steady, keep it steady

(Outro, two bars only)

(Chorus B) (START GUITAR 2 RIFF UNTIL OUTRO)
So there's no end to work (So there's no end to work) 
So there's no end to murk (So there's no end to murk)
So everything else is dirt
But I am pure and steady

So cut out the morbid verse (So cut out the morbid verse)
I know you'll make it work (I know you'll make it work)
And how you gonna save the world
When the world ain't ready, world ain't ready?

(Outro 16x or so times)
