Lyrics: (Not entirely correct)

Say! Hey!


[Verse 1]

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


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse 3]

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


[Verse 4]

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


[Chorus]


[Bridge]


[Interlude]

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                        
"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
