Lyrics

How is your heart, little darling?
I didn't mean to get so mad
Let me just hold you closely
How did things get so bad?
I know how to pick on you
You pushed me over the edge
We caused so much agony
We can't seem to move ahead

What is going on?
What is it we need?
Have we gone insane?
Is this just our greed?
Fighting for a chance to survive

What kind of future will we have?
Will we ever find peace?
Everybody thinks we're crazy
They're about to call the police
I don't wanna be a chump
You think I'm a fascist pig
Right now everything is black
I don't think we'll ever give

What is going on?
What is it we need?
Have we gone insane?
Is this just our greed?
Fighting for a chance to survive

All day, all day, all day

What is going on?
What is it we need?
Have we gone insane?
Or is this just greed?
What is going on?
What is it we need?
Have we gone insane?
Or is this just greed?
Fighting for a chance to survive
Fighting for a chance to survive
