lyrics

buy a gun
start a war
can you tell me
what are we fighting for?
there's a madman screaming
outside my door
but at least he's free

find a girl
take her in
if we both lose
then we both win
the madman screams
ripped at the seams
but at least he's free

but you can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you now?
you can drink the water, but you're gonna get sick
i've heard it all a thousand times before
it's the same old story
it's the same old tired bore
someone come and tell me what it is I can't understand

break the truth
rape my mind
all so you can climb
a little higher on the vine
the madman screams about a broken dream
and how the shackles he's been wearing won't let his body free

but you can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you now?
you can drink the water, but you're gonna get sick
i've heard it all a thousand times before
it's the same old story
it's the same old tired bore
someone come and tell me what it is I can't understand

we made the tempest
with fog machines
smoke and mirrors
in a fever dream
if we can build it
we can burn it down
arms to arms now
everybody gather 'round

we made the earthquake
we made the sound
we made the ground shake
we brought the hounds
will we destroy what
we did create?
or are we bound to be slaves
slaves to our fate?

but you can't teach an old dog new tricks, can you now?
you can drink the water, but you're gonna get sick, hey
i've heard it all a thousand times before
it's the same old story
it's the same old fucking bore
someone come and tell me what it is I can't understand
