Sing

There is this thing that's like touching except you don't touch.
Back in the day it just went without saying at all.
All the world's history gradually dying of shock.
There is this thing that's like talking except you don't talk.

You... sing.

Sing for the bartender.
Sing for the janitor.
Sing.

Sing for the camera.
Sing for the animal.
Sing.

Sing for the children
shooting the children.
Sing.

Sing for the teachers
who told you that you couldn't.
Sing.

Just sing.

There is this thing
keeping everyone's lungs and lips
locked.

It is called fear
and it's seeing a great
renaissance.

After the show
you can not sing wherever
you want.

But for now
let's just pretend we're all gonna
get bombed.

So sing.

Sing cause it's obvious.
Sing for the astronaut.
Sing.

Sing for the president.
Sing for the terrorist.
Sing.

Sing for the soccer team.
Sing for the ganga weed.
Sing.

Sing for the kid
with the phone who refuses to.
Sing.

Just sing.

Ahhhhhhhhh

Life is no cabaret.

Ahhhhhhhhh

We're inviting you anyway.

Ahhhhhhhhh

You motherfuckers just sing something.

Ahhhhhhhhh

You motherfuckers just sing something.

Ahhhhhhhhh
