It's about crimes committed over seas, and at home. Most of it's about fighting to stop it.

Another Day

KMilliron

The Ambassador isn't in today

But we'll fire the gun any way

Holocausts, Kristalnachts

Bombs and Enola Gays

The sound of fire is far that way

Over the ocean over the fire

We can put the working man on trial

While children lie awake tonight

Will the people please rise

Against the rising tide

Throw your hands up

Or hang on for the ride

Let our people rest for just another night

Prepare tomorrow’s fight

Will the people please stand up

Let Jiminy have his say

Listen to the dwarves sing "Hi- Ho!"

Off to war we go

Let's just rest another day

Tomorrow we're on our way

Mark them with their queues

Put their labor to use

Let them hold up everything we know

Then we'll bury themwith stones

Misery's our master

But paranoia works faster

We enforce your rules

While we disregard our own

Will the people please rise

Against the rising tide

Throw your hands up

Or hang on for the ride

Let our people rest for just another night

Prepare tomorrow’s fight

Will the people please stand up

Let Jiminy have his say

Listen to the dwarves sing "Hi- Ho!"

Off to war we go

Let's just rest another day

Tomorrow we're on our way

One more thing

To put off another day

Rest no more

We'll be on our way

Fight on your fronts

And we'll be fighting home

Will the people please rise

[rest your head tonight]

Against the rising tide

[let someone else set it right]

Throw your hands up

[rest your head tonight]

Or hang on for the ride

[let someone else set it right]

Let our people rest for just another night

[rest your head tonight]

Prepare tomorrow’s fight

[We're going off to fight]

Will the people please stand up

[Misery's our master]

Let Jiminy have his say

[Paranoia's faster]

Listen to the dwarves sing "Hi- Ho!"

[Misery's our master]

For it's off to war we go

[Paranoia's faster]

Let's just rest another day

[Misery's our master]

Tomorrow we're on our way

[Help is on the way]

Will the people please rise

Against the rising tide

Throw your hands up

Or hang on for the ride

Let our people rest for just another night

Prepare tomorrow’s fight

Will the people please stand up

Let Jiminy have his say

Listen to the dwarves sing "Hi- Ho!"

Off to war we go

Let's just rest another day

Tomorrow we're on our way

Let's just rest another day
