Used to be that failure Only meant you didn't try In a world where people Gave a damn Great big wars in little places Look at all those frightened faces But don't come here We just don't have the room Love thy neighbor's wife and daughter Cleanse your life with holy water We don't need to bathe We've got perfume Used to be a knight in shining armor Didn't have to own a shiny car Dignity and courage Were the measure of a man Not the drugs he needs To hide the scar Whoa, oh, oh, oh.... Can your teacher read Does your preacher pray Does your president have soul Have you heard a real good Ethnic joke today Mama took her speed Daddy ran away But you musn't lose control Let's cut a class I got some grass The kids are wild We just can't tame em Do we have the right To blame em We fed em all our indecision We raped their minds with television But what the hell They're too young to feel pain I believe that Love can save tomorrow I believe the truth Can make us free Someone tried to say it And we nailed him to a cross I guess it's still the way It used to be
