• No, no, she can't take your mind and leave
    I know it's just another trick she's got up her sleeve
    I can't believe that she really wants you to die
    After all, it's more than enough to pay for your lie

    Chorus (note 1)
    Wait a minute, watch what you're doing with your time
    All the endless ruins of the past must stay behind, yeah

    Well, can't you see that you're killing each other's soul
    You're both out in the streets and you got no place to go
    Your constant battles are getting to be a bore
    So go somewhere else and continue your cream puff war

  • The other day they waited
    The sky was dark and faded (note 1)
    Solemnly they stated
    He has to die
    You know he has to die

    And all the children learning
    From books that they were burning
    Every leaf was turning
    To watch him die
    You know he has to die

    The summer sun looked down on him
    His mother could but frown on him
    And all the others sound on him
    But it doesn't seem to matter

    And when the day had ended
    With rainbow colours blended
    His mind remained unbended
    He had to die
    You know he had to die
    You know he had to die

  • If only I could be less blind
    If only I knew what to find
    Everywhere and all of the time
    It's bending my mind

    Confusion's Prince is at my door
    The crown I wear is the one he wore
    He's here to bring me down some more
    And bend my mind

    The friendly stranger call my name
    He only wants me for his game
    But it don't matter just the same
    I'll bend his mind

    I'll wave my flags into the sun
    I've fought my wars and now they're won
    And I didn't need nobody's gun
    I bent their minds
