lyrics

If all the people in the world agreed
That every childhood should be lived in peace
And every child became a proper man
Who’d never think to hold a gun in his hand

The NRA would lose all memberships
Courts would close and crime would not exist
And all policemen who got rid of work
Would teach the students how to sing like a bird

Will we be better
Will there be good weather
In our painted world?
Will we be easy?
Or will we stay as greedy as before?
Can we be sure?
no. no. no. no. no.

If all computers in the world would crash
We’d pile them up to see them burn down to ash
And as there was no world wide web anymore
it could be nice to ask a neighbour next door

And if your neighbours find an answer again
And stop to gaze into their idiot lamps
I believe one billion neighbours will leave their flats
So overwhelmed to see the sunball set

Will we be better
And pull ourselves together
In our painted world?
Will it be the dawn of new era?
Or the calm before the terror storms again?
Can you be sure, my friend?
no. no. no. no. no.

Will we be better
Will it even matter
In our painted world?
Will everything be hunky-dory?
Or is heaven just too boring without hell?
Can we ever tell?
no. no. no. no. no.
