about

All sides agree to end the war and break down the wall between them

lyrics

Aren't we tired of killing all the time
Of wiping all these nations for the sake of land and pride
The sacred of our lives
Is being left behind
Our bodies are just numbers in the government's eyes
We always mark the other
And then we want them gone
But only joined together we can start to learn

Aren't we tired of hating in the name
Of looking at the difference when we all were born the same
You throw the stone of anger
I shoot the shot of hate
But who will tell our children what our lives had really meant
We always mark the other
And then we want them gone
But only joined together we can start to grow

This has been going on so bloody long
Why can’t everybody just get along
Aren’t you people bored of singing the same song
Would a gentle new melody be so wrong?

Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But right now to me that makes no sense at all

I mean come on
We even kind of look the same
Speech ain’t that different and we pretty much cook the same
This whole thing’s a massive political kerfuffle
I mean – come on people, we all love falafel
Obviously it’s much deeper than that
It’s two whole nations being fried in hot fat
It isn’t even about national pride
It’s just about having somewhere safe to reside

We are dealing with massive political oppression
Silent menace of territorial aggression
Constant threat of domestic repossession
We need positive action not just talking session

Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But right now to me that makes no sense at all

Any time you have a problem Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But any idiot can see that makes no sense at all

At best it’s a temporary solution
Causing more anger and mental pollution
How can we blame a people for their rage
When they’re being forced to live in a cage
I mean I’m no great geographer but it looks to me
That both our lands are quite close to the sea
And I’m no psychologist but it seems to me
That in summer people might like to swim in the sea
And I’m no political theorist but it’s clear to me
That if you can’t do that then you’re far from free

All you can do is float on harsh salty dead sea
Which for your situation’s quite a good analogy
Get in and it stings
Get out it’s too hot
Try to swim elsewhere and you’ll probably get shot
Get in and it stings
Get out it’s too hot
Try to swim elsewhere and you’ll probably get shot

There's no solution in destruction
No redemption in revenge
No satisfaction in the action
Of hurting your fellow man
