Lyrics:

Say! Hey!

Hear the sound of the falling rain
Coming down like an Armageddon flame (Hey!)		(Verse 1)
The shame, the ones who die without a name


Hear the dogs howling out of key
To a hymn called "Faith and Misery" (Hey!)		(Verse 2)
And bleed, the company lost the war today


I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		(Chorus)
On holiday


Hear the drum pounding out of time
Another protestor has crossed the line (Hey!)		(Verse 3)
To find, the money's on the other side


Can I get another Amen?  (Amen!)
There's a flag wrapped around the score of men (Hey!)	(Verse 4)
A gag, A plastic bag on a monument


I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		(Chorus)
On holiday


(Bridge)


(Solo)



The representative from California has the floor:

Sieg Heil to the president gasman
Bombs away is your punishment
Pulverize the Eiffel towers
Who criticize your government				(Interlude)
Bang bang goes the broken glass man
Kill all the fags that don't agree
Trials by fire, setting fire
Is not a way that's meant for me
Just cause, just cause, because we're outlaws yeah!


I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives		(Chorus)
I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies
This is the dawning of the rest of our lives


This is our lives on holiday
