Lyrics: (Not entirely correct)

 

Say! Hey!

 

Hear the sound of the falling rain

Coming down like an Armageddon plague (Hey!) (Verse 1)

The shame, the ones who die without a name

 

There's a song sounding out of key

To a hymn called faith and misery (Hey!) (Verse 2)

A plead, 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

 

There's a drum pounding out of time

Another protestor has crossed the line (Hey!) (Verse 3)

The line, the money's on the homicide

 

Can I get another Amen? (Amen!)

There's a rag wrapped around the score of men (Hey!) (Verse 4)

A gag, A plastic bag on a monument

 

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

 

The representative from California has the floor:

Speak out to the president gasbag

"Bombs away!" is your punishment

Pulverize the Eiffel Towers

You got a choice so don't repent (Interlude)

"Bang Bang!" goes the broken glass man

Kill all the fags that don't agree

Trial by fires, sinners, buyers

I found a way that's meant for me

Check out... check out our lives on holiday

 

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies

This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

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
