I live my life like an ordinary guy
I move fast and I let the thing around me go by
Don't try to fix others, I just leave them alone
Besides I figure that I got enough to fix on my own
Don't have time to care about it
Don't have time to dwell upon it
I just heard some news that I thought might be true
So, I'm askin' of you? Is there a war goin on?
It's not that I don't feel compassionate
It's just that this world isn't quite how I'd fashion it
I'm not allowed to contribute to
I'm not allowed because I just have so much to do
I'm not tryin' to simply ignore it
I might even like to do somethin' for it
Trouble is that I'm not really that sure
Oh, how I wish that I were – Is there a war goin' on?
Don't I get to think about
Don't I get to stop it
Don't I get to vote upon it
Don't I get to cry?
Don't want to mean, but these things are so hazy
I'm not a marine or in the army or the navy
I have the knowledge of the common man
So, why do I feel like I'm not quite up on the plan
Guess it's fine, as long as I'm not in it
Guess it's fine, as long as we win it
Forget I asked, I'm not sure why I wanted to know
Mean if it's so, then it's so – there's probably a war goin' on
