World Interrupted

Sorry, please, excuse me.
Has anyone else noticed that the world's gone crazy?
I mean it's bad, but it's a fact,
They're cloning babies with animals to see what we can get
If we mess with natural law
Oh so super smart, but really who is it for?

So, while they're cloning and sending rockets into space
Millions of children, well they'll be trafficked, they'll be slaves,
And we'll be sipping our semi-chilled chardonnay and say
'oh it's such a shame, exactly who are we supposed to blame?'
Well what do we gain if we gain it all,
Just more and more, till we lose our soul?

So how much more can the soul can it take, groaning underneath our selfish ways?
After all, after all, it's … to say for ourselves
Between all the nothing and all of the world
Between all the love, the loss and the stealth
Everyone needs some kind of help.

Yesterday the news said, 'a pregnant man was giving birth',
And maybe tomorrow there'll be no oil for us to burn
But for today they say they're testing nuclear missiles in case
Well just in case, in case of what?
In case all your fighting doesn't stop?
So while you're talking, and shaking hands and launching your missiles
Somewhere a rich man is popping pills to stay alive
He just lost everything just in an instant,
In a flash, just crashed, oh the markets screamed,
Quick sell the house, hurry, mortgage our dreams
And just down the road a teenage tragedy
And a pregnant brownie brought to you by mtv

So how much more can the soul can it take, groaning underneath our selfish ways?
After all, after all, it's … say for ourselves
How much more can this soul take, groaning underneath our selfish ways?
After all, after all it's … to say for ourselves
Between all the progress and all of the hell,
Between all the slums and all the hotels
Everyone needs some kind of help

Out of the dust surely dawn will arise
Out of the ground our hope will ignite
Out of the night the truth will endure
Calling the end until the office appear
