Be a painting, hung up there til your body met your head.
Which were made of silver.

Who didn't know no rock and roll.
Just a mission made of guns that they give boys in Vietnam
But they always told him

There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.

But somebody got there first and took them all.
