Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
An ill wind comes arising
Across the cities of the plain
There's no swimming in the heavy water
No singing in the acid rain
Red alert
Red alert
Verse 2
It's so hard to stay together
Passing through revolving doors
We need someone to talk to
And someone to sweep the floors
Incomplete
Incomplete
Verse 3
The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you
I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you
Verse 4
Cruising under your radar
Watching from satellites
Take a page from the red book
And keep them in your sights
Red alert
Red alert
Verse 5
Left and rights of passage
Black and whites of youth
Who can face the knowledge
That the truth is not the truth
Obsolete
Absolute, yeah
Verse 6
Ohh
Verse 7
The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you
I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you
Verse 8
The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you
I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you
Verse 9
Absalom, Absalom, Absalom
