give a hoot lyrics – d.r.i

i give a hoot
but i still pollute
i don’t know what’s the matter with me
i won’t kill
but i think i’d shoot
if it meant whether or not i’d be free

simulated sympathy
in a world full of pain
it’s each for his own
if there’s something to gain

i’ve got my own problems
it’s hard to care
there’s just more death
then i can bear

so i fly my flag at half mast
big, black clouds hanging over me
my days are always overcast
burnt out buildings return my stare

but i must hang on
though the sea is dead
i must hold on
someone said

i must go on
though young men die
i must push on
but i can’t rember why
