    I Don’t Mind

    by Dylan Kongos

    It’s the start of the night
    Head on my shoulders spinning
    Low light, passing through people
    From room to room, womb to tomb
    Got to reunite and break some bricks like ’86
    And if I lose my mind…

    I don’t mind

    So all the corners are getting crowded
    People and music getting louder
    The place is out of space
    Spilling into the streets
    Just stomp your feet
    And all together close your eyes
    And shout out loud

    I don’t mind

    And I know what I know girl
    But I don’t know what I know when I know it
    And I hear what I hear girl
    But I don’t know what I hear when I hear it
    And I see what I see girl
    But I don’t know what I see when I see it
    And I know what I know girl
    But I don’t know what I know when I know it

    The sun will rise and fall again
    Kick my shoes off and count to ten
    Get this girl closer till we’re touching skin
    Making some space, and if she don’t mind…

    So all the corners are getting crowded
    People and music getting louder
    The place is out of space
    Spilling into the streets
    Just stomp your feet
    And all together close your eyes
    And shout out loud

    Escape
    by Jesse Kongos

    Every few thousand years
    Come true man's greatest fears
    All the living things
    Mother nature brings to tears

    When the bombs are bursting in the air
    (And) the rockets are making that red glare
    I'm heading down
    Down to that good hope town
    Where the weather's fair

    So why don't you come away
    With me my love
    We'll do what it takes
    I'll keep you safe

    Why don't you stay by me
    (And) when the time comes
    We'll escape

    When the big one finally hits LA
    When Yellowstone has it's day
    We're heading to the the Southern tip
    On a plane or on a ship
    We'll do what it takes we'll find a way

    And if that cloud forms up above
    No sign anywhere of a dove
    There'll be no reason left to stay
    We'll try and live another day
    In a place where there's still love

    Look At Me

    by Jesse Kongos

    Look at me - I’ll give you something to see
    I’ll speak free - you got something I need

    I tell my pride - take a seat in the back
    But there’s an ego inside - he’s a maniac

    Now I ain’t trying to make a big scene
    But you know me, I gotta see and be seen

    So look at me - Oh Oh
    Look at me
    You got something I need you gotta give it to me
    Look at me - Oh Oh
    Look at me
    You got something I need you gotta give it to me

    HEY
    Now the time has come for a yay or a nay
    Like the moon and the sun each gets half the day
    Day and night we play this game
    I’m a free man at dawn, at dusk your slave
    Slave to the need, the push and the pull
    I need you gone but I want you to stay
    Stay for the night, leave with the light
    I need you gone but I want you to stay…

    Another day gone by - me dreaming I’m free
    But I can’t stop buying what you’re selling to me
    I say I don’t care just what you think
    But yeah you know me, I say it all with a wink

    So look at me…

    HEY
    Now the time has come for a yay or a nay
    Like the moon and the sun each gets half the day
    Day and night we play this game
    With the dark and the light, the push and the pull
    I’m free at dawn, at dusk your slave
    I need you gone but I want you to stay…

    Repeat After Me

    by Johnny Kongos

    Lyric video: Daniel Kongos

    Factors of nine, reduced over time
    Chasing them primes, and counting rhymes
    Facing the east, bread without yeast
    Blind faith in the priests, and fear of some beast

    Breaking of bread, eating the dead
    Bowing my head, Gold out of Lead
    Wearing the veil, seeking the grail
    Wall where you wail, and musical scales

    Candles are burned, incantations are learned
    Ashes in urns, and prophets return
    Adam and Eve, three days to grieve
    Stoned if you don't believe, only fuck to conceive

    But it’s so hard to sign my own surrender
    So hard to do what I’ve intended
    So hard to leave what I've defended
    So hard to separate what's blended

    If I could breathe, I’d be free
    And I'd get high, I’d turn water to wine

    If I could be, I’d breathe free at last
    And I'd get high, I’d get so high
    I'd get so high, if I could breathe

    Five sided stars, buried or burned to a char
    Fashion as law, and nailing trinkets to doors
    One hundred and eight, commanded to procreate
    Fasting for forty days, and death if you desecrate

    Two Thousand and Twelve, ringing bells
    Nine circles of hell, division by three
    And seven, you see

    Repeat, repeat after me, repetition is key
    Repeat after me, repetition is key

    Birds Do It

    by Johnny Kongos

    Birds do it, bees do it
    Gotta a feeling even priests do it
    I don't believe we've met before, won't you please do it with me.

    Please do it, there’s nothing to it
    You don’t even know my name, I knew it
    No-one’s ever turned you down before, and it ain’t gonna start with me

    Could I buy you drink, could I sing you a song
    I could start a war or we could both just get along
    I could build a wall, or I could tear it down
    And I could tell you why everything's that same old...

    Lie, I say I love you
    But you don’t need me to
    And I don’t blame you
    It’s the same, every time, just another lie

    I say I love you
    But you don’t need me to
    Cause I still want you
    Just the same, every night
    That we scream and we fight
    We don’t care, who is right, just another lie

    Birds do it, bees do it
    God, a feeling even he do it
    I don't believe we've met before, won't you please do it with me

    KONGOS - I'm Only Joking

    Written by Jesse Kongos

    Lyrics:

    Wadu-aidu-wadaidu

    There is a song
    You're trembling to it's tune
    At the request of the moon

    Licking her chops
    She looks at the lunatics
    She needs another fix

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing i said
    What are you smoking
    I'm just fucking with your head
    Only a crazy
    Little thing i read

    Maybe the planets
    Are trying to become the stars
    And we really came from Mars

    The earth is alive
    And man is a parasite
    (and) Heavenly bodies make us fight

    I'm only joking...

    Underground

    by Dylan Kongos

    When I'm lost, I'll never be found
    You can bring your guns, and your floods, and your bloodhounds
    I said, 'cause once I'm lost I'll never make a sound
    They'll say, he never made it out
    He's gotta be six feet underground

    Well I watch the films and I read the books in my Sunday Best
    While you search the ground and the trees of the Northwest
    I know, just a tie in flight 305 is what you found
    They'll say, he left five behind
    And now he's six feet underground

    Woohoooo
    Woohoooo

    Oh I am running
    Oh I am underground

  • Kongos - Come With Me Now | Live @ JBTV

    4:03

    South African alternative rock band Kongos have taken the world by storm with the success of their hit single Come With Me Now. The quartet, consisting of all brothers, performed the song live as guests at JBTV Studios in Chicago. While this track has had success overseas for years now, Kongos has just begun to receive extended airplay in the US after re-releasing their album Lunatic (Epic Records) in January of 2014. This live rendition of the song, which featured impressive solos on the accordion and slide guitar, got the JBTV audience going and showed off Kongos' striking stage presence.

    Lyrics:

    Come with me now
    Come with me now

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how

    Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how

    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    I stood at this door before, I'm told
    But a part of me knows that I'm growing too old

    Confused what I thought with something I felt
    Confuse what I feel with something that's real
    I tried to sell my soul last night
    Funny, he wouldn't even take a bite

    Far away
    I heard him say (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say (Come with me now)

    Far away
    I heard him say (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say (Come with me now)

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna show you how

    Afraid to lose control
    And caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death

    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight
    I need to lose myself tonight

    Whoa, come with me now

    Whoa, come with me now
    I'm gonna take you down
    Whoa, come with me now

    Hey You, Yeah You

    by Dylan Kongos

    I stepped in from the cold and froze
    Those big old eyes had me quivering
    Shivering in my boots and clothes
    One look and I knew
    No turning back, no I didn’t choose
    Yeah you looked right through
    I was putty in your hands - do what you do
    Please do, do what you do

    Hey you, yeah you
    On the far side of the room
    You caught my eye and my body
    My body it followed so soon
    Hey you, yeah you
    There’s a hole in my heart
    If only you knew
    Now there’s one more
    And it feels like
    I’m breaking in two

    Come back to bed, you said
    But it wasn’t warm
    Far away with your back turned
    When I wake up I’m going home
    One look and you knew
    That I saw your pain and I saw the truth
    Yeah I looked right through
    Wrong time for love
    Gotta do what you gotta do what you gotta do

    By Dylan Kongos:

    So long my friend, my foe, my love, my pain
    The road's calling out my name
    Dreaming of La Boheme
    Maybe I'll go to Barbizon
    Or see a girl before she catches cold and she's gone
    Or maybe I'll just travel on

    So long my flame, my warmth, my fear, my fight
    The road's calling again tonight
    Maybe I'll catch a train to Rome
    See the world until I can't go on
    Or maybe I'll come traveling home

    'Cause when the road takes it's toll
    And these cities come and go
    Filled with people I don't know
    You'll be in my heart
    And I'll dream of where you are tonight

    And when the years pass us by
    I wonder if we'll cry
    For losing so much time
    For moments we may miss
    For the love that still exists tonight

    Maybe I'll go it all alone
    See the world and make my way back home
    Or maybe I'll keep traveling on

    You Are Strange -

    By Jesse Kongos

    I was wondering what you were pondering on
    Who, who are you and what planet did you wander here from?
    I want you to explain how you came across my name
    I want you to confess where you learned to wear that dress

    ‘Cause you are strange
    You make my brain rearrange

    And I
    Yeah I don’t know why
    But I see you, you see me too
    Right through, you know me
    And I know you that is why
    Yeah I love you

    So I watch carefully as all the layers come undone
    Who, who are you now and will you change under the sun?
    I want you to be true even when your mood is blue
    We gotta be our best if we are to pass this test

    And you are pure
    I think you just might be the cure

    And I
    Yeah I don’t know why
    But I see you, you see me too
    Right through
    You know me and I know you
    That is why
    I love you
    Yeah I love you

    Where I Belong

    by Danny Kongos

    I think I need a new tattoo
    I want to influence an age group
    Maybe 15 to 22
    They like to do what they want to

    I want the right mix of innocence
    And sustainable offense
    My shoes are a personality
    A fractal of my geometry

    I wanna run through the Milky Way
    Maybe disobey a cosmic ray
    Weigh everything on judgement day
    And see how much there is left to pay

    I want my answers to be questioned
    I want more than one best friend
    I want money that’s already spent
    I wanna act as if I don’t pretend, I cannot pretend

    I play along
    But I’ve wondered all my life
    Where I belong

    The universe is just one song
    But I’ve wondered all my life
    Where I belong

    I think I need a new identity
    A hotel with more amenities
    Enemies keep me on my toes
    That’s why I gotta wear my new clothes

    If I could overrule the voices 
    In my head making choices
    Maybe then I could escape
    A life spent in a dream state

    I Want It Free

    by Johnny & Jesse Kongos

    Hands up, get on up
    We are all one of a kind
    But time’s up, so don’t get up
    You’re too late to be the first in line
    Put your hands up, if you round up
    Out of ten we're at least a nine
    But time’s up, and I fucked up
    Twelve of me for less than a dime

    Hey now, get up and get it, before it’s too
    Late now, get up and get it, you don’t have to
    Wait now, you can have it all if you just
    Say, I want it now, I want it free

    Hands up, get on up
    Don’t you wanna know what’s on my mind?
    But time’s up, so don’t get up
    I was sure I was one of a kind
    Put your hands up, I give up
    I was looking for a place to hide
    But time’s up, and I fucked up
    Now I’m staring at the great divide

    I had a dream the other night
    Where I could see my name in lights
    But every time I get close it starts to fade away

    From Tokyo to Bogota
    All the girls say aha
    And I'd be lying if I told you I could walk away

    I had a dream the other night
    Where I could see my name in lights
    But every time I get close it starts to fade away

    From Shanghai to Omaha
    All the girls say aha
    And you'd be lying if you told me you could walk away

    The World Would Run Better

    by Danny Kongos

    We talked it over
    And I guess I thought I was all right
    A cup of coffee
    Makes even a heavy thing seem light 

    The world was spinning 
    With the solutions in the palms of our hands
    And I made a list
    Of all the things that I wished to command

    I said…

    I think the ocean has too many waves
    There’s gotta be a way to make it behave
    The world would run better
    If it was run our way 

    Argentina is too far south
    They should move it closer to my house
    The world would run better
    If it was run our way

    I said listen we’re almost unique, we’re one in a billion
    There are only seven of us who share this feeling
    Look how much we’ve already solved over the course of a drink
    I think the next step is to change all the seasons to spring

  • Kongos - Im Only Joking | Live @ JBTV

    4:16

    South African alternative rockers Dylan, Daniel, Jesse, and Johnny all happen to be brothers, and you guessed it- their last name is Kongos. Their band has have been topping charts in South Africa since the original release of their debut album Lunatic (Epic Records) in 2012.

    This has been a great year for the Kongos as they are gaining popularity in the United States. Now the band has re-released the album for American ears which has been propelled into the U.S. alternative charts by singles such as this one called I'm Only Joking. Kongos performed this song live as guests at JBTV Studios in Chicago in front of a packed house. Kongos have channeled an interesting dimension into their music by rocking the accordion, which brings a lot of unique energy to their shows and sets them apart from other bands.

    Lyrics:

    There is a song
    You're trembling to its tune
    At the request of the moon

    Licking her chops, she looks at the lunatics
    She needs another fix

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    Maybe the planets
    Are trying to become the stars
    And we really came from Mars

    The earth is alive
    And man is a parasite
    And heavenly bodies make us fight

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    Wadu-aidu-wadaidu

    There is a song
    You're trembling to its tune
    At the request of the moon

    Licking her chops, she looks at the lunatics
    She needs another fix

    I'm only joking (I'm only joking)
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking? (What are you smoking?)
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    I'm only joking
    I don't believe a thing I've said
    What are you smoking?
    I'm just a-fucking with your head
    Only a crazy little thing I read
    Only a crazy little thing I read

    2 In The Morning

    by Danny Kongos

    Come around 2 in the morning
    When she’s just a distant memory
    Almost from a another century
    You miss her anyway

    Don’t you know we’ve all been there
    Numbing all our senses
    Hoping some substance could prevent this
    But you miss her anyway

    You think…
    Be a man and try to understand
    But you know that you can’t
    Cause you miss her anyway

    All the sad young men
    Who can’t admit it
    When they’ve lost the one thing
    They won’t find again

    Come around 2 in the morning
    All the sad young men performing
    Hoping their youth won’t run out
    Knowing that it will any day

    Don’t you know we’ve all been there
    Thinking we’d found something so rare
    Feeling our life hadn’t treated us fair
    When we lost her anyway

    Autocorrect

    by Jesse Kongos

    In the future
    Will I need my mind?
    Or will Google
    Take over this grind?

    I’m so tired
    Of using my head
    Just wanna be wired
    Directly into this grid

    I wanna get fucked up
    And then hit undo
    Get my head hooked up
    To download some kung fu

    I wanna be free
    Of all responsibility
    I wanna TV
    Right on my retina please

    And if it looks like shit's about to go down
    I don't think twice, it's alright
    And if, and if it looks like I’m about to hit the ground
    I know that I won't pay the price
    I don't care, I don't care if trouble feels like coming around
    Cause I got Autocorrect (for life)
    Autocorrect for life

    So in the future
    Will my attention span
    Hey, in the future
    Think we'll still do it by hand?

    What is happening
    To the length of my thought?
    What is that crackling?
    I think my brain's about to short

    Repeat After Me

    by Johnny Kongos

    Factors of nine, reduced over time
    Chasing them primes, and counting rhymes
    Facing the east, bread without yeast
    Blind faith in the priests, and fear of some beast

    Breaking of bread, eating the dead
    Bowing my head, Gold out of Lead
    Wearing the veil, seeking the grail
    Wall where you wail, and musical scales

    Candles are burned, incantations are learned
    Ashes in urns, and prophets return
    Adam and Eve, three days to grieve
    Stoned if you don't believe, only fuck to conceive

    But it’s so hard to sign my own surrender
    So hard to do what I’ve intended
    So hard to leave what I've defended
    So hard to separate what's blended

    If I could breathe, I’d be free
    And I'd get high, I’d turn water to wine

    If I could be, I’d breathe free at last
    And I'd get high, I’d get so high
    I'd get so high, if I could breathe

    Five sided stars, buried or burned to a char
    Fashion as law, and nailing trinkets to doors
    One hundred and eight, commanded to procreate
    Fasting for forty days, and death if you desecrate

    Two Thousand and Twelve, ringing bells
    Nine circles of hell, division by three
    And seven, you see

    Repeat, repeat after me, repetition is key
    Repeat after me, repetition is key

    Track 10 on 'Lunatic'

    by Jesse Kongos

    Too much information
    People drowning in receipts
    Some days you wanna just chuck it all
    Try your luck and hit the streets

    It's like your shoes are tied together
    Each hand got string attached
    Some nights you wanna just say fuck it
    Maybe you just light a match

    Yeah we all have had those dreams
    O-o-of the sun, and the sea and an island
    Where you switch off
    It's a good life
    It's a good life
    For me

    This modern thing is getting old
    Are we man or (are) we machine
    You always done what you been told
    Kinda like a monkey in a movie scene

    Spend half your life waiting for that light to change
    Just so you can make ends meet
    Everybody always looking for a fight it's insane
    And now you need a pill just to get some sleep

    Yeah...

    If You Could

    by Jesse Kongos

    The day to day gets you feeling down
    It's been a week since you went to town
    It's getting late so why haven't you called your friends
    Why haven't you made amends

    It's not the way that you saw your life
    The one you love, she's not your wife
    You only wanted to make your father proud
    And buy your mom a new house

    If you could do it again
    How would you do it
    Would you go back
    And do what you never got round to

    But you know, yeah you know that's not how it works

    If you could be someone else
    Would you do it
    If you could choose from a shelf
    Would you take a new self

    But you know, yeah you know that's not how it works

    You want to start it all over again, but yeah
    You know that's not how it works

    You could have been a contender, man
    You would have gathered a million fans
    You might have taken a rocket to outer space
    Had in your pocket the human race

    I guess depends on what you expect
    But either way you must accept
    It's hard to stand by and see it all go so fast
    Not easy watching the Heropass

    I Don’t Mind

    by Dylan Kongos

    It’s the start of the night
    Head on my shoulders spinning
    Low light, passing through people
    From room to room, womb to tomb
    Got to reunite and break some bricks like ’86
    And if I lose my mind…

    I don’t mind

    So all the corners are getting crowded
    People and music getting louder
    The place is out of space
    Spilling into the streets
    Just stomp your feet
    And all together close your eyes
    And shout out loud

    I don’t mind

    And I know what I know girl
    But I don’t know what I know when I know it
    And I hear what I hear girl
    But I don’t know what I hear when I hear it
    And I see what I see girl
    But I don’t know what I see when I see it
    And I know what I know girl
    But I don’t know what I know when I know it

    The sun will rise and fall again
    Kick my shoes off and count to ten
    Get this girl closer till we’re touching skin
    Making some space, and if she don’t mind…

    So all the corners are getting crowded
    People and music getting louder
    The place is out of space
    Spilling into the streets
    Just stomp your feet
    And all together close your eyes
    And shout out loud

    I don’t mind

    Look At Me

    by Jesse Kongos

    Look at me - I’ll give you something to see
    I’ll speak free - you got something I need

    I tell my pride - take a seat in the back
    But there’s an ego inside - he’s a maniac

    Now I ain’t trying to make a big scene
    But you know me, I gotta see and be seen

    So look at me - Oh Oh
    Look at me
    You got something I need you gotta give it to me
    Look at me - Oh Oh
    Look at me
    You got something I need you gotta give it to me

    HEY
    Now the time has come for a yay or a nay
    Like the moon and the sun each gets half the day
    Day and night we play this game
    I’m a free man at dawn, at dusk your slave
    Slave to the need, the push and the pull
    I need you gone but I want you to stay
    Stay for the night, leave with the light
    I need you gone but I want you to stay…

    Another day gone by - me dreaming I’m free
    But I can’t stop buying what you’re selling to me
    I say I don’t care just what you think
    But yeah you know me, I say it all with a wink

    So look at me…

    HEY
    Now the time has come for a yay or a nay
    Like the moon and the sun each gets half the day
    Day and night we play this game
    With the dark and the light, the push and the pull
    I’m free at dawn, at dusk your slave
    I need you gone but I want you to stay…

    LYRICS

    Come with me now
    Come with me now
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    Afraid to lose control
    Caught up in this world
    I've wasted time, I've wasted breath
    I think I've thought myself to death
    I was born without this fear
    Now only this seems clear
    I need to move, I need to fight, I need to lose myself tonight
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    I think with my heart and I move with my head
    I open my mouth and it's something I've read
    I've stood at the store before I'm told
    but a part of me knows that I'm growing too old
    Confused what I thought was something I felt
    Confused what I feel with something that's real
    I tried to sell my soul last night
    Funny, you wouldn't even take a bite
    Far away
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Far away
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    Far away
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Don't delay
    I heard him say
    (Come with me now)
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' show you how
    Woah, Come with me now
    I'm gon' take you down
    Woah, Come with me now

    Lyrics:

    Tears are shed, a shame
    I should have known
    I should have thought
    I could have thought
    Before I cast that stone

    The waves radiate far and wide
    There's a ringing in my ears
    For a minute
    I think I'm going blind

    Tears are shed, a shame
    I should have known
    The crown weighs heavy
    Heavy as I sit back in my throne

    I say hey, it wasn't me
    I'm just a pawn
    But the devil's not into details
    Where have all the heroes gone?

    Hey I don't know
    Why don't you tell me?

    The dream is broken
    Now the mind must be woken

    So what are you waiting for
    Tell me what's the hesitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Tell me what is the delay?

    Hey I don't know
    The victor earns the title The Great
    All the mysteries get unlearned
    All the history just becomes a string of dates

    The hordes overrun in a clean sweep
    Destroying everything that was built
    Where's the glory in making mothers weep?

    Hey I don't know

    The dream is broken
    Now the mind must be woken

    So what are you waiting for
    Tell me what's the hesitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Your special invitation?
    What are you waiting for
    Tell me what is the delay?

    Hey I don't know

    The World Would Run Better

    by Danny Kongos

    We talked it over
    And I guess I thought I was all right
    A cup of coffee
    Makes even a heavy thing seem light 

    The world was spinning 
    With the solutions in the palms of our hands
    And I made a list
    Of all the things that I wished to command

    I said…

    I think the ocean has too many waves
    There’s gotta be a way to make it behave
    The world would run better
    If it was run our way 

    Argentina is too far south
    They should move it closer to my house
    The world would run better
    If it was run our way

    I said listen we’re almost unique, we’re one in a billion
    There are only seven of us who share this feeling
    Look how much we’ve already solved over the course of a drink
    I think the next step is to change all the seasons to spring

    Lyrics:

    What's it gonna take
    Are we gonna forever
    Make the same mistake

    I wanna know
    Will you take a stand
    Will you raise a hand
    For your brother's sake

    You talk about the deluge
    You talk about centrifuge
    You got something to prove
    Tell me - who's eyes you gonna use

    And I, yeah I
    What's it gonna take
    And you... yeah you
    What's it gonna be

    I wanna know

    What's it gonna be
    Gotta another theory
    You want me to hear
    Taking your refuge in your reason
    Just to beat the fear
    That we don't know why we're here

    Even cold hard facts
    Have got a way of changing
    Their stripes in the light of a new day
    The world we hold so tight and true
    Turn it on it's head

    And I

    I wanna know

    Living under pretense
    Always on the defense
    Always on the fence
    Tell me, what's it gonna be
