New Day Dawning

We say donīt show your guns
If you donīt intend to fight
We say donīt sleep all day
If you canīt keep awake at night
Donīt screw it up
Donīt be a hero
īCause we donīt need them
Be a panther or a poet
Someone to light the beacon

And I wonder
Is a new day dawning?
And I wonder, is it around the corner?
I wonder, are the fighting men
still fighting men?
Do they go on and on and on?

Prepare to lose
Prepare to harden to distress
This ainīt your system
Youīre just second-generation business
So donīt screw it up
Donīt be a hero
īCause we donīt need them
No political immunity
To save your position

And I wonder, is a new day dawning?
And I wonder, is it around the corner?
I wonder, are the fighting men
still fighting men?
Do they go on and on and on?

You canīt relax
Just īcause youīre socially secure
If youīve forgot what youīre fighting for
We could effect a cause
So donīt screw it up
Donīt be a hero
īCause we donīt need them
Frustration is the speed of the people
And they let it lead them
