Can't We Get Along?

Glimmering lights and the devil is reaching out for my soul
I sit in a darkened room waiting for the world to stop diggin’ a hole

The preacher’s words have all disappeared from my mind
Town streets are empty, am I going blind

Tell me why can’t we get along?
Oh why can’t we get along?

A friend is a friend no matter what in the end of which I can never replace
Love has no measurement of anywhere it’s ever been in time or a place

Lives being thrown away one by one
The planet will evaporate into the sun

Tell me why can’t we get along?
Why can’t we get along?

Could this be our final days?
Draw your guns into ablaze
With all that you’ll ever stand for
Lead me to someplace untouched before
We can still be friends, make amends

Why can’t we get along?
Why can’t we sing-along?
Tell me why oh why oh why has the world gone wrong?
Why can’t we get along?

Get along ...
