the riots they erupt,
the tempers they flare.
leaders shrug their shoulders,
throw their hands up in the air.

theres scandals in the government,
exile in the street.
sorrow on the road sides,
cops on the beat.

the problems of the masses,
outweigh those of the few.
they're all looking for someone to blame,
and it looks like it's gonna be you.

looking back, you see that,
it was all carelessness.
just sat back and ignored it,
didn't think it would come to this.

you accept that it's all your fault,
and live with the consequence.
searching for words, can't find anything,
to say in your defense.

I never would've thought a man,
so shy and oh so frail.
could do so much wrong in the world,
on such a large scale.

too wordy for me, sorry for editing it but i just thought you might want suggestions.
Pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the f***ing car.
I love pulp...
Someone told me there's a girl out there
With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair...

I will find this girl.

I liked it. I'd like to hear it with a guitar accopmaniment, but as far as the lyrics themselves go, I thought they were very good.
