Joke's On You

What joke this is
This world we built to fake our bliss
These leaders that we chose for war
Our world we're burning up to tar

What joke this is
Lovers we kiss
But strangers kiss their lives goodbye
Step on a boat, never get dry

What joke this is
Sentience we miss
Weapons we use, "to make things right"
Lose every war, win every fight

What joke this is

All things we build by tearing down
No thing repaired makes it to town
All for themselves
Except for you

You're a bad joke
Laughing your guilt away
