    Superman was killed in Dallas
    There's no love left in the palace
    Someone took the Beatles' lead guitar
    Have another Chivas Regal
    You're 12 years old and sex is legal
    Your parents don't know where or who you are

    Used to be the hero of the ballgame
    Took the time to shake the loser's hand
    Used to be that failure only meant you didn't try
    In a world where people gave a damn

    Great big wars in little places
    Look at all those frightened faces
    But don't come here, we just don't have the room
    Love thy neighbours wife and daughter
    Cleanse your life with Holy water
    We don't need to bathe, we've got perfume

    Used to be a knight in shining armour
    Didn't have to own a shiny car
    Dignity and courage were the measure of a man
    Not the drugs he needs to hide the scar

    Can your teacher read, does your preacher pray
    Does your president have soul
    Have you heard a real good ethnic joke today
    Mama took to speed and daddy ran away
    But you mustn't lose control
    Let's cut the class, I got some grass
    The kids are wild we just can't tame 'em
    Do we have the right to blame them

    We fed them all our indecisions
    We wrecked their minds with television
    But what the hell, they're too young to feel pain
    But I believe that love can save tomorrow
    Believe the truth can make us free
    Someone tried to say it, then we nailed Him to a cross
    I guess it's still the way it used to be
