Angry Young Man

A loon cries out across silent lake
Full moon hangs in the sky
A funeral pyre will light the night
Pay homage to mankind

The moment before all time ends
The world will stop to listen
I'll play the roll of the angry young man
If you'd only stop to listen

If death and destruction the name of the game
Its a game that we've won long ago
And yet we persist and we'll play to the end
And claim that we're fighting for freedom

Its all fine if the guilty pay for their crimes
But innocence pays a high price
Except for the names and a few other changes
No one listens


[1st chorus]

If you'd only stop to listen
If you'd only stop to listen
