Lyrics

(Source: One of the Three)

Everybody wants to be happy.
Everybody wants more money.
Everybody wants more loving.
Everybody wants the same things.
I came across the border
Through the east and west divide.
The land between the trenches
Was patrolled by the deaf and the blind.
The blind were shouting, "Listen!"
While the deaf said, "Can't you see?"
Somewhere deep in no-man's land,
Some man has lost a key.
I open up into this mystery,
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
Centuries of fighting,
So I brought myself a gun.
The salesman called it freedom,
So my enemy bought a bigger one.
I'm saving up for a missile
That will shoot him up with love.
Now his finger's on my button
And my hand is in his glove.
I opened up into this mystery.
Every key can lock you up
Or set you free.
I believe that there is magic in this mystery.
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
Everybody wants to be happy.
Everybody wants more money.
Everybody wants the same things.
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
I have seen, I have seen, I have seen.
