There is this thing that's like touching, except you don't touch
Back in the day it just went without saying it all
All the world's history gradually dying of shock
There is this thing that's like talking, except you don't talk
You sing, you sing

Sing for the bartender, sing for the janitor, sing
Sing for the cameras, sing for the animals, sing
Sing for the children shooting the children, sing
Sing for the teachers who told you that you couldn't sing
Just sing

There is this thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked
It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance
After the show you cannot sing wherever you want
But for now let's just pretend we're all going to get bombed
So sing

Sing 'cause it's obvious, sing for the astronauts, sing
Sing for the president, sing for the terrorists, sing
Sing for the soccer team, sing for the ganja weed, sing
Sing for the kid with the phone who refuses to sing
Just sing

Life is no cabaret
We don't care what you say
We're inviting you anyway
You motherfuckers, you'll sing someday
You motherfuckers, you'll sing someday
You motherfuckers, you'll sing someday

(Amanda Palmer/The Dresden Dolls - see/hear it here.)
