World Wide Suicide Lyrics

Words by Vedder

I felt the earth on Monday
It moved beneath my feet
In the form of a morning paper
Laid out for me to see
Saw his face in a color picture
I recognized the name
Could not stop staring at the
Face I’d never see again
It’s a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when
the war is taking over?
It’s the same every day
I heard my name
Why can’t they say that
The world be left to hold her

The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide
The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide

Medals on a wooden mantle
Next to a handsome face
That the President took for granted
Writing checks that others pay
And in all the madness
Thought becomes numb and naive
So much to talk about
And nothing for us to say
It’s the same every day
And the wave won’t break
Tell you to pray while the devil’s on his shoulder
Laying claims to the tainted soldier said
I’m not a quitting
The truth’s already out there

The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide
The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide

Looking in the eyes of the fallen
You’ve got to know there’s another
Another
Another
Another
Another
waaaaayyyyyyyyyyy

It’s a shame to awake in a world of pain
What does it mean when
the war is taking over
It’s the same every day
And the wave won’t break
Tell you to pray while
the devil’s on his shoulder

The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide
The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide
The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suicide
The whole world
World over
It’s World Wide Suiciiiiiiiiiide
