Don’t Ask Me / PIL


Don’t Ask Me / PIL
What you gonna do – When the river runs dry
Put your drills in the mud – Death up in the sky
Should have saved those bottles –
Should have saved those cans
Shouldn’t ought’a listen to the plastic man
No more toilet paper – It’s gone just like the trees
Do you like the taste of honey – Isn’t it best without the bees
Be careful what you’re doing – You’re messing up my life
And if all this world’s a cake – Then you took too big a slice

What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout
Don’t ask me – Cause I don’t know (I don’t know)
What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout
Don’t blame me – I told you so

Read it in the papers – You hear it in the news
Very few listen – A spew without a view
And is it really worth it – You’re choking on remote
I see the red tide coming – But we don’t even vote
Infection in the greenhouse – Dizzy in the clouds
Oily as an ocean – Heaven disemboweled
Planning on a future – Well lucky for some
Develop your body – But your mind is still a slum

What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout
Don’t ask me – Cause I don’t know
What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout (Well don’t ask me)
Don’t blame me – I told you so (Middle-age)

The product in the packaging
Of multi-layered glam
150 layers of materials
To cover up a sham
Protecting my planet
Wrap it in plastic
This package is product
Perfected eternal
A crap in a cling wrap
I never met yet a prime minister or president
Who told the truth yet

Swimming in the slurry
Burning in the heat
Wind blown is this weather
I eat what you secrete
I climb this highest derrick
This circus has no prayer
No UFO to save us
And do we really care

What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout (Do we really care)
Don’t ask me – Cause I don’t know
What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout
Don’t blame me – I told you so

What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout (No UFO to save us)
Don’t ask me – Cause I don’t know
What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout (No fun, no religion)
Don’t blame me – I told you so

What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout
Don’t ask me – Cause I don’t know
What’s it all about – They scream and then they shout (Climb this highest derrick)
Don’t blame me – I told you so

Kiss goodbye to the Earth, the sun, the moon
It’s easy to deceive a child.
