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.

PIL / Don’t Ask Me

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 oughta 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 dong, 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
What’s it all about they scream and then they shout?
Don’t blame me, I told you so

You 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, the 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?
Don’t blame me, I told you so
