The Winning Side (Bonus Track) lyrics

Well, I admit some mistakes
At least privately in takes
And here's another one
And I'd say it would be okay
But that's a lie, man, I mean, hey
We're all dying young

It's not a wish, although it seems
More like a terrifying dream, I'm serious!
It's either a whiskey or a bong
Or a car crash or a bomb, I'm serious!

It's the only thing I think
When I wake up in my bed
And my stomach churns as these pages turn
Is the world burning
Or is it only in my head?

On a screen on a TV
On a scene in front of me
With all the white noise and the static
And the static and the screams
This is war, this is death
This has really been a bet
On the winning side, the winning side
The winning side, the winning side...

And I'm sitting on the train
Over Brooklyn in the rain
All by myself
When the thought occurs to me
That all these people wanna be
Just somewhere else

Like every day is just a loss
Spent arguing with your boss
Over a coffee break
Well, the same is true for me
I mean, one more indignity
And I'm going to break

Because the only thing I think
When he walks out on the screen
He says the sky falls and the duty calls, man
And it takes some balls to be so obscene

On a screen on a TV
On a scene in front of me
With all the white noise and the static
And the static and the screams
This is war, this is death
This has really been a bet
On the winning side, the winning side
The winning side, the winning side

The right side, the right side
Well, they shipped you off
And your parents cried
It all falls away so quietly
When you wake up to reality
Reality, what's reality?
What's reality? What's reality?
It's a f***ing play!

Well, I've got a brother in Iraq
I've got no way to get him back
Like those people in the sands
Buried in Afghanistan
I've got a child in a crib
I've got a father in a bib
I've got no pills, I've got no skills
I got no idea what I did

I just wonder every second
Every minute that passes by
Are we dreaming? Are we living?
Are we winning where we die?

In a cloud of dust, a mushroom burst
And a series of degradations first
All alone in a hospital bed
Wondering what we might have done instead

With a lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime
A lifetime, a lifetime

(A lifetime, a lifetime)
Well, we paid our dues and we did our time
(A lifetime, a lifetime)
But please, tell me what exactly was our crime
(A lifetime, a lifetime)
Well, I stand and stood by this fallen line
(A lifetime, a lifetime)
While you decide who lives and dies
I hope you choke on all your lies...
