lyrics

The cannibal chief
He sat me down
To tell me wisdoms 'bout this life
He said "I've eaten damn near 100,000 people
And buddy, they were all alike."

"I don't believe you," I said
"Somebody out there has to sing a song Inever heard before.
I don't believe I will give up 'til I see every wavelength
In someone who believes in more than this."

And then the president's wife
She took me aside and said
"now, hey, I've got some things to say. Did you know,
That 51% of 10% of Americans all think exactly the same way?"

"I don't believe you," I said
"Somebody out there has to sing a song Inever heard before.
I don't believe I will give up 'til I see every wavelength
In someone who believes in more than this."
