We took a vow in summertime
Now we find ourselves in late December
I believe that New Year’s Eve
Will be the perfect time
For their great surrender
But they don’t remember

Anger wants a voice
Voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize
Till they can’t hear anything
Thought that I was free
From all that questioning
But every time a problem ends
Another one begins

And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die

Within the halls of power lies
A nervous heart that beats
Like a Young Pretender’s
Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
The shameful crooked hands
Of a money lender
'Cause I still remember

Anger wants a voice
Voices wanna sing
Singers harmonize
Till they can’t hear anything
Thought that I was free
From all that questioning
But every time a problem ends
Another one begins

And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die

And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die

I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die
And the stone walls of Harmony Hall bear witness
Anybody with a worried mind can never forgive the sight
Of wicked snakes inside a place you thought was dignified
I don’t wanna live like this, but I don’t wanna die
