Tom MacDonald – How The West Was Won

[Verse 1]
I woke up last night in the living room
Left the TV on, fell asleep to the news
I’ve become numb to the violence, I cannot hear no more cryin’
Or sirens or stories ’bout Paris or terrorist threats to the country where I live
Buncha politicians steady lying on the TV still
Buncha young mo’fuckers fightin’ with the police and the police kill
Buncha students gettin’ killed in an air strike, no one even care like
I wonder if they taught ’em that they’d never win a fair fight

[Pre-Chorus]
Huh, how the west was won
How the west was won
How the west was won
How the west was won

[Chorus]
Oh, when the lights go out, maybe then we’ll see
When the lights go out, maybe that’s what we need
When the lights go out and the job gets done
Maybe that will be-be, be, be how the west was won

[Verse 2]
Had a drink last night while the city burned
That I been to twice, but it didn’t hurt
The images didn’t seem real, I’m too far to feel
The fear and the anger and hatred and no one that I know got killed, I sat there and chilled
Too many pictures of people that died way too young
Too many bombings for me to keep up with, remember when there was none
Too many dead for my tears, too many lost for my love
Too many cry for my ears, how the west was won

[Pre-Chorus]
How the west was won
How the west was won
How the west was won
How the west was won

[Bridge]
I woke up last night in the living room
Left the TV on, fell asleep to the new new news
I’ve become numb to the violence, I cannot hear no more cryin’
Or sirens or stories ’bout Paris or terrorist threats to the country where I live

[Chorus]
When the lights go out, maybe then we’ll see
When the lights go out, maybe that’s what we need
When the lights go out and the job gets done
Maybe that will be be be be how the west was won
