Overthrow - Switchfoot

All our pretty rules
Fairy tales and crowns
Broken on the floor
All our little words
Love and peace and love
Spoken with a sword
We say overthrow the government
Put a new one up instead
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your soul
Tell me how it goes
The one about the war
The war that killed the king
Our hearts are still the same
Stone and ice in steel
Lifeless hollow things
You say overthrow the government
Who will save us from yourself?
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your, yourself, yourself, yourself
Take me down and lock me up
You can't change my head
You can't change my heart
When this old life is done
Will we still be the stubborn souls we always were?
Today is our last chance to turn around, to turn around
Yourself, yourself, yourself
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow
If you can overthrow your soul
