Geneva

So I throw my best intentions out the window, here we go again
I cannot stand by, and turn a blind eye
 
Not with all this flak ascending, how can I bite my tongue and count to ten?
When you can't see the flag of Geneva
 
Geneva, I call your name in vain
Can't you see how the fools have changed the game
They threw you out and slammed the door
And with you gone there is no justice anymore
 
You think that it's in my heart to savor victory that an ambush brings?
Well, you don't know me, that's what it shows me
 
Cause even with the bullets flying I could never say the meanest thing
Nowhere near it, but still you hear it

Geneva, I call your name in vain
Can't you see how the fools have changed the game
They threw you out and slammed the door
And with you gone there is no justice anymore

Until we get our treaty signed
I get no sleep or peace of mind
  
Geneva...
Can't you see how the fools have changed the game
I don't know what we're fighting for
But with you gone there is no justice...

Now all is fair in love and war
With you gone...

Geneva...
