Go Away

  • What is the point of suffering?
    What is the purpose of joy?
    Is it true that the winner dies
    With the most toys?

    A lifetime spent for a dollar
    A lifetime twisting in pain
    A lifetime gone in an hour
    A lifetime playing the game

    I see the starving Africans on TV
    I feel it has nothing to do with me
    I sent my twenty dollars to live aid
    I've aided my guilty conscience to go away

    Now go away
    Now go away
    Now go away
    Go away

    I don't want anybody to touch me
    I think everybody has aids
    What's the point in caring for you?
    You're gonna die anyway

    A lifetime searching for something
    A lifetime going insane
    A lifetime running from nothing
    A life looking for someone to blame

    I see the starving Africans on TV
    I feel it has nothing to do with me
    I sent my twenty dollars to live aid
    I've aided my guilty conscience to go away

    Now go away
    Now go away
    Now go away
    Go away

    I see the starving Africans on TV
    I feel it has nothing to do with me
    I sent my twenty dollars to live aid
    And paid my guilty conscience to go away

    I see the starving Africans on TV
    I feel it has nothing to do with me
    I sent my twenty dollars to live aid
    And paid my guilty conscience

    Now go away
    Now go away
    Now go away
    Now go away, go away, go awayWriter/s: Gregory A. Hawkes, Ric Ocasek
