Slow Learner

The lessons of history are a mystery to those who don’t want to know.

They wish, they shut their eyes, they react with surprise.

They speak and believe lies.

So then, when it happens again, they remain mute.

When you’re gonna shoot, shoot.

So they say.

They haven’t gone away.

They live in a land of lets pretend, they drag us along.

Could we have a different tune, another song?

How long, oh Lord, how long?
