Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
You can't fight a war with nobody to fight back
But if we get to digging to the bottom of the stack
We'll sell it to the youth
and you never know, maybe
You'll get back home and you'll see your baby, oh

[Break]
We'll just act like we care

[Verse 2]
All we're needing is a reason
It don't need to be clear

Singing songs to the news
It can play to their fears

Someone's got to die and you don't have to love him
But the military's still got more in its budget, oh

[Break]
We always need more next year

[Chorus]
No one cares about the waves
At the bottom of the ocean

And at the bottom of the ocean
It's always blue

No one will remember
Cause nothing lasts forever
And everybody's looking
For somebody to use

[Verse 3]
When you don't bring them home and the war hasn't ended
There's still money there and that money needs spending
The powers that be, we got to do what we do
If they never know it than they'll never feel used, oh
Like I often do

To all the pretty girls out there looking for heartache
Crying, "All I wanted is to be your baby"
And all the pretty girls out there living with heartache
Crying cause they're never going to see their baby, oh

We just act like we care

[Chorus]

[Outro]
No one will remember
Cause nothing lasts forever
The world is always changing
And it's always blue
And it's always blue
