lyrics

One of her babies is rotting in the sun and the other one was found drowned in the ocean
Her mom and dad are in their van crushed and bloated and her husband was thrown from his fishing boat
So please give me a break from all your complaining about who was mean to you and how your stepdad is a pain
- I care, I swear, but I just can't take it, not today
All I can think about are tsunamis and earthquakes

Everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone,
Everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone,
The only reason she's alive is she grabbed a palm frond, and held on
And held on

You can call me crazy but it seems to me we could have sent more than we spend in one day killing Iraqis
To help the hundreds of thousands who are injured and diseased and hungry and homeless and without families
I'm appalled by our government's initial reaction and the fact that they asked for a verbal retraction
From the folks who called them stingy they're just covering their assets
Well they thank their greedy god for wiping out the lower class

Everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
Everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
The only reason she's alive is she grabbed a palm frond, and held on
And held on

One of her babies is rotting in the sun and the other one was found drowned in the ocean
Her mom and dad are in their van they are crushed and bloated and her husband was thrown from his fishing boat
We'd have 12/26 tattoed across our foreheads if something this atrocious happened on our coast instead
Well a tragedy's a tragedy no matter where it happens close your eyes really tight now and try to imagine
That everything you've ever known is gone and everything you've ever loved is gone
And the only reason you're alive is you were lucky and you were strong enough to hold on
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die
While you watched your family die

Everything she's ever known is gone, gone, gone
Everyone she's ever loved is gone, gone, gone
The only reason she's alive is she grabbed a palm frond, and held on
And held on
