Save the bears, save the whales
What does that entail?
Sign me up for whatever won’t be sending me junk mail
Children are crying out in the streets
But keep those wailing faces away from me

Send me a profile and photo in a letter
White Christmas card proves our holidays are better
Much too busy to find out what the cause is
And I’m getting too old for lost causes

Hand blank cheques to the strangers with the clipboard
Just to show our neighbors exactly what we can afford
Watch the monkeys playing with their waste
While thanking the lord that you weren’t born a beast

Take a shower and wash away the world
Scrub your dirty fingers till the water runs cold
Much too tired to find out what the cause is
And I’m getting too old for lost causes

Colonize, imperialize, let misguided souls be
Pointed in the path of the convert zombies
Fill all their empty hearts with fire
Then hose them all down with holy water

Fly across the world to gaze and gawk
So you can tell the story of your culture shock
And how you survived those dusty straw houses
And managed to find your lost causes

Lets all go get sold on lost causes
