    Lyrics:

    We took a vow in summertime
    Now we find ourselves in late December

    I believe that New Year’s Eve
    Will be the perfect time
    For their great surrender

    But they don’t remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    Til they can’t hear anything
    I thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall
    Bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind
    Could never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes
    Inside a place
    You thought was dignified

    I don’t wanna live like this
    But I don’t wanna die

    Within the halls of power lies
    A nervous heart that beats
    Like a Young Pretender’s

    Beneath these velvet gloves I hide
    The shameful, crooked hands
    Of a moneylender
    Cuz I still remember

    Anger wants a voice
    Voices wanna sing
    Singers harmonize
    Til they can’t hear anything
    I thought that I was free
    From all that questioning
    But every time a problem ends
    Another one begins

    And the stone walls of Harmony Hall
    Bear witness
    Anybody with a worried mind
    Could never forgive the sight
    Of wicked snakes
    Inside a place
    You thought was dignified

    I don’t wanna live like this
    But I don’t wanna die

        I've just realised after several weeks that the line is "the stone walls of HARMONY HALL bear witness" rather than "the stone walls vomited on their witness"

          Imagine being a bug and thinking “I don’t want to live like this but I don’t want to die”?

                              Anyone else get a serious Grateful Dead vibe starting around 45 or 50 seconds in with the line "Anger wants a voice" and then boom! Full on Dead trip takes over esp in the choruses, instrumental parts and solos. Can't you just hear Jerry Garcia singing "I don't want to live like this but I don't wanna die"?

                                      "I don't want to live like this, but I don't want to die." - perhaps the most profound lyric I've heard in a long time.
