"Sign '☮' The Times"
N France a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle & soon she did the same
At home there R 17-year-old boys & their idea of fun
Is bein' N a gang called "The Disciples"
High on crack & totin' a machine gun
Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church & killed every1 inside
U turn on the telly & every other story is tellin' U somebody died
My sister killed her baby cuz she couldn't afford 2 feed
& yet were sending people 2 the moon
N September my cousin tried reefer 4 the very 1st time
Now he's doin' horse - it's June
It's silly, no?
When a rocket ship explodes & everybody still wants 2 fly
But some say a man ain't happy unless a man truly dies
Baby make a speech, star wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if a night falls & a bomb falls
Will anybody C the dawn?
Time, mm, times
Is it silly, no?
When a rocket blows & everybody still wants 2 fly
Some say a man ain't happy, truly
Until a man truly dies
Oh Y, oh Y?
Sign of the times
Sign of the times mess with ur mind
Hurry b4 it's 2 late
Let's fall N love, get married & have a baby
We'll call him Nate
If it's a boy
