New Model Army - Watch and Learn



Monkey see, monkey do
What was it they showed to you
That now you sense betrayal
From a thousand miles away
They took your hand and let it go

Monkey observes and monkey makes
Same old monkey mistakes
3D copies of the weapons to be used
And all the flags are fakes

And the children's eyes are open
And pretty soon they'll take their turn
They will take their turn
They don't say much
But all the while they watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn

They're putting up scaffold in the square
It won't be long before we're all headed there
And the accused will be as guilty as the accusers say
We'll see ourselves and turn away

And the children standing there
And pretty soon they'll take their turn
They will take their turn
They don't say much
But all the while they watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
Monkey thinks, so monkey thinks he knows
So monkey reaps what monkey sows
They took your hand and let it go

And the children's eyes are open
And pretty soon they'll take their turn
They will take their turn
They don't say much
But all the while they watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
They watch and learn
