EMPTY FEELING
(words and music by Rob Dokter) (c)

Now the smoke has cleared and the light's back on in the Persian Gulf today
No more black rain, but beaches with tarry balls that seem to remain
The psychologic damage, the environmental afterpains
that've got the people all around still daily draggin' chains

Nobody knows what kind of illnesses there are to come the next few years
And when some die from some new disease is the world gonna be in tears?
The jeans have claimed the place of the traditional dishdasha-clokes
And somehow it makes me feel empty like i just heard some sick joke

The Al-Sabah clan is on again, the people ride their four wheel drives
But under the ground i don't believe they'll ever stop sharpenin' their knives
And it's still an empty feeling that there might never come an end
to this silly struggle to rule the world withough caring where it's sent

So, let us all hope, we've had the worst part
and the ones in charge will be that smart
to put over the helm onto a calmer sea
and this empty feeling let's us be

The Al-Sabah clan is on again, the people ride their four wheel drives
But under the ground i don't believe they'll ever stop sharpenin' their knives
And it's still an empty feeling that there might never come an end
to this silly struggle to rule the world withough caring where it's sent
