Comic Relief In Wartime

In most every scene
There are wars happening upon the screen
It’s a nightmare
But we laugh about it now
And that’s for the kids
Well they need cute animals to make sense of it
So we give them Ewoks and Porgs
So they can chill out
But deep down we all know what it’s all about

‘Cause everything’s filled with violence these days
But everyone needs some comic relief
The way we do it glosses on the things that are wrong
Put our rose shades on
And we see our reflections back in the worst ones

Take Tattooine
Where these kids are slaves and never set free
And then later we’ll see Darth Maul get cut in half
But then Jar Jar zaps his tongue so we can all laugh
And again we’ll see more dismemberment in Episode 3
On Mustafar where Vader gets his legs slashed
But hey, he’s a pretty bad guy so it’s alright I guess

‘Cause everything’s filled with violence these days
But everyone needs some comic relief
The way we do it glosses on the things that are wrong
Put our rose shades on
And we see our reflections back in the worst ones
And we see our reflections back in the worst ones

‘Cause everything’s filled with violence these days
But everyone needs some comic relief
The way we do it glosses on the things that are wrong
Put our rose shades on
And we see our reflections back in the worst ones
