lyrics

Build a man out of wax
and relax
cause’ he’s got your back
and no one will pull
a trigger on you
the blood and sweat that you put in
but won’t come out
open the other door you’ll
find another crowd
but don’t forget that you have yet to
include
those next to you

(Chorus)
And those strange old things
that you think won’t last
so you never had to ask
how they got this way

and those strange old things
that you think won’t last
so you never had to ask

Hey you livin’ like a sane fool
sittin’ at the table
with the hand that holds you
and feeds your weakness
it’s kinda hard to be impressed
by a fortress of distress
drowning in the excess
but ya say that I’m mistaken
I must be mistaken oh ya
I, should have paid attention
wanna pay attention
hold myself ransom play dumb
and stare at the sun

kill a man with your hands
cause’ ya know that you’re in command
and no one will lay a finger
on you
you could succeed
in all your corporate greed
unless the wilful can unite
and stand true

(Chorus)
And those strange old things
that you think won’t last
so you never had to ask
how they got this way

and those strange old things
that you think won’t last
so you never had to ask

Hey you livin’ like an angel
fallen from the steeple
down upon the people
you feed your bullshit
it’s really hard to be impressed
by a fortress of distress
drowning in the excess
but ya say that I’m mistaken
I must be mistaken oh ya
I, should have paid attention
wanna pay attention
hold myself ransom, play dumb
and stare at the sun
stare at the sun
stare at the sun
