lyrics

check out and cash in at the door
shadow government has the floor
everybody here knows the score
doesn’t matter
as long as they
as long as they
as long as they
want more
violence is the currency
blood is wine for the corporate leech
and the veins are open on broken streets
doesn’t matter
don’t matter
don’t matter
don’t matter
what you believe

Always
there’s a motive,
at the heart and at the cente,
of the game we’re forced to play
murder
all the messengers
and tell the world exactly
what you wanted them to say

Accusations are
deliberately absurd
finally you’ve got
a way to start a war.

what with the profits set too high to let go
a city skyline will be laid low
all the swiss accounts are bound to explode
and it’s over
it’s over
whenever
whenever they say so
silent ones will watch this unfold
a story book memorized and retold
victory written omitting what’s true
they package
produce it
confuse it
play it on the radio

it’s deliberately absurd
finally you’ve got
a way to start a war

Shut off the lights
let the world sleep
shut down the lights
let them all sleep

an idea we let grow
wicked it may seem
passive eyes
harbor deeper schemes
the list of names is longer than
the monuments that stand overhead
If you hear your number called
find your place on the battlefield
lying dead without a name
is what you owe for the life you saved

Tell me what’s it worth
finally you’ve got
a way to start a war
accusations are
everything you need
doesn’t matter what they know
just what they believe

shut off the lights
let the world sleep
shut off the lights
let the world
you let the world sleep
