Tell me something that I want to hear
Why the finest pump us all with fear
Cause I know something's terribly wrong

Sitting high in their angelic towers
Exchanging reasons for absolute power
And I hope that this doesn't last long

Peasants arrested just for doing favors
Corruption will cease will the arriving savior
Oh when
Could it be me?

Ready for the weekend it goes on and on
The trials of my life in song
But I can't judge a thing, I'm just as phony

Take another drag put all your dreams inside
a paper bag and seal the seams
One step two step and you're looking to score
When out from the bushes comes a shining star.

Why's it me, you spineless twit, is it because
I'm young and self-assured like you used to be?
But I'm so close, I'm only four feet from my trunk
All the time that I got left is just a month.
But they'll take you away, they'll take you away
Tonight's been cut off short by a pig in drag.
