Lyrics

You paint an ugly picture
Of villains in discourse
It’s captioned with your rhetorics
A mirror so deplored

And you lie\
And you smile\
And you lie you lie you lie\
And you smile -

Stand on your golden stage
Feed us the poison that we crave
No fear of taking blame
When the world’s ablaze
You’ll hide on a history page

Where your lies
And your smile
Will haunt the future
Will haunt the future

You felt the anger rising
you cash your check and played the fool
You spoke their dirty language
You well rehearsed joke of the cruel

And you lie\
And you smile\
And you lie you lie you lie\
And you smile -

Stand on your mound of waste
Feed us the shame of our mistakes
The mindless fans the flame
When the world’s ablaze
You’ll hide on a history page

When the world’s ablaze
And the crazies wake
You’ll be hiding on a history page
And the power that you fought to wield
A body stained with blood on a battlefield

Lie lie lie lie
