lyrics

Are you pining for… are you pining for old ways.
When the heroes won, when the hero saves the day.
When you wrote the rules and you taught us how to play. It was a better time in a gentler world you made.

You’re sending in the soldiers, sending in the thieves, you just made another enemy.
Well, when we desert you, you’ll know how we feel. You just made a DEVIL out of me.

Get your contracts signed so the dirty hands get paid… because no one’s safe from the waste that you have laid.

You’re sending in the soldiers, sending in the thieves, you just made another enemy.
Well, when we desert you, you’ll know how we feel. You just made a DEVIL out of me.

Black or white… all or nothing. The truth is unkind but not as unkind as your secrecy. You can’t cover our eyes, our eyes, they see and they know.

You’re sending in the soldiers, sending in the thieves, you’ve just made another enemy.

Thank you corporate welfare, thank you sacred greed… you’ve just made a DEVIL out of me.
