See the devil on the doorstep now
My oh my
Telling everybody don't just have to live their lives
Sliding down the information highway
Buying them just like a bunch of fools
Time is tickin' and we can't go back
My oh my

What about the world today
What about the place that we called home
We've never been so many
And we've never been so alone

(Chorus)
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands, you come out clean
You failed to recognise the enemy's within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are

One step forward making two steps back
My oh my
Riding piggy on the bad boys back for life
Lining up for the grand illusion
No answers for the questions asked
Lining up for the execution
Without knowing why

(Chorus)
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands you come out clean
You failed to recognise the enemy's within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are

It's all about power
By takin' control
Breaking the rules
Breaking the soul
They suck us dry till there's nothing left
My oh my, my oh my

What about the world today
What about the place that we called home
We' ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone
So alone!

(Chorus)
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands you come out clean
You failed to recognise the enemy's within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are

It's all about power (we are)
By takin' control (we are)
Breaking the rules (we are, we are)
Breaking the soul (we are)
They suck us dry till there's nothing left (we are, we are)
My oh my, my oh my

We are
We are (its all )
We are
We are, we are (take control)
We are
We are
It's all about power
By takin' control
