Shake off the demon
See how the angel run
Pull out the powder
Shoot with an empty gun
Burn down the highway
Leaving no place to run

So many visions to psychoanalyze
Politicians screaming
Their bleeding lies
And all the natural children
Rise on a compromise

[Chorus:]
Oh, lady, open your window
And let that fresh air blow
Let it shake, let it
Shake off your demon
And watch that angel go

Who's that preacher
Talking up the holy way
Singing the glory of
How love fulfills
There's a man in a uniform
Says he wants to teach you to kill

Shake off the demon
See how the angel run
Pull out the powder
Shoot with an empty gun
Burn down the highway
Leaving no place to run

[Repeat chorus]
