Who are these people that keep telling those lies?
And how did these people get control of our lives
And who started the violence 'cause it's out of control
Make them stop

Who are these people that destroy everything?
And sell off the future for whatever it brings
And what kind of leaders can't admit when they're wrong
Make them stop

This stupid mess we own just keeps getting worse
So many people die indeed in sin
Looks like these lies will inherit the earth
Even pretending to pray and getting away with it

Who are these people that keep telling us lies?
And how did these people get control of our lives
And who started the violence 'cause it's out of control
We got to make them stop

Who are these people that keep telling us lies?
And how did these people get control of our lives
And who started the violence 'cause it's out of control
Make them stop

See things really have to change or we're all fucked
