Cold War Kids – Welcome To The Occupation lyrics

Whistle blowers,
Gotta get outta school
They don't want poets
They want pigeons
On a stool

You're examining fossils,
Defending criminals
I'm clock
Watching getting dumb
Photographic models,
A house painted solace
I'm like in the sun

And I give up
Raising your kids America
You treat 'em
Like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details,
Devil's in the details
He's got your gold
Watch and chain
The devil's in the details,
Devil's in the details
He's got your gold
Watch and chain

Whistle blowers,
We know how you feel
Public servants,
Surrender their free will
But you can't ban politics
And work in the circus
You have to choose just one

You hold the nail,
I'll swing the hammer
That's how things get done
And goodbye valedictorians,
Goodbye punks
Goodbye valedictorians,
Goodbye punks

And I give up
Raising your kids America
You treat 'em
Like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details,
The devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch
And chain
The devil's in the details,
Devil's in the details
Got your gold watch
And chain
