Don't you dare
Interupt the white house ball,
Were liveing scared
It's in foriegn fields the soldiers fall
Ooooooh la la la

Snatch em in the prime, go ahead that's fine, that's fine
Just go drill for grease
Like a diamond thief
There mamas will be alright
Just give em time,
Go get you money right
You wont loose no sleep tonight

Nominate your kids I think they'd prove your theory right
Would you watch them die

Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
Coming up with nothing everytime
How come we aint getting any closer
Tryna find the truth behind the lies

Look up look up,
See a dead man walking,
See his baby face
Hey lets duplicate a few,
Oooooh la la la la
That don't mean much to you
If you need some help,
Send some hippys in to help you think more than you do
Hows about another line or two,
To pick you up, pick you up
While your people drown

I hope your happy and you sleep so great at night
While the lovers cry

Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
Coming up with nothing everytime
How come we aint getting any closer
Tryna find the truth behind the lies

Hmmmmm hmmmm hmmm hmmmm
Hmmmm hmmmm hmmmmm hmmmm...

How many lives will you sacrifice,
Will you ever be satisfied
If in god you trust,
Can't you hear him still
I aint no preacher but
Thou shalt not kill

Govermental, confusion
Govermentalist, dilusion
Govermental confusion
A bunch of govermentalist, it's dilusion

Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
Coming up with nothing everytime
How come we aint getting any closer
Tryna find the truth behind the lies

Hmmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmm
Hmmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmmm hmmmm

Govermental, confusion
Govermentalist, dilusion
Govermental confusion
A bunch of govermentalist, it's dilusion

And all that were left with is a hand full of nothing,
Hand full of nothing
That's all that I got
Hand full of nothing

Hmmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmm
Hmmmmmm hmmmmm hmmmmmm hmmmm
