Public Image Ltd. – Good Things lyrics

Little white lies, they hold little surprise

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need, I need

Where the arrogance of Presidents drive with the top down
Pop singers bite bullets and Popes kiss the ground
The most favored nations should be Atheists
Not the penny pinch manipulators of the Fundamentalists

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need

For everyone spotted, ten get missed
The deeper you look, the longer the list
And the CNN calling card, Red Herring Day, "No news today"
Somebody somewhere, indirectly directs them on their way
Stand up the token figure and twist whatever they say

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need

Little white lies, they hold little surprise

Pin it on no one, it doesn't matter anyway
How many political despots worked for the USA?
And who controls who, down South America way
And who controls who, the modern Russian way

Death in the streets, death is a project
All in the weak, the poor, the rich, the racist
Free thought should be looked upon as the enemy
Because free thought went to jail, long ago, what a pity

The Spider's Kiss, the White House Astrologists
How many political despots worked for the CIA
The Spider's Kiss, the White House Astrologists, yeah
Fuck, it's the CIA

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need

Good things come in threes
The places I haunt, the powers I taunt
And the little I need

Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes

Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
Good things come in threes
