It just takes a minute
And you'll feel no pain
Gotta make something of your life boy
Give me one more vein
Youve come to see the doctor
Cause I'll show you the cure
Im gonna take away the questions
Yeah Im gonna make you sure

A hit man for the order
When you couldnt go to school
Had a skin job for a hair-do
Yeah you looked pretty cool
Had a habit doing mainline
Watch the dragon burn
No regrets, youve got no goals
Nothing more to learn

Now I know you wont refuse
Because weve got so much to do
And youve got nothing more to lose
So take this number and welcome to

Operation : mindcrime
Were an underground revolution
Working overtime
Operation : mindcrime
There's a job for you in
The system boy, with nothing to sign

Hey nikki you know everything
That there is to do
Heres a gun take it home
Wait by the phone
Well send someone over
To bring you what you need
Youre a one man death machine
Make this city bleed

Now I know you wont refuse
Because weve got so much to do
And youve got nothing more to lose
So take this number and welcome to

Operation : mindcrime
Were an underground revolution
Working overtime
Operation : mindcrime
There's a job for you in
The system boy, with nothing to sign

Operation : mindcrime
Were an underground revolution
Working overtime
Operation : mindcrime
If you come to see the doctor
Yeah hell give you the cure

Operation : mindcrime
Make something of your life boy
Let me into your mind
Operation : mindcrime
There's a job for you in the system boy
With nothing to sign

    No it's not, you dumb twat. It's about a man named nikki who, as a herion addict, was manipulated into joining a revolutionist group as an assassin. He fell in love with a nun from a corrupt church, was ordered to kill her, and left the order with her to save her. She was killed and he was blamed for her death. He was put in an asylum for his insanity. The album is circular; the end takes you back to the beginning.
