The movie ran through me, the glamor subdue me
The tabloid untie me, I'm empty, please fill me
Mister anchor assure me that Baghdad is burning
Your voice, it is so soothing that cunning mantra of killing
I need you my witness to dress this up so bloodless

To numb me and purge me now of thoughts of blaming you
Yes, the car is our wheelchair, my witness your coughing
Oily silence mocks the legless who travel now in coffins
On the corner the jury's sleepless
We found your weakness and it's right outside your door

Now testify, now testify
It's right outside your door
Testify, now testify

With precision you feed me, my witness I'm hungry
Your temple, it calms me so I can carry on
My slaving sweating the skin right off my bones
On a bed of fire I'm choking on the smoke that fills my home

The wrecking ball is rushing, witness your blushing
The pipeline is gushing while here we lie in tombs
While on the corner the jury's sleepless
We found your weakness and it's right outside your door

Now testify, now testify
It's right outside your door
Now testify, now testify

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set

Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now controls the past
Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now?

Now testify, now testify
It's right outside your door
Testify, now testify
The war is right outside your door
