Captivate, cultivate, relegate and chalk it up to the basic needs
Dissipate, isolate, these days you can't run or believe
All that you read
And all the kids with the down-low brainwaves
Holding up signs saying "guns kill, gods saves"
And all in the form of the faceless news cast
Commercials that say live well but die fast

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no

Calculate, consecrate, elevate it, give it up to reality
Distillate, venerate, these days you can't feel or conceive
All that you see
And all the kids with the soundbyte slave chains
Choking up lines playing who's-who mind games
All in the spell of the speechless redress
Commercials that say take more but give less

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no

Consummate keepers of many left wondering
Desolate dreamers with heads caught up in the sway
Obstinate heeders of organized ignorance
Making up rules for the mute and the willing
But all the kids that are raised in the free-fall
And from the silence of a pacified strip mall
They pay the wage with the dollars of gravity
On their bedside, oh, my conscience calls to me

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no

Even if you wanted to
Even if you could, oh-oh
You can't say no
