War From A Harlots Mouth – C.G.B. Spender lyrics

If people were to know the things I know
It would all fall apart
They will never know the truth

They are coming for us
The course of human history
Will be set by an unknown man

Men can never be free
Because they're corrupt
Worthless and weak

They believe in authority
If the project's to go forward
They must never believe any differently

We must never believe any differently

I am the orphan
Yes, I am the one
I am the black-lunged son

I'm the arch enemy
Who killed jfk?

Anyone who can appease a man's conscience
Can take his freedom away
Reduce religion to science
Make no greater explanation exist for him

You will believe in authority
No miracle or mystery

How often did I change history?
No monument will bear my name
Nothing vanishes without a trace

And here you are with a gun to my head

    This songs meaning is not in any way mysterious or confusing. It is very cool but quite obvious. The name is a dead give away. This song is a tribute to the 90's american tv drama the x-files which aired on the fox network. A promenent antagonistic character in the show is called 'the ciggarette smoking man'. In one of the later episodes it is revieled that his true name is C. G. B. Spender. Almost every line in this song is a direct quote from C. G. B. In the television show. Those that are not are clearly referencing him.
