lyrics

Kings of convenience, bastards of commerce
Ignorance bliss and Greed is your brother
A war-torn foreign land, preaching peace there you stand
a bible in one hand and a gun in the other

‘Cause the god of the rich man don't listen to poor sins
put god in the middle and see who's left standing
But live in defiance in the den of the lions
a crowded alliance just standing there waiting

Oh, those dreams deferred
Promises stuck in your throat
do they ever get to be heard
or do they explode?

Broken disheartened, we're living like targets
becoming all victims to the rules that we live by
Let’s give ourselves a raise and give the corporate church the tax breaks
It's decadent and depraved and it's understood

that they're keeping us numb and we're raising the dumb
Giving up all our secrets a lock at a time
They can make us cower from ivory towers
Their abuse of power comes as no surprise

Oh, those dreams deferred
Promises stuck in our throats
do they ever get heard?
Do they explode?

Oh, those dreams deferred
Promises stuck in our throats
do they ever get heard?
Do they explode?

Nothing comes from
Nothing changes if
Nothing is questioned then
Nothing is sacred
