(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)

We don't want to tell you
What's been happening
Behind the scenes
It's easier to Sell you
While you're chasing
The American Dream

Just distract you
With stories of Skull and Bones
Feed you Truth enough for you
To bitch and moan about
That Other guy
Your Nine to Five
And all of that jive

(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)

Now, don't misunderstand me
Cuz I'm only tryin' to save you
Even though it's underhanded
Don't ask questions
It's what I must do

So you'll sit there
And dream of a higher life
And take faith in an after life
You can scream
And shake your fists at me
But you're wasting your time

Say you want money
Only see milk and honey
As you search for what you won't find
Freedom ...
... and Salvation;
You'll die

It's been such a long time
That we've been running your life

(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
(Fool you are)
