lyrics

All is fine,
Pushing pencils all day long to
Wave the signs,
You know they'll sing your state-appointed
Lullabies,
Your desk is wearing thin beneath the
army lines.

blood-shot eyes,
staring at the ignorance its
no surprise,
You're all so damn predictable for
all the lies,
the truth is never far from where the
bullet flies.

And all bets are off,
And all bets are off,
And all bets are off,
again.

Puppeteer,
blame the doll that hung itself
and they believe,
everything you tell them in those
filtered ears,
And change is just a ripple
in a sea of years.

Shake your hand,
The fear gives you the feeling that
you're in command,
Give the boys to die so you can
Take the land,
'cause human flesh weighs less than
all that golden sand.

And all bets are off,
And all bets are off,
And all bets are off,
again.

Show them, young patriot,
Show them no mercy,
Follow, young diplomat,
Follow your leader,
Don't look young citizen,
Don't look around you,
Go on you idiot,
Fight for my country.
