If you want to live forever
Ask a doctor, someone clever
He can put you on or get you off
Of the drug do jour

All you kings and martyrs
All the little girls and boys
Will thank you when you start us
Safely on the way to be Citizen Sane

If you want to make your mind up
Ask a preacher where you'll wind up
He can take you in or shut you out
Of the final door

All you kings and martyrs
All the little girls and boys
Will thank you when you start us
Safely on the way to be Citizen Sane

Please may we just switch all our brains on to good from bad?
All we want's the word and we want it now
No way do we want any pain or to feel too sad

If you want to join a mission
Ask the leader for permission
He can put you down or pick you up
Off the killing floor

All you kings and martyrs
All the good little girls and boys
Will thank you when you start us
Safely on the way to be Citizen Sane
