I dream of a place that's hedged with roses
With a man in the middle don't talk in riddles
You get hung on every single word
Some call it high, some call it low

And I hear about things you don't want to know
But the truth is still a valuable thing
Don't get caught with your pants down baby
This world the criminal sing

There is another world waiting
But anyone can tell
Anyone can tell
Anyone can tell that I'm not lying

You can hide your face
Pull it into shades
'Cause you can't escape the lie forever
I dream of a place that's overrun by children

And the lord is in the kitchen
Do your work and you'll get your rewards
'Cause what you are is all that really matters
What is left you can easily scatter

On the ground a head covered in mud
Don't step on my principles baby
In spite of what you have done
One day you will have the wisdom

I will tell you
Everything straight
Anyone can tell that I'm not lying
You can hide your face

You can change your shape
'Cause you can escape the lie forever
Anyone can tell
Anyone can tell
