I wonder for the people who Have no one else to tell them How else can anybody see A meaning that's not absurd My word! A secret for the government A secret for the mobsters And then the press is asking your guests What gossip has anyone heard The truth is only half as true As they would have it be 'Cause when they sell you their bullshit They're not talking for free I wonder what anyone else would say If facts were theirs to see But who would sponsor campaigns and heists If everyone had the key A secret kept is used by fools To hide a place for naught But R+D and sympathy Will have your scheming bought They'd rather own a piece of it Who cares if it works or not Just don't you let the other guy Think what you have's not sought I know you'd keep a promise that's As dear as family But could you love your brother as Much as your bribery Or do you think it's justified Because it's salaried Or better yet, a better bet A bonus, yours scot-free Those who give their word to god And tell us they speak true Don't refrain from dragging faith Through everything they do As they invoke a cause, from war To ignorance, as virtue And watch the voters and promoters Say it's god's work they do
