 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

You're just toy soldiers and fence makers, tax payers and swimming pool tenders
You take the blame for everything and you're never gonna win 

And you know that the institute's debased

These motherfuckers can't believe their dumb luck
The fairytale keeps going
You keep lapping it up
Princes and perverts with dark things in their past
Saints that sin and stolen works of art
Vampires in the mainstream slicing up the pie
Chandeliers for fingers golden bible eyes

And you know that the institute's debased

Odin, Allah, JC and Ra drive around the cosmos in a jewel encrusted car
Argue about who's got the biggest churches, who spilt the most blood, whose balls are the biggest
""What if they realise the story's all the same?""
But they keep falling like moths to the flame 

And you know that the institute's debased

You're just spongers and loungers, scumbags and scroungers, pharaohs and sun kings, gangsters and bad things 
With your slice of the pie, the kick in the eye
Alone in the penthouse picking at your stitches 
Flunkies and junkies and hustlers and witches

And you know that the institute's debased

And the furious flames will remember your names
And the weak and the poor will not need you no more 
And these gods that you made will fade from the shade
All of their lies and crimes decayed,
The bible, the Koran, the bureaucrats
Put us in shackles while they wore their stupid hats

You know that the institute's debased
I know the institute's, you know the institute's, they know the institute's debased
Let it go what you don't know 
The institute's debased
