  • This is the voice of God
    You've got it, you've got it
    Stay in and lock your doors

    I don't care what you've achieved
    There's only one location if you don't follow me
    (You always get what you wanted)
    You're gonna burn in a blistering furnace
    From now until forever, no matter how it ends
    (You always get what you wanted)

    Halt, freeze, who goes there?
    Do you have the right, do you have the right documentation?
    Stop, wait, this ain't right
    This is fraudulent, this is counterfeit, you're a hoodwinker, sir

    This is the voice of God
    The shrinkwrapper of minds
    Stay in, lock your doors

    Halt, freeze, who goes there?
    Do you have the right, do you have the right documentation?

    Halt, freeze, who goes there?
    Do you have the right, do you have the right documentation?
    Stop, wait, this ain't right
    This is fraudulent, this is counterfeit, you're a hoodwinker, sir

    I don't care if you're devout
    To the three thousand
    Other gods
    I'm the ace that breaks the spade
    Hostile to liberty
    Burning books
    It's mental captivity

    It's a swindle for your soul
    It's a swindle for your soul
    It's a swindle for your soul (you always get what you wanted)
    For your soul

    It's a swindle for your soul
    It's a swindle for your soul
    It's a swindle for your soul (you always get what you wanted)
    For your soul

    Halt, freeze, who goes there?
    Do you have the right, do you have the right documentation?
    Stop, wait, this ain't right
    This is fraudulent, this is counterfeit, you're a hoodwinker, sir

    You are a hoodwinker, sir
    What do you take me for, a fool?
