God Control

  • Everybody knows the damn truth
    Our nation lied, we lost respect
    When we wake up, what can we do?
    Get the kids ready, take them to school
    Everybody knows they don't have a chance
    To get a decent job, to have a normal life
    When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh
    They pretend to help, it makes me laugh
    I think I understand why people get a gun
    I think I understand why we all give up
    Every day they have a kind of victory
    Blood of innocence, spread everywhere
    They say that we need love
    But we need more than this

    We lost God control
    We lost God control
    We lost God control
    We lost God control

    This is your wake-up call
    I'm like your nightmare
    I'm here to start your day
    This is your wake-up call
    We don't have to fall
    A new democracy
    God and pornography
    A new democracy

    People think that I'm insane
    The only gun is in my brain
    Each new birth, it gives me hope
    That's why I don't smoke that dope
    Insane people think I am
    Brain inside, my only friend
    Hope it gives me birth each new
    That dope I don't smoke, it's true

    Everybody knows the damn truth
    Everybody knows the damn truth (wake up)
    We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    We need to make up, make up, make up, make up
    Make up, make up, make up, make up, make up, make up
    It's a hustle, yeah
    It's a hustle
    It's a con
    It's a hustle
    It's a weird kind of energy
    A bizarre thing that happens to be
    An abnormal fraternity
    And I feel more than sympathy

    We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    We need to make up, make up, make up, make up
    Make up, make up, make up, make up, make up, make up

    People think that I'm insane
    The only gun is in my brain
    Each new birth, it gives me hope
    That's why I don't smoke that dope
    Insane people think I am
    Brain inside, my only friend
    Hope it gives me birth each new
    That dope I don't smoke, it's true

    Everybody knows the damn truth
    Everybody knows the damn truth
    We need to wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    (Wake up)
    (Ah)

    A new democracy!

    Everybody knows the damn truth
    Our nation lied, we've lost respect
    When we wake up, what can we do?
    Get the kids ready, take them to school
    Everybody knows they don't have a chance
    Get a decent job, have a normal life
    When they talk reform, it makes me laugh
    They pretend to help, it makes me laugh

    (We lost God control)
    (We lost God control)
    (We lost God control)
    (We lost God control)
    (We lost God control)
