Living in an Age of Lies

Updated: Jul 13

Your lawyer’s a crook

His tailor’s a spook

And the bar staff is out on the lake

The pastor’s on dope

His mistress lost hope

And the air force is back on the take


Hey, we’re living in an age of lies

When hearing the truth’s a surprise

And capitalism becomes a disguise

For the crooks who plan our demise


Howls in the courtroom

Cries from the bedroom

Reporters bee-lined for the hills

Riots in the street

Cops dead on their feet

And new junkies out looking for pills


Hey, we’re living in an age of lies

When hearing the truth’s a surprise

And capitalism becomes a disguise

For the crooks who plan our demise


If the powers of the day

say that truth's in the way

then we better all pray

that we don't let them stay


Lock up your mother

The kids and your brother

And don’t let your servants outdoors

Put cash in a sock

With a key and a lock

Avoid visiting high-rise top floors


Hey, we’re living in an age of lies

When hearing the truth’s a surprise

And capitalism becomes a disguise

For the crooks who plan our demise


Let thinkers discuss

Allow mothers to fuss

And put your firstborn outside to play

Stop bankers who lie

Sunbathers who fry

Have church goers kneel down and pray


Hey, we’re living in an age of lies

When hearing the truth’s a surprise

And capitalism becomes a disguise

For the crooks who plan our demise
