lyrics

he's a sweet man, a trifle unforgiving
a very sweet man if you want what he is giving,
if you're a fan

if you need someone to tell you what to do
to be you he's for you.

he's got command command of all his people,
we've got some land a garden and a steeple
hand in hand we want to show society the score
and the door evermore.

everything that we were fighting for was done everything was quiet,
i didn't regret what it is that we had done
till i saw you crying*

He had planned to make us revolutionaries
lean and tan, as proud of us as he could be
yeh he's the man
and when he said the word we, well we heard and deferred, no one stirred

we were manned for our own protection
made our stand the ultimate rejection
now we're crammed
hundreds of us buried with no name
called insane here's the refrain

everything that we were fighting for was done everything was quiet,
i didn't regret what it is that we had done
till i saw you crying*

he sees you when you're sleeping
but he never lets you sleep
you won't know that he's poison till you're in too deep and all the good you've worked for
will suddenly be dust
baby that's what happens when you let your judgement rust
