"This is a punk rock song.
It doesn't sound like a punk rock song, but it is!
Just listen..."

You've been led on
Yes, you were wrong
The whole time

You've been led on
Completely wrong
The whole time

They pave the way for every second of your day
It is no myth; no it's the Bible of the God
That they erected on the ashes of your neighborhood
He's looming like, like the god of blunder
Lie, lie lie, lie lie, lie lie
You sing to sing his praise because you're lazy
And you've been taught too much to learn.
Another pawn, a pink flamingo on the lawn
On the capitol of shame
With your buried head and only you to blame.

You've been led on
Yes, you were wrong
The whole time

You've been led on
Completely wrong
The whole time

The rodeo begins, They take us for a ride
and we are flailing, but as hard as we may buck
the king of fools is still in place and fit to rule.
You fucking praise him. Yes, you fillet'd him with your trust
Your parents, parents, made this happen.
Yeah eat your words and fold your napkins!
Another pawn, a pink flamingo on the lawn,
and that's all you'll ever be.
And if you thought that you were free, well...

You've been led on
Yes, you were wrong
The whole time

You've been led on
Completely wrong
The whole time

    General CommentChrist, I'll do it myself.

    You've been let on
    Yes you were wrong
    The whole time

    You've been let on
    Completely wrong
    The whole time

    They pave the way for every second of your day
    It is no myth; no it’s the bible of the god
    That they erected on the ashes of your neighborhood,
    He’s looming look like the god of blunder,
    Lie lie lie lie lie lie lie,
    You sink to sing his praise because you’re lazy and you've been taught too much to learn.
    Another pawn, a pink flamingo on the lawn of the capital of shame
    With your buried head and only you to blame

    You've been let on
    Yes you were wrong
    The whole time

    You've been let on
    Completely wrong
    The whole time

    The radio begins they take us for a ride and we are flailing,
    But as hard as we may buck, the king of fools is still in place and fit to rule,
    You fucking praise him; yes you fellate him with your trust,
    Your parent’s parents made this happen, yeah eat your words and fold your napkins,
    Another pawn a pink flamingo on the lawn and that’s all you'll ever be,
    And if you thought that you were free, well

    You've been let on
    Yes you were wrong
    The whole time

    You've been let on
    Completely wrong
    The whole time

    I'm in no way insinuating this is perfect but holy crap, the word fellate is sort of important in this song. this song isn't about Bush, it's about the state of the society that supports Bush.

    General Commentits definitely "you've been LED on" not let. and i could be wrong but i think what mattz meant by "supporting bush" is that this song is about THOSE WHO SUPPORT bush, and not bush himself.

    General Commentyou are right, it is about the society that supports Bush, but that does in a way make the song about Bush, and how much of a horrible president he is

    Point being...Say Anything=AMAZING

    (even tho they've cancelled 2 tours on me, I still love them)

    General Commenti think it's led on.

    and this is more about supporting bush than bush himself which is actually pretty refreshing. there are too many anti-bush songs.

    General CommentUhhh. No. You're wrong. This isn't "about supporting bush".

    "The king of fools is still in place and fit to rule"

    Who else could Max be talking about? Tony Blair?

    I think it's funny how oblivious someone could be and not even realize that they are the ones being insulted for voting for Bush.

    It amazes me how stupid and blind you are to not even comprehend the lyrics.

    Bush is a great example of a politician. He cares more about saving face than others. You're just another one of his pawns, doing as your told, blindly believing in whatever he says. Grow a spine and start thinking for yourself.
