Some kind of feelings
don't have an end
Surly situations come back
To haunt you again.

Johnny you are irritating
Like dirt in me eyes.
You've got your information
Unleashed.
What's in it for me?

You're the spine, you are the backbone
This nation state.
Fill up their heads with fear
Or fill their eyes with lust.

God save your vested interest
'Cause in God we trust.
There's a big house on the hill there
What's in it for us?
What's in it for us?
What's in it for us?
What's in it for?

Boxes that you're watching
Day and night
Caught us tagging in here
It's the end of me now

That you be selling ammunitions
That backfired on you
When you created a warzone
What's in it for you?
What's in it for you?
What's in it for you?
What you in it for?

    My InterpretationI assumed this song's about America's foreign policy re. the Iraq war and the creation of terrorists etc. "Johnny" could be referring to Johnny Foreigner. The "Big House on the Hill" could be the White House and so on...
