There wasn't anyone around
Another lonely night in your town

I think that you knew what you found
a friend to buy you another round

I know they told you about a man
He was a stain on the nation

I know that you do what you can
but it's an order not an invitation

What will you take to forget what you know

Now I'll show you where to sign
and await your execution

'Cause once you put it on the line
I'll be glad to take your contribution

You were attracted by the sound
of the machine generation

We've got to get you on the ground
There is no room for moderation

What will you take to forget what you know
What will you leave for a tip when you go

Laws to break and rules to bend them
Don't pretend you will defend them

Sit and you watch as they go

I know you've got a lot to give
Don't forget your will to live

Sit and you watch as they go

There was shooting all around
You saw a ditch and put your face in

And now it's trouble that you found
How did you end up in this situation

Hey it's gonna be alright
It won't be getting any worse then

You're gonna make it through the night
You're gonna try to be a better person
