Release the hand on all man, my Holy Father,
so the world shall know
that you are here to strike the hour
Did you call? I thought I heard you calling
in rhythm with my pulse
A frantic pulse
A pulse of fear, a pulse that lives inside each
Oh, yes indeed
These shallow walls can never hide you
from the deepest part of your soul

So now I'm some sort of criminal,
the one created in your mind
So now I'm labeled a pessimist,
but if the truth hurts, then you're blind
Bring me the finest wine we have
and let's give a toast to all mankind

Some may fall, then others rise, each with an answer
Bureaucracy at its best, the final answer
Yeah...now
Beset with words, incredulous stares
A man of honor I defend
Some may fall, then others rise, each with an answer
Bureaucracy at its best, the final answer

So now I'm some sort of criminal,
the one created in your mind
So now I'm labeled a pessimist,
but if the truth hurts, then you're blind
Bring me the finest wine we have
and let's give a toast to all mankind

You have the answers, I have the questions
Please tell me all I need to know
I only want the truth
You are the one who denies
and the one who will take my share
You inflict crippling thoughts
to be shrew the life that I have

So now I'm labeled a pessimist,
but if the truth hurts, then you're blind
Bring me the finest wine we have
and let's give a toast to all mankind
