Bloodshot eyes, witness as the mother Mary cries, bloody tears appear from the sky
What a site to behold, what a lie to be told, the audience is sold

Taking advantage of, gullible ignorance
Bow your head in silence
Never mind the man behind the curtain
Overlook the bottles of red dye
Televise it all through smoke and mirrors
Everyone will fall right in to line
It works every time

Gather round children and listen, to the wonders of this life
They exaggerate the world because, they know that you are blind
Unsew the stitches from our eyes, and lead us astray no more
Mother spare, the anesthesia
At least we'll know, what to expect

She said just take a drink
Snake oil will fix you right up
And if you still feel pain
Just take another drink

Placebo suggestions, persuade the weak
With magic tricks, and marketing
Telling lies is cheaper than the truth
And white lies draw the lines that fence us in
Your silver bullet, your catholicon, is to manufacture, miracles

And when we finally see, that we put our faith in novelty
We'll see the world for what it truly is, a disgusting hole full of disappointment

Bloodshot eyes, witness as the mother Mary cries, bloody tears appear from the sky
What a site to behold, what a lie to be told, the audience is
