Line them up against the factory wall
Burn down all the inconvenience stores
Smash the anchors back into the boats
These people weren’t invited by the hosts

Different strokes for difficult folks

When trying to find truth, you’re slightly askew
If you let nothing but good intentions show
You’re searching for truth, there’s nothing so pure.
You can’t keep a good intention on its own

Cluster all my rivals like a bomb
Keep the vultures sweet under my thumb
Conforming for the sake of common good
Keep the motor running under my hood

Diligent strokes for dissident folks

When trying to find truth, you’re slightly askew
If you let nothing but good intentions show
You’re searching for truth, there’s nothing so pure.
You can’t keep a good intention alone

When trying to find truth, you’re slightly askew
If you let nothing but good intentions show
You’re searching for truth, but there’s nothing so pure.
You can’t keep a good intention on its own

No one knows the trouble that I’ve seen
I was only building a machine
The cutting edge that brought me to my knees
The consequence was never in my dream

Similar strokes with different cloaks

When trying to find truth, you’re slightly askew
If you let nothing but good intentions show
You’re searching for truth, there’s nothing so pure
As keeping a good intention alone

When trying to find truth, you’re slightly askew
If you let nothing but good intentions show
You’re searching for truth, but there’s nothing so pure.
You can’t keep a good intention on its own
