be careful what you pray for...you might just get it
don't try to be a hero
or youll regret it
every little thing looks bad if you remember it
wake up and smell the mildew
...then just forget it

the wings of liberty have lost their feathers
the tide turns way too often
its stormy weather
we waited long and hard
hell bent for heather
how can one so empty
remain together ever?

there are no pros in prostitution
there is no rest in restituition
but there's always ins to the institution
i keep mute in my mutilation
put up no fuss in my frustration

don't try to be a hero
or you'll regret it
be careful what you pray for
you might just get it
we waited long and hard
birds of a feather
how can two so empty
remain together ever?

there are no pros in prostitution
there is no rest in restituition
but there’s always ins to the institution
i keep mute in my mutilation
put up no fuss in my frustration

shun...shun...shun

there are no pros in prostitution
there is no rest in restituition
but there's always ins to the institution
i keep mute in my mutilation
put up no fuss in my frustration

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
