I Work in a Strange Business, and Trust Is a Word That's Not Even in the Vocabulary

Updated on September 18, 2017

I ain't death trip, but I ain't automatic

When will this cease
One side of his face a kiss
Revelation has come to pass
Killing for religion

I ain't death trip, but I ain't automatic
No contest, nowhere to run

And darkness fell upon our people

So courageous
Thinking down to your level
Revelation has come to pass
And darkness fell upon our people
No contest, nowhere to run
Governed by laws set up by me
Engaged in crime I grasp my throat

But we do it for the fame, yeah
Upon my podium, as the
So courageous
I ain't death trip, but I ain't automatic
No contest, nowhere to run
Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
So courageous
So courageous

And darkness fell upon our people
No contest, nowhere to run
Don't ask what you can do for you country

Thinking down to your level
Revelation has come to pass
Upon my podium, as the
So courageous
Thinking down to your level

I ain't death trip, but I ain't automatic
So courageous

And darkness fell upon our people

When will this cease
One side of his face a kiss
Revelation has come to pass
Don't ask what you can do for you country

Thinking down to your level
High priests of holocaust, fire from the sea
And darkness fell upon our people
Thinking down to your level
So courageous

No contest, nowhere to run
One side of his face a kiss
Thinking down to your level

Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
Vengence is mine
Engaged in crime I grasp my throat
No contest, nowhere to run

I ain't death trip, but I ain't automatic
No contest, nowhere to run

Thinking down to your level
High priests of holocaust, fire from the sea
Engaged in crime I grasp my throat

Vengence is mine
One side of his face a kiss
Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain
And darkness fell upon our people
But we do it for the fame, yeah
Upon my podium, as the
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury
And darkness fell upon our people
Revelation has come to pass
You work for me, you're working nine-to-five.


In my opinions as a professional I recommend

With mud and straw, blood and sweat
One man rules the earth
Run for cover, run
Know it all scholar

In my opinions as a professional I recommend
No one spoke no one even dared

A plan of dignity and balance for all

Selective amnesia's the story
The more insatiable the sex
Run for cover, run
A plan of dignity and balance for all
No one spoke no one even dared
Going to war, give 'em hell
Enraged my mind starts to smoke

By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
Until all is lost
Selective amnesia's the story
In my opinions as a professional I recommend
No one spoke no one even dared
Enraged my mind starts to smoke
Selective amnesia's the story
Selective amnesia's the story

A plan of dignity and balance for all
No one spoke no one even dared
Do you kill on god's command?

The more insatiable the sex
Run for cover, run
Until all is lost
Selective amnesia's the story
The more insatiable the sex

In my opinions as a professional I recommend
Selective amnesia's the story

A plan of dignity and balance for all

With mud and straw, blood and sweat
One man rules the earth
Run for cover, run
Do you kill on god's command?

The more insatiable the sex
He is untouchable
A plan of dignity and balance for all
The more insatiable the sex
Selective amnesia's the story

No one spoke no one even dared
One man rules the earth
The more insatiable the sex

Enraged my mind starts to smoke
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Enraged my mind starts to smoke
No one spoke no one even dared

In my opinions as a professional I recommend
No one spoke no one even dared

The more insatiable the sex
He is untouchable
Enraged my mind starts to smoke

Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
One man rules the earth
Computer banks to rule the world
A plan of dignity and balance for all
By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
Until all is lost
Lucretia waits impatiently
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Run for cover, run
You don't do what you want and you fade away.


In the dark of dawn patrol

We've been run down every hill
Our environment was wrecked
Rest assured these things I know
Killing for religion

In the dark of dawn patrol
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see

A crosswalk hit and run

Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind
They say he's sick, he's obscene
Rest assured these things I know
A crosswalk hit and run
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see
Going down full throttle
Entrails in the sky

By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
Unlike your love for me
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind
In the dark of dawn patrol
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see
Entrails in the sky
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind

A crosswalk hit and run
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see
Don't come to me if you need pity

They say he's sick, he's obscene
Rest assured these things I know
Unlike your love for me
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind
They say he's sick, he's obscene

In the dark of dawn patrol
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind

A crosswalk hit and run

We've been run down every hill
Our environment was wrecked
Rest assured these things I know
Don't come to me if you need pity

They say he's sick, he's obscene
He is untouchable
A crosswalk hit and run
They say he's sick, he's obscene
Superstitious dust left twisting in the wind

Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see
Our environment was wrecked
They say he's sick, he's obscene

Entrails in the sky
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Entrails in the sky
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see

In the dark of dawn patrol
Now he's nothing for no one nowhere to see

They say he's sick, he's obscene
He is untouchable
Entrails in the sky

Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Our environment was wrecked
Cease to speak or cease to breathe
A crosswalk hit and run
By virtue of the jury's decision and the power
Unlike your love for me
Lucretia waits impatiently
A crosswalk hit and run
Rest assured these things I know
You take a mortal man

In this bed I made for me

Well, me ... it's nice talking to myself
Only left alone
Random turmoil builds in me
Know it all scholar

In this bed I made for me
No more mister clean

And much too late I realize

Suffocating, no one hears my calls
Taste copper on my tongue
Random turmoil builds in me
And much too late I realize
No more mister clean
Gavel's bang, uphold the law
Eradication of earths

Be as great as you want me to be
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Suffocating, no one hears my calls
In this bed I made for me
No more mister clean
Eradication of earths
Suffocating, no one hears my calls
Suffocating, no one hears my calls

And much too late I realize
No more mister clean
Dave your mental anyway hey!

Taste copper on my tongue
Random turmoil builds in me
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Suffocating, no one hears my calls
Taste copper on my tongue

In this bed I made for me
Suffocating, no one hears my calls

And much too late I realize

Well, me ... it's nice talking to myself
Only left alone
Random turmoil builds in me
Dave your mental anyway hey!

Taste copper on my tongue
How to live?
And much too late I realize
Taste copper on my tongue
Suffocating, no one hears my calls

No more mister clean
Only left alone
Taste copper on my tongue

Eradication of earths
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Eradication of earths
No more mister clean

In this bed I made for me
No more mister clean

Taste copper on my tongue
How to live?
Eradication of earths

Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Only left alone
Clinging on to life
And much too late I realize
Be as great as you want me to be
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage
And much too late I realize
Random turmoil builds in me
You can subdue, but never tame me
