lyrics

Everything's Quiet & The People Are Tame

Cardinal Pride swears that there's nothing wrong
One hand on the Bible; one hand on your son
So, I will not be told that there's no one to blame
With what forgiveness the ultimate price that they pay?
But, now everything's quiet, and the people are tame...

Sheriff John Doe, he says to his son:
"They'll never know if they go one by one."
So, I will not be told that there's no one to blame
And, I won't quit my fight 'til the cops get the same
But, now everything's quiet, and the people are tame...

Senator War, he sounds the alarm
He knows not what for, but he means you no harm
So, I will not be told that there's no one to blame
I march in my protest, but I march just the same
And, now everything's quiet, and the people are tame...

All the men on the floor say, "I am your man!"
"To fight for the poor and the good of this land!"
So, I will not be told that there's no one to blame
Oh, how good is a vote for the love of the game?
And, now everything's quiet, and the people are tame...

President Scam, with his eyes on what's yours
Says, "Forget the horizon, look back to the shore!"
"Look to Old Uncle Sam and the greatness that's there."
"Where I won't even have to pretend that I care."
"Where I'll never be told that I'm someone to blame."
"And, there always is somebody else I can frame."
"Where everything's quiet, and the people are tame."
And, now everything's quiet, and the people are tame...
