lyrics

When the devil wields a pen
(Steve Towson)

I stood before her that day
as she dictated how to behave
just like I was in school
but I said I'm not just anyone
I know what I've seen and done
I ain't nobody's tool

for here I chip away at night
working with my words my knives
cutting at Sarina's state
for once you cross the bottom line
you can never compromise
you're chained to Sarina's state

I had a meeting with a group
they said "we know what you're going through
for we all live there
for inside of this beaurarcy we are parts of the machine
desperate and disposable"

but I know it'll change
it has got to change
it is gonna change
someday

for in pursuit of power, wealth and sleaze
she will bring all to their knees
begging for her to care
but the more the hearts that are stacked
closer draws the final fate
the collapse of Sarina's state

for here I hack away at night
working with my words my knife
cutting at Sarina's state
for once you cross the bottom line
you can never compromise
you're chained to Sarina's state

but I know it'll change
it has got to change
it is gonna change
someday
