Shut up and do what my money says. Shut up and do what my money says. Greedy thieves got inside your head, bow down…bow down Protecting me, bring out your dead, attention deficit…what was that you said? Your pharmaceuticals medicate my head…..bow down, bow down. Chorus: Call me The Idea Man, messiah master plan. Drink my Kool-Aid! Before it’s too late. Call me Persuasion Lord, send me money….shock and awe Put on your running shoes, they’ll come for me and you, come on! Tune in and do what the liars say, tune out and do what the liars say Lobby dollars have paved all the way….bow down, bow down Protecting me, bring out your dead, attention deficit…what was that you said? Your pharmaceuticals medicate my head…..bow down, bow down. Chorus: Verse 1 Chorus: Patent pending, recession proof, blue blooded, pin striped suit I reach across the aisle, messiah liar’s smile Patent pending, recession proof, copy-written I owe you I reach across the aisle, messiah liar’s smile
