lyrics

Cynic's Anthem

The cynic -he said it
"no man can find the truth"
Philosophy -he's safe there
born in his raging youth

Politician -paints a Monet
Every stroke with a straight face
Believers seeking refuge
from lies they must embrace

Cynic's Anthem
Rapid-fire
All of those famous last words
Down to the wire

The priest resigns for new religion
yes -a classic hymn
Chapter and verse collide
as logic is condemned...

Cynic's Anthem
Rapid-fire
All of those famous last words
Down to the wire

People laughing at pain
while they fake their welcomes
another bit of wisdom told
I just see silhouettes
Pen my score with no regrets
Nothing ever changes.
Nothing ever changes.

Cynic's Anthem
Rapid-fire
All those - famous last words
Down to the wire

No defenses -epic fail
"So sure" -from your high horse
fighting tooth and nail...
