lyrics

Snake Oil

You smile your plastic smile and prattle to the masses
Hoping that no one is listening too close
Step up one and all - we're here to save your asses
Twenty-first century shaman you're the host with the most

Just sign the dotted line as if it made a difference
Haven't needed your approval for quite some time
But it's always good to have someone inside the crosshairs
Someone to play the figurehead
Someone to save the day

Snake oil
Makes my blood boil
Makes me recoil
You know you're going to pay
Snake oil
Makes me recoil
Makes my blood boil
You know you're going to pay

You can't always see the figures hiding in the shadows
But we've always been here and always will be
Would you rather see the puppet or the puppeteer?
Keep that self delusion
Land of the free

Snake oil
Makes my blood boil
Makes me recoil
You know you're going to pay
Snake oil
Makes me recoil
Makes my blood boil
You know you're going to pay
