The sentence was set to a show tune
He has a program and it will save you
Crumbling past, city of gratitude
Cannot tell what is wrong

Obedient child under curfew
Citizen rolls through the drive-thru
General claims he knows the magnitude
None of us own the bomb
Denegate precedent
At your own expense
You don't suspect
Your power's checked

He's missing the lesson: Liberty
He won't forgive you if you disagree

E.M.P. waves: safe at no altitude
Patriots mock the news

He's a riot
When he's victimized
His answers try
To close your eyes
His answers try
To strike you blind
You're next in line
Don't go crying
When heroes die

They're trying to conquer history
No one will miss you when they wipe it clean

Does greatness fall after all?
Does greatness fall after all?
