lyrics

shield your eyes for the lies are crumblin'
all-a the wise men sit round bumblin'
the professor has peeled back the veneer
the preacher man says the end is near
ain't it such a shame, you can scream but nobody will hear
ain't it such a cryin' shame?

cover your ears for the fear, you shouldn't be here
everybody knows the show will bring you to tears
the sycophantic liars run amok
the crooks are in the back of the truck
ain't it such a shame, it's the same thing year after year
ain't it such a cryin' shame?

one by one, we come undone
the battle is over, but the war is never won
ash to ash and dust to dust
on every day must set a tired sun

ain't it such a cryin' shame?
