puppet lyrics – warmen


you give a kid some candy
he will always ask for more
you give a man some power
and off he goes to war
so many strings tightly attached
he seems like he is lost
he makes a fine new decision
whatever be the cost

i see images that cull
up on our deepest fears
just when all seems well
the puppet appears

take me to silence
i don’t want to hear
bring me to blindness
i don’t need to see

he’ll pay no heed to his neighbour
he’ll pay the price to rule
only greed will bring him pleasure
and make him king of fools
