the road downhill

the answer comes to us in a great roar
the crowd is chanting and the leader smiles
we have been once more taken by his wiles
he is the one who truly knows the score
when we awaken we'll be truly sore
the lies will mount up in gigantic piles
while we're distracted by the changing styles
and then we'll find ourselves again at war
we have been trained to listen for the drum
to let the martial music guide our sense
and when we hear it played to sing and yell
we're never asked to understand the sum
of all the pains and the torments intense
that turn our little happiness to hell
