staying on message

there is no hope of even least denial
errors and mishaps are put on for show
the record states we traded blow for blow
and put the foolish villain up on trial
it does not matter if you spin the dial
there is not one who cannot hope to know
just where and when they have to head below
and who will be forced to accept exile
not one of us who knows just how to bend
before the kind of force that you can bring
to tear apart the scrim that hides the sky
you teach us quickly where we have to send
the ones who learn to squeal and how to sing
and how true glory rises from the lie
