lyrics

the first time that i saw your bastard faces
you masters of your master race
there on the television, after your revision
of the manhattan landscape had taken place
i knew you lied, i knew you lied
i knew you knew just what was going on inside
i knew you murdered and deceived
all just to lead us to believe
that you could save us from some evil
but you're it personified i knew you lied

some will find it impossible to hear
over the roar of propaganda and that deafening tone of fear
but the story's slipping out, the whispers turn to shouts
and like me they'll lay awake all night
tha day that it comes clear
they'll know you lied, they'll know you lied
they'll know you took the whole world for a ride
they'll know you murdered and deceived
all just to lead us to believe
that you could save us from some evil
but you're it, personified they'll know you lied

for all your backroom business deals
for all the power that you wield
for all your money in your banks
for all your troops at your command
still nothing will protect you once the facts are all revealed
and we know you lied, we know you lied
as you so like to say there won't be a hole deep enough to hide
we know you lied your way to war
against the protest of the world
how many will you sacrifice so you can play at your empire
we know you lied, we know you lied
we know you took the whole world for a ride
we know you murdered and deceived
all just to lead us to believe
that you could save us from some evil
but you're it, personified

about

Myshkin Joshua Tree, California

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
