From the drip, drip, drip of the teardrops
To the chink, chink, chink of the cash
To the end, end, end of the friendships
To the wack, wack, wack of the bash

Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul
Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul

From the tick, tick, tick of your time's up
To the yes, yes, yes of 'I'll sell
From the fact, fact, fact of the soulless
To the pact, pact, pact with hell

Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul
Corruption, corruption, corruption
Chills my bones

Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul
Corruption, corruption, corruption
Chills my bones

From the scream, scream, scream of the babies
To the retch, retch, retch of the youth
From the lie, lie, lie of the righteous
To the lost, lost, lost way I feel

Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my bones
Corruption, corruption, corruption
Chills my bones

Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul
Corruption, corruption, corruption
Rules my soul
Corruption, corruption, oh

Order in the court, decision to abort
The monkey wants to speak
So, speak, monkey, speak

Speak, monkey, speak
Speak, monkey, speak
Speak, monkey, speak
Speak, monkey, speak

Everything leads to corruption
Everything leads to corruption
Corruption
