They come, they take
It's never enough because they can't relate
To the real world
Thinking that the oyster is just for the pearl

They start those wars
They want to own the land, sea and all the stars
And right those wrongs
They change their history with their poison forked tongue

All right, who's they?
A maybe its the government of today
Or B for the big business man
Who thinks the whole world revolves around him

Or C for the corrupt official
For A and B, he be the man in the middle
Or D for discoverer for Cook
And Columbus and the pirate plunderers

Doesn't mean I ain't got no fight now
Just because I don't got a gun
The lyrical is heavier than lead
And this guitar is my canon

Just like my Martin and Mahatma
I'm gonna love, I'm gonna over come
Maybe it's E for all of the above
But I don't want to be

Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around, gonna back it on up

Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going on a one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around, gonna back it on up

These men who they say we should follow
But we can't follow men if their hearts are hollow
And mmm, yes, how can we respect
Puppet regimes we do not elect?

Straight up, straight up like Pinocchio
And every time they lie, man, the fire just grows so
Now's time to be part of the solution
Raise your fist if you believe in revolution

Doesn't mean I ain't got no fight now
Just because I don't got a gun
The lyrical is heavier than lead
And this guitar is my canon

Just like my Martin and Mahatma
I'm gonna love, I'm gonna over come
Maybe it's E for all of the above
But I don't want to be

Living in a pantomime, living in a fantasy
I don't want to be, don't want to be
I don't want to be, don't want to be, no

Living in a pantomime, living in a fantasy
I don't want to be, don't want to be
I don't want to be, don't want to be, no

Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around, gonna back it on up

Wrong way going down the one way road
Wrong way going on a one way road
Wrong way going down the one way road
Gonna turn it all around, gonna back it on up
