I could make you scared if you want me to
I'm not prepared, but if I have to
He said, "I can make you scared, it's kinda what I do
If you're prepared, here's what I can put you through"

You're in Russia and more than a million works of art
Are whisked out to the woods
When the Nazis find the whole place dark
They'd think God's left the museum for good

I make you scared, if that's what I do
I'm not prepared, but if you have to
He said, I can make you scared, it'll only take a minute or two
If that's the deal then here's what I can do for you

Now there's a focus group that can prove
This is all nothing but cold calculation

Tests have shown that suspicious or hostile
Their lives need not be short
Truth be told, they can live a long, long while
Tickled to death by their importance

If you make me scared, that's what you do
If I'm unclear can I get out of this thing with me and you?
He said, If you feel scared or a bit confused
I gotta say this sounds a little beyond anything I'm used to

There's a precious few that can prove that at the root
This is all nothing but a cold calculation

Clearly entranced, you're leaning back now
Defanged destroyer limps into the bay
Down at the beach it's attracting quite a crowd
As kids wade through blood, out to it to play

Okay, you made me scared and you did what you set out to do
I'm not prepared, really had me going there for a minute or two
He said, "You made me scared too, I wasn't sure I was getting through
Now I gotta go, it's been a pleasure doing business with you"

[Incomprehensible]
