The Shadow Government Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Driving home from my met lab
Realized something had changed
Looked in the sky, saw with my eye
The moon was following me

Where's the shadow government when you need it?
Where's the shadow government?
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad world

Sifting through the confetti
I picked up my broken phone
Looked in the crack, somebody waved back
Just sitting on their somebody throne

Where's the shadow government when you need it?
Where's the shadow government?
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad

Up the library steps
Up the library steps
Up the library steps
Up the library steps

Here comes
(Up the library steps)
The Humvee
(Up the library steps)
The Humvee
(Up the library steps)

Crawling out of the flophouse
I saw the mayor stealing my junk
I doth protest, citizen's arrest
Now my body's in his trunk

Where's the shadow government when you need it?
Where's the shadow government?
It's a bad, bad world
It's a bad, bad world, it's a bad, bad
