Whistle blowers, gotta get outta school
They don't want poets they want pigeons on a stool

You're examining fossils, defending criminals
I'm clock watching getting dumb
Photographic models, a house painted solace
I'm like [Incomprehensible] in the sun

And I give up raising your kids America
You treat 'em like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details, devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch and chain
The devil's in the details, devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch and chain

Whistle blowers, we know how you feel
Public servants, surrender their free will
But you can't ban politics and work in the circus
You have to choose just one

You hold the nail, I'll swing the hammer
That's how things get done
And goodbye valedictorians, goodbye punks
Goodbye valedictorians, goodbye punks

And I give up raising your kids America
You treat 'em like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details, the devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch and chain
The devil's in the details, devil's in the details
Got your gold watch and chain
