The fate of man never so dire
Meltin’ free will, no words to choose
A decent man must be a liar

Our ever-expanding empire
No morality left to lose
The fate of man never so dire

A bigot’s glory we admire
Apologetics on the news
A decent man must be a liar

Let the Middle East burn in fire
Women and men, children and bruise
The fate of man never so dire

Decency has gone to retire
Vanishin’ songs of the Old muse
A decent man must be a liar

Smokes of war seem to rise much higher
Pick up your arms ‘n’ sing the blues:
The fate of man never so dire
A decent man must be a liar
