We started this up so many years ago
Now we can't make it stop
We let the devil out of his box
And we can't put back the top

He runs freely in our midsts
And we just have to let him
He broke us down to smithereens
And there's no one left to get him

He has wrecked our perfect view
He has spoiled our oceans
He has played us all for fools
And played off our emotions

We look up to him like he's a god
What other choice do we got
'Cos if we say what we really think
He will leave us all to rot

He has eyes that are ruby red
And hair of golden weave
He is good at sounding good
And we want to believe

We can blame him for all our woes
We can blame him for our demise
But we placed him on that pedestal
And we didn't see through his lies

He asked us all to follow him
And follow him we did
We let the devil out of his box
And we can't put back the lid
