about

A grooving tune about running from your past and trying to control your future.

lyrics

The raging soldier looked down at his bloody work
(three questions for a dollar)
The audience cheered when he cried,
"I'm sorry"
(three questions for a dollar)

Soothsayer
Was I born in sin?
Soothsayer
Do I get redemption?
Soothsayer
Can you sell me an exemption?

It's all the rage, but just half of the calories
(three questions for a dollar)
It's never having to say,
“I'm sorry”
(three questions for a dollar)

Soothsayer
Will I change the world?
Soothsayer
Do I rise in glory?
Soothsayer
Who plays me in my story?

And up where the gold is counted
Like a godless prayer
Villains are selling us out
To despair

But there is a pirate crew
Speeding ’cross the sea
Smuggling sweet consolation
To me

I love your hair, your t-shirt rebellion
(three questions for a dollar)
But protest was never your scene
So boring
(three questions for a dollar)

Soothsayer
Will I die alone?
Soothsayer
Will we stand together?
Soothsayer
What's happening to the weather?

Somewhere over Hiroshima
There's a plane in the sky
Waiting
(Buying guns with diamonds)
Somewhere on such a perfect day
(Spilling blood for oil)
Lovers lie in the grass
Laughing
(There's poison in the soil)
