lyrics: “what is a mastermind?”

What is a mastermind?
You ask “what is a mastermind?”
well how would I know
cause I’m just another fool
made from the public school mold
Same as you, same as me, same as almost everybody
We all say it shouldn’t be this way, but what can we do: pray?
Well, I even went to a Santa Claus church for a while
but their kind of circular logic never was my style
Some say they love the Bible, but they seem so scared of it
I quote one troubling verse to them and they freeze or flee from it
Shame is sacred to them which is fine with me
but they don’t want to admit it and that’s the irony
They’re scared someone might find out they’re scared
about someone finding out their religion is paranoia
 
They all say… be careful what you say
Or the devil may come to take you away
but I say… be careful how you say
Or the sheriff may come to take you away
Now I see the value in boogeymen and Santas
(to distract the kids and influence their actions)
We deceive them for their own good- that may be true
but is that deception an exception or the standard way to rule?
Which government teaches that their government isn’t
heroic and valiant and just and perfect?
Which religion teaches that their competition
deserves more authority and value and respect?
 
They all say… be careful what you say
Or the devil may come to take you away
but I say… be careful how you say
when you’re talking to the sheriff or the judge who heads the gang
Too many governments are violent and deceptive.
They shouldn’t be like that. They should be less competitive.
At least that’s what some politicians say
through the press release media propaganda campaign.
“My church is the only true one”
said every prophet in the history of religion
I get it. It keeps the subjects loyal.
Make them scared and guilty then trap them in a single coil.
Monopoly is the essence of their message.
If you want access to heaven, it’s quite exclusive.
But loyalty is the point of their theatrics
Do as we say or else… cause we handle the benefits
It’s like a government, with slightly different tactics
but so much is similar if you watch how they practice.
Take a crusade or holy inquisition
Coercion and deception govern. Now, do you get it?
They all say… be careful what you say
Or the devil may come to take you away
but I say… be careful how you say
when you’re talking to anyone who claims to be a savior
said the prophets of paranoia as they cast their spell.
“Hide your fear. Hide your shame. Hide your sadness and rage.
The only thing wrong with you is anything we don’t approve.”
Do I condemn them… shaking scared with contempt?
Or are all of these governing officers just my servants?
If accused of being the devil, do I defend in distress?
I neither confirm nor deny. “No comment” is my reply.
 
They all say… be careful what you say
Or the devil may come to take you away
but I say… for you it’s just too late, 
because now here I am.
 
What is a mastermind?
The mastermind is not the soldier who pulls the trigger
nor the officer who orders the shot.
The mastermind is the one who creates the puppets
and pulls the strings behind the scenes, all according to the plot.
