Lyrics

You could be good
You could be better than the limp trick
That you drive up the asphalt of my town
You could be wood
You could be leather but you’re plastic
And you drive honest people in the ground
And if they trust you just a little bit, you take them all the way

And you say, all right
Ban books and burn them tonight
Oh yeah, all right
Unless you read from the right

You fool my friends
You fool my neighbors and it’s not right
When everything is something to destroy
Even the men don’t get the mother loving shaft like
Every desperate woman you deploy
And if you take away the benefits, just think of what you’ll save

And you say, all right
Ban books and music tonight
Oh yeah, all right
Unless you sing from the right

You’re the one they trust, you’re the one they believe
You’re the one they thought you would never deny or deceive
It’s the one true love, it’s the unbroken mind
It’s the one you thought you would never recover and find
But they did it, they did it all the time to you
You didn’t even mind it, too

And if they trust you just a little bit, you take them all the way

And you say, all right
Ban books and burn them tonight
Oh yeah, all right
Unless you read from the right
Red, blue, and white
Stand up and fall for your country tonight
