​Doublespeak

This song is by Thrice and appears on the album Beggars (2009).

I drug my heart with doublespeak
All my misgivings disappear
It helps to keep my conscience clean, the ends will justify the means
Still I'm always careful what I hear

I don't want to know
Who really pulls the strings
Just as long
As it's not you or me

There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time
While the children dance and play
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime
You just look the other way

I slowly carve my soul away
Piece by piece, I sacrifice
To comfort and peace of mind, I keep my toes on the party line
There's nothing wrong, dear, don't think twice

I don't want to know
Who really pulls the strings
Just as long
As it's not you or me

There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time
While the children dance and play
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime
You just look the other way

There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time
While the children dance and play
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime
Won't you look the other, look the other way?

There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time
While the children dance and play
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime
Won't you look the other way?

There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time
While the children dance and play
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime
Won't you look the other way?

I drug my heart with doublespeak
All my misgivings disappear
It helps to keep my conscience clean, the ends will justify the means
Still I'm always careful what I hear
