    I’m so tired of these mortal men
    with their hands on their wallets and their hearts full of sin
    scared of their enemies, scared of their friends
    and always running for re-election
    so come to DC if it be thy will
    because we’ve never had a savior on Capitol Hill

    you can always trust the devil or a politician
    to be the devil or a politician
    but beyond that friends you’d best beware
    ‘cause at the Pentagon bar they’re an inseparable pair
    and as long as the lobbyists are paying their bills
    we’ll never have a savior on Capitol Hill

    all of our problems gonna disappear
    when we can whisper right in that President’s ear
    he could walk right across the reflection pool
    in his combat boots and ten thousand dollar suit

    you can render unto Caesar everything that’s his
    you can trust in his power to come to your defense
    it’s the way of the world, the way of the gun
    it’s the trading of an evil for a lesser one
    so don’t hold your breath or your vote until
    you think you’ve finally found a savior up on Capitol Hill
