Three Pieces for the Devil's Chess Game

lyrics

There's a crack in the system,
Something causin' a schism,
I'm sick of losin' my wisdom,
Television media masochism,

I'm gonna become a confederate,
Your pawns will not be my president,

Let's put a crack in the system,
I'm gonna break this thing wide open now,
We've convinced ourselves that love is dead,
And nothing's gonna matter but us in the end,
And you wanna sit upon your white house throne
a man you're gonna call your god who can never
ever save your souls,

I'm gonna become a confederate,
Your pawns will not be my president,
Three pieces for the devil's chess game,
Don't care about nothin' but green money trees anyway,
I'm gonna become a confederate,
Your pawns will not be my president,

Let's put a crack in the system!
