Lyrics

THE NEW DARK AGES
(Tonio K./George Conner)

darlin', it's a hard life if you're lucky
ah, but it's a short life if you're not
the sheriff and the terrorist are both hungry
you spend all your time tryin' not to get caught (in the crossfire)
it ain't no joke
and it ain't no lie
gangsters tell you what to think
what are you, the missing link?
wise up, welcome to the new dark ages

gangsters hangin' round of every description
gangsters write your books and sing your songs
gangsters grin out of the television
gangsters on the couch and on the lawn
gangsters of love
gangsters in the government
they have told us what to think
what am i, the missing link?
wise up, welcome to the new dark ages

you can face it now, or face it later
you will have to face it either way
you should hate them with a perfect hatred
take that long night's journey into day
it isn't up to me
it isn't up to you (we don't make the rules)
false is false and true is true
only one thing we can do
shine the light into the new dark ages
