about

Inspired by Confessions of an Economic Hitman. This is the way our government operates, making deals with dictators and if you don't play ball, you're murdered or replaced. I am trained by a beautiful assassin and I decide to buck the US government in the end and am fleeing for my life.

lyrics

I walked on after you and I saw you in the light
I walked on after you and I caught you in disguise
You looked surprised
They sent you to me just to pull me in their crimes
You saw right through me as an actor reads his lines
I was unwise

You never thought it mattered much
If I could see beyond your touch
You knew if I refused their game
All they gave they'd take away

I saw the leader as he left the flashing lights
his plastic smile vanished as soon as he caught my eye
I looked inside
He sat me down alone and I told him of his price
The jackals waited for my message in the night
That he would fight

And you, the angel of death, came
From powers hidden with no name
The darkness big as pitch black night
Presenting you in your disguise

The leader's best friend dead and bleeding in the rain
And like that leader I'd have the world or face the pain
Or run in vain

It's all before us in plain sight
Yet no one even dares to fight
I bought the leader one more day
As I gave the plan away
I only broke through tell tale eyes
I knew too much and could not hide
