License To Kill

Man thinks ’cause he rules the earth he can do with it what he wants
And if nothing changes he will keep his word
The flight to the moon was his first step
On this apocalyptic ride

There’s a woman living in my street
She just sits there, the day goes away
She says, who takes away from him the license to kill?

They take him and they teach him, send him on a path
Where he struggles and works to his bones, the soul withered
And then they lay him in the grave
But first they take away his possessions

There’s a woman living in my street
She just sits there at the wrong place
She says, who takes away from him the license to kill?

Now, he’s hell-bent for destruction, he’s afraid and confused
And his brain is programmed with south instead of north
He says he believes only what he sees
But the truth is what he flees from

There’s a woman living in my street
She just sits there, a rare treasure
She says, who takes away from him the license to kill?

You can make noise, say sayings
Harass children, hunt animals
You never stop
You are the hero
‘Til the curtain falls
Only then do you admit

Now he kneels at an altar of a muddy puddle
And he’s satisfied when he finds his image there
Oh man is not fair
Everything and this in his way – that’s what he wants

 

There’s a woman living in my street
She just sits there, the day goes away
She says, who takes away from him the license to kill?
