Queensryche Lyrics

Revolution Calling lyrics

(Geoff Tate/Michael Wilton)

For a price I'd do anything

Except pull the trigger

For that I need a pretty good cause

Then I heard of Dr. X

The man with the cure

Just watch the television

You'll see there's something going on

Got no love for politicians

Or that crazy scene in D.C.

It's just a power mad town

But the time is ripe for changes

There's a growing feeling

That taking a chance on a new kind of vision is due

I used to trust the media

To tell me the truth, tell us the truth

But now I've seen the payoffs

Everywhere I look

Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

CHORUS

Revelution calling

Revolution calling

Revolution calling you

Revolution calling

Revolution calling

Gotta make a change

Gota push, gotta push it on through

I'm tired of all this bullshit

They keep selling me on TV

About thte communist plan

And all the shady preachers

Begging for my cash

Swiss bank accounts while giving their

Secretaries the slam

They're all in Penthouse now

Or Playboy Magazine

Million dollar stories to tell

I guess Warhol wasn't wrong

Fame fifteen minutes long

Everyon'es using everybody, making the sale

I used to think

That only America's way, way was right

But now the holy dollar rules everybody's lives

Gotta make a million doesn't matter who dies

CHORUS

I used to trust the media

To tell me the truth, tell us the truth

But now I've seen the payoffs

Everywhere I look

Who do you trust when everyone's a crook

CHORUS

"Operation" is my favorite Queensryche album and one of my favorite rock albums.
Unfortunately the lyrics represent how the majority of most countries were, still are and how they will be...

Religion and sex are powerplays
Manipulate the people for the money they pay
Selling skin, selling god
The numbers look the same on their credit cards
Politicians say no to drugs
While we pay for wars in south america

Fighting fire with empty words
While the banks get fat
And the poor stay poor
And the rich get rich
And the cops get paid
To look away
As the one percent rules america

Spreading the disease
Everybody needs
But no one wants to see
The way society
Keeps spreading the disease

Queensryche?  Really?  I think I own Operation Mindcrime but never really gave it a chance.  I was really put off by the umlaut over the y.  :p
