Evil, Filthy, Rotten Conspiracy

by Carl Klang

Now have you seen them flying saucers
Or some of them black helicopters
Flyiní down low and over my back yard recently?
Seen them foreign troops in ninja suits
Leaviní imprints of their combat boots
In the meadow down near the neighbor next to me?
Heard theyíre buildiní concentration camps
From the rate hike off our postage stamps
To protect and defend their great democracy
Though my vote in the last election
Didnít quite match the same projection
Made by those beautiful talking heads on my TV
When I called them to complain - and I asked them to explain
They just said that it proves that youíre not in the groove
Of the new majority
Yeah sure...

Well just between you and me - canít you feel the conspiracy?
Canít you sense the hypocrisy as they call it democracy
Well itís a threat to your sanity, not to mention your liberty
And itís all an evil filthy rotten conspiracy

Now they got micro waves and laser beams
And rays to look inside your dreams
And satellites that can see your BVDs
They got chips that fit inside your head
Thatíll make you think their thoughts instead
And drugs thatíll make you do just as they please
And to make things even more serious
They got strains of new bacterias
That are sure to cause some unknown new disease
And thatís why we got fear and high anxiety
And paranoid perplexity
And the gradual loss of all our liberties
And as they try to bring us all down - they might leave us with a frown
They might even be the source of all the rumors in this town

Well just between you and me - canít you feel the conspiracy?
Canít you sense the hypocrisy as they call it democracy
Well itís a threat to your sanity, not to mention your liberty
And itís all an evil filthy rotten conspiracy

So as they redirect our mail
And all our incoming phone calls
To the Central Intelligence Agency
Weíll just hope and pray someday theyíll see
That you and me are not the enemy
Nor do we believe in cult theology
And as their police try to bust us
Weíll keep tryiní to find some justice
Though its hidden behind a wall of masonry
Weíll keep working out our Salvation
With the feeliní of fear and trembliní
Hopiní and praying someday the truth might set us all free
And just Ďcause the media wonít respond - donít mean thereís nothiní going on
And brother whatíll ya do if thereís somethiní to
All the words inside this song?

Well you can say that Iím wild eyed - that all my fears are unjustified
Or that Iím totally mystified by a Man who was crucified
But just between you and me what hung Him up on that tree -
It was all an evil filthy rotten conspiracy
Yeah, itís all an evil filthy rotten conspiracy - believe me!
