                            Born on the blind side of midnight
                            Canít bust these chains Ďround me
                            Twisted truth don't make wrong right
                            Canít buy whatís for free
                            DNA string of lie on lie
                            A domino chain reaction
                            Lost generation born to try
                            We get no satisfaction

                            Judas sits in the capitol tower
                            Lazarus weeps by the gates
                            Straw dog rulers of corporate power
                            Leave the people in dire straits
                            Page is turnin' to a great world war
                            They wrote it all down in the book
                            He's knockin' at the door with the cure
                            Best drink the water while itís still in the brook

                                  Listen to a good news tune
                                  Listen to a song that plays for free
                                  It requires no religion
                                  No belief in Christianity
                                  Listen to a good news tune
                                  Changiní losers into winners
                                  Song of the fisher king
                                  Friend of planet earthís sinners

                                  Listen to a good news tune
                                  Listen close and you will hear it
                                  The true God wants to forgive us
                                  And fill us with loveís spirit
                                  Listen to a good news tune
                                  Only the truth can make us free
                                  Song of the fisher king
                                  Cominí from the stars of eternity

                            Judas sits in the capitol tower
                            Lazarus weeps by the gates
                            Straw dog rulers of corporate power
                            Leave the people in dire straits
                            Page is turnin' to a great world war
                            They wrote it all down in the book
                            He's knockin' at the door with the cure
                            Best drink the water while itís still in the brook

                            God asks only that we call on his name
                            They wrote it in the Bible book
                            He's knockin' at the door with the only cure
                            Drink the water while itís still in the brook
                            While it's still in the brook
                            While it's still in the brook *



* Title concept from the motion picture "The Fisher King", starring Jeff Bridges and Robin Williams
