Cold War Kids - Welcome to the Occupation Lyrics

Whistle blowers gotta get outta school
They don't want poets
they want pigeons on a stool
You're examining fossils, defending criminals
I'm clock watching getting dumb
Photographing models a house painter's solace
I'm like sisyphus in the sun

And I give up
Raising your kids America
You treat 'em like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details
devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch + chain
The devil's in the details
devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch + chain

Whistle blowers, we know how you feel
Public servants, surrender their free will
But you can't be in politics and work in the circus
You have to choose just one
You hold the nail, I'll swing the hammer
That's how things get done
And goodbye valedictorians goodbye punk
Goodbye valedictoriasn goodbye punks

And I give up
Raising your kids
America
You treat 'em like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details
The devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch + chain
The devil's in the details
Devil's in the details
Got your gold watch + chain
