about

They /always/ wear black.

lyrics

Locked away in the vaults
Computers made from human brains
A vast network overground
Invisible connections make us slaves

Batteries powered by our sun
Sealed within our primate skulls
You and I power their machines
They guide our evolution, then we're culled

You can see them
Everywhere
In the shadows
So beware

Hiding in darkness
Watching near and far
Dressed to kill
We'll tell you who they are...

They always wear black

As old as the Earth
A timeless brotherhood
Reshaping the land
Oceans once lied, mountains once stood

Sharply dressed men and birds
Black shades hide their scheming eyes
With a single flick of the wrist
The cigarette's flying... Now you die!

You can see them
Everywhere
In the shadows
So beware

Hiding in darkness
Watching near and far
Dressed to kill
We'll tell you who they are...

They always wear black
