  • I hear you laughing loudly
    But I'm not laughing with you
    Well you may be joking first
    But I'll be the one who has the last laugh

    [verse 2]
    You call yourself "progressive"
    I say it's all regressive
    You think you can stand in judgment
    so listen here and I'll remind you

    ["chorus"]
    Preaching the converted 'cause it's all you know
    Music's dead because it's all about the money now
    And you don't even know who you are anymore
    "Put it out somehow" -
    and the business man laughs all the way to the bank
    and he's counting fast and he's laughing
    hard.laughing loud

    [2nd time only]
    and he's counting fast and he's laughing
    hard.laughing loud
    and you don't even know who owns you anymore
    "put it out somehow" - "put it out somehow"
    and the business man laughs all the way to the bank
    and he's counting fast and he's laughing
    hard.laughing loud
    and he's counting fast and he's laughing
    hard.laughing loud
    Can you take it?


    [cadence]
    In our test of wills you got us for a song
    Music's dead you sold us out for much too long
    preaching the converted......

    [verse 3]
    I've given you all I have
    but you say I must find more
    "I've got to dig deeper-I've got to see
    all the way within my soul"

    [verse 4]
    You may call it inspiration
    but I'd call it desperation
    We're wasting our moments for now
    reliving the past - again and again

    [repeat with "full chorus"]
    [bridge - ABA?]
    A game of tin soldiers is all that we're playing here
    but nobody wins
    Well it doesn't mean anything
    'cause it isn't all your saying now
    But I hope I'm invited for the ride
    just in case we end our test of wills
    Yes I've seen much stranger things in my
    days......


    [cadenza]
    Preaching still...........
    Preaching the converted in our test of
    wills................
