Now, he's hell-bent for destruction, he's afraid and confused
And his brain has been mismanaged with great skill
All he believe are his eyes
And his eyes, they just tell him lies.
Well, you're on your own, you always were
In a land of wolves and thieves
Don't put your hope in ungodly man
Or be a slave to what somebody else believes.
They took a clean-cut kid
And they made a killer out of him
That's what they did.
Everybody's asking why he didn't adjust
All he ever wanted was somebody to trust.
They took his head and turned it inside out
He never did know what it was all about.
He had a steady job, he joined the choir
He never did plan to walk the high wire.
