The Banality of Evil - Lyrics

I've got me a badge, a bright shiny badge
I'm painting the crest in yellow and blue
I've got me a club, an exclusive club
It doesn't include a place for you

Hey….hello neighbour
Hey….hello neighbour
Right you are

It's in the way that you walk
All of the changes, all the mistakes
In the demands you constantly make

It's in the way that you grieve all of the loss
You don't know when you're better off
Or at what cost
You've got it good

The Banality Of Evil

Benevolent mother, smother the child
The benefactors are in denial

Hey….hello neighbour
Hey….hello neighbour
Right you are

There was a time, not so long ago
I was master of everything I surveyed
Yes, there was a time
We did it my way
Well do things my way

Benevolent mother, smother the child
The perpetrators are in denial
The banality of evil

King of the castle
Room at the top
Off with their heads
Chop 'em off
The banality of evil

Benevolent mother, smother the child
The benefactors are in denial
The banality of evil

King of the castle
Room at the top
Off with their heads
Chop 'em off
Hey….hello neighbour

I don't believe in what you believe
You skin is filthy
And your gods don't look like god to me

But I want to touch you
Now that isn't right
No, that can't be right
But I want to touch you
You're leading me on I know it

Hey…

King of the castle
More room at the top
All sorts allowed
Now the gloves are off
Hey… hello neighbour

Benevolent mother, smother the child
The benefactors are in denial
The banality of evil

King of the castle
Room at the top
Off with their heads
Chop 'em off
The banality of evil

Benevolent mother, smother the child
The perpetrators are in denial
The banality of evil

King of the castle
Room at the top
Off with their heads
Chop 'em off
The banality of evil
