The Lyrics

You may want to yoke in your buddies, in Berlin or in Paris
You may like to take a risk, handing out the poisoned chalice
You may be the most powerful politico in this whole goddamn world
You may be a moneymaker such that no-one has ever heard

Cos you only wanna save somebody, yes indeed
You only wanna save somebody
You may be Satan incarnate or a tinpot God’s Messiah
But you always want to save somebody

You might be a drone commander killing kids in rage
You might be crushing Afghan opium or young Iraqis in a cage
You may be a smooth operator or a high-grade Mafioso
They may call you Da Vinci or they may call you Bozo

But you only wanna save somebody, yes indeed
You only wanna save somebody
You may be Satan incarnate or a tinpot God’s Messiah
But you always want to save somebody

You may be a wonk stormtrooper, you might be a whining jerk
You may get all your dollars from a sycophantic media TV network
You may be Satan incarnate or a tinpot God’s Messiah
But you always want to save somebody

You may call me Pinko, or a second-grade Alinsky
You may call me Chomsky’s dupe, or a knock-off Ted Kaczynski
You may say I’m like Ayers, you may say I’m talking balls
But you’re the lord of warfare, your generals answer to your call

Cos you always wanna save somebody, yes indeed
You always wanna save somebody
You may be Satan incarnate or a tinpot God’s Messiah
But you only want to save somebody,
Save somebody!
