What you do is what you are
And wishing upon distant stars
Won't improve the hole you're in
Won't absolve your deepest sin

      Eb5          F5             Bb5              C5
  But action is no gift from some covert and lofty god
       Eb5           F5              C5    Bb5  C5
  It's dependent and weighty all the same
            Eb5   F5           Bb5         C5
  And it is oh so easy just to keep to yourself
                  Eb5       F5    Bb5 C5    Bb5  C5
  But then you're at the mercy of imbeciles

Now I didn't make up the rules
But clearly we are led by fools
It is wise to know their ways
So you know how not to behave

  But sometimes we find ourselves in desperate need
  And we look to those with privilege and power
  It's then we learn compassion sits inert on their shelves
  We're at the mercy of imbeciles

  No actions is no gift from some masked spirit in the sky
  It's reducible to flesh, mind, and bone
  And it is oh so easy just to keep to yourself
  But then you're at the mercy of imbeciles
