the politician

baby you know how this is gonna do
one for me and one for you
baby you know how this is gonna do
you get something and i do too

if nobody knows tell me what's the crime
if nobody knows tell me what's the crime

mmm power and purpose are whiskey
i do nothing but the work of god
mmm power and purpose are whiskey
drink it straight then talk the talk

if nobody knows tell me what's the crime
if nobody knows tell me what's the crime

if nobody knows tell me what's the crime
between me and god tell me what's the crime

baby i stand before you a humbled man
pray pray pray pray for me
baby here before you i'm a humbled man
shame shame shame on me

if nobody knows tell me what's the crime
love the drinker, hate the wine
i will my penance, do my time
but if nobody knows tell me what's the crime
