Whistle blowers, gotta get outta school
They don't want poets they want pigeons on a stool

You're examining fossils, defending criminals
I'm clock watching getting dumb
Photographic models, a house painted solace
I'm like [Incomprehensible] in the sun

And I give up raising your kids America
You treat 'em like an obligation
Welcome to the occupation

The devil's in the details, devil's in the details
He's got your gold watch and chain
The devil's in the details, devil's in the details
