Lyrics

There's no earthly way of knowing
What was in your heart
When it stopped going
The whole world shook
A storm was blowing through you

Waiting for God to stop this
And up to your neck in darkness
Everyone around you was corrupted
Say somethin'

There's no dignity in death
To sell the world your last breath
They're still fighting over
Everything you left oh

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And no one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space oh

Through your eyes
The world was burning
Please be gentle
I'm still learning
You seemed to say
As you kept turning up

They poisoned you with compromise
At what point did you realise
Everybody loves your life
But you ahahh

Special agent for the man
Through Watergate and Vietnam
No one really gave a damn
Do you think the CIA did

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

And no one learned from your mistake
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space ooooohh

I saw you standing at the gates
When Marlon Brando passed away
You had that look upon your face
Advertising space

No one learned from your mistakes
We let our profits go to waste
All that's left in any case
Is advertising space ooooohh

I've seen your daughter
Man she's cute
I was scared but I wanted to
Boy she looks a lot like you
