Ted Leo and The Pharmacists

"C.I.A."

Sometimes the rain upon the sea
Can make the gray look green to me
And when I'm into all that gray
I'll make the morning last all day

See, I've been down to New South Wales
Both my brothers been in jail
Ah, but my sister, she got free
Now she's across the great gray sea

Now I've been hard, too hard to find
But there's no paranoia in my mind
There have been no comrades dropping dimes
It's just I'm working overtime

And I know that in the end
I'll come clean to all my friends
'Cause we all know we all have sinned
And we all know we're going to again

And when I was late in checking in
I couldn't say where I'd been
Well, I bet you knew, 'cause you sometimes do
And here we go 'round again

See, Molly always knows just what to bring
When Reb's in town, she always rings
You want to know what Tommy has to say?
Is Terry feeling better these days?

You can ask, take a look
We're all pretty open books
What I stand for, I mostly stand behind
What I am, I mostly can't hide

And when we were late in getting in
We couldn't say where we'd been
So maybe you knew, like you sometimes do
I've got need to pretend

Ah, but C.I.A
Only you know what you've done
Oh, C.I.A
Only you know what you've done

My father works from 6 to 8
And he ain't given up his faith
And so I haven't given up myself
Though I sure could use a little help

Now it don't take the writing of a song
To tell you what I was doing in '01
But what I fear that I might never see
Is where you were back in '73

And why Mal, he ain't around
Or if Everado was ever found
Why Frankie says that history's race is run
When we all know it's just erased by those who've won

And when I was late in weighing in
I couldn't say where I'd been
And you thought you knew like you sometimes do
But you got it wrong again

Oh, but C.I.A
Only you know what you've done
Oh, C.I.A
Only you know what you've done

Oh, C.I.A
Only you know what you've done
Oh, C.I.A
Only you know what you've done

Only you know what you've done
Only you know what you've done
Only you know what you've done
Only you know what you've done
