The headline said you were caught
Heard a rumor that you were bought
You hurt a lot of people that's for sure
But we can overlook anything we can't ignore

This time you were nailed
We installed the patch but it failed
So here's a proposition—please hear us out
We're gonna uncover what you're all about

Sign your name on the seventh page
Be a 00-agent of the digital age
Changing the way the world spins is our job

Someone said getting knocked in the head
Will teach you right from wrong
That sounds like a good fit for a theme song

Open up that backroom door
Reverse engineer your doomsday plan
Tell us it's a hoax in language we understand

Our team leaders can show you how
To separate right from wrong
We knew it was you
Blowing bubbles in the holes all along

Maybe it's time to look around
They're gonna grind you into the ground
You can bury ambition and end up poor
Or put twenty large aside at the end of our tour

Now's the time to come clean
Dismantle your digital scream
Be the next megamogul…keep the girls safe
There's no better way to get yourself laid

Call me a misfit and threaten my job
But if I needed a lecture I'd call my mom
This is a pretty slim package…
Start greasin my palm!

I'm not what you think so don't even try
You'll never teach me right from wrong
Here's my wish list—you'll notice it's ten pages long

My world is a sacred place
My views are in focus and highly evolved
So what makes you think I'm for sale?
My tail wag like a dog?

You can drop the pop psychology
You don't really know right from wrong
And now it's much too late
This ain't where I belong

Someone said getting knocked in the head
Will teach you right from wrong
That's a helluva good fit for a theme song

My mind is a scary place
But my views are in focus now and highly evolved
Hey you're convinced it's just a game
Let's end this call!

I may be far from heaven
But I'm right where I belong

You'll never catch me
I'm just not for sale
Not now…not ever!
