TORI AMOS lyrics - Benjamin

TORI AMOS
"Benjamin"

Benjamin
Science whiz
My computer bat friend
Tell me where
Tell me when
I'll meet you ninja Ben

At the back of the record store
With tapes you secure
Prove the extent of their viciousness
As they purge our scientists
My computer bat hunts for facts

Campaigns
Funded by
The fossil fuel industry
How many of us
Will they own
To give them global mastery

Sucking hydrocarbon from the ground
Those pimps in Washington
Are selling the rape of America
As they attack Juliana

Now there is no avoiding
Necessity resurrecting herself
And her daughters
Who will never be bought
Not by the gods
Not by the men on the hill
Thread of life
Measured quick
Spin
Then
Snip

Benjamin
Science whiz
My computer bat friend
Tell me where
Tell me when
I'll meet you ninja Ben
Tell me where
Tell me when
I'm in your army Ben
