Song Meaning
Verse 1
While you were sleeping
They came and took it all away
The lanes and the meadows
The places where you used to play
Verse 2
It was an inside job
By the well-connected
Your little protest
Summarily rejected
Verse 3
It was an inside job
Like it always is
Chalk it up to business as usual
Verse 4
While we are dreaming
This little island disappears
While you are looking the other way
They'll take your right to own your own ideas
Verse 5
And it's an inside job
Favors collected
Your trusted servants
Have left you unprotected
Verse 6
It was an inside job
Like it always is
Just chalk it up
To business as usual
Verse 7
You think that you're so smart
But you don't have a fucking clue
What those men up in the towers
Are doing to me and you
And they'll keep doin' it and doin' it
And doin' it and doin' it
And doin' it and doin' it
And doin' it and doin' it
Until we all wake up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Verse 8
I know what I've done wrong
I am acquainted with the night
I know how hard it is
To always walk out in the light
Verse 9
And it's an inside job
To learn about forgiving
It's an inside job
To hang on to the joy of living
Verse 10
They know the road by which you came
They know your mother's maiden name
And what you had for breakfast
And what you've hidden in the mattress
Verse 11
Insect politics
Indifferent universe
Bang your head against the wall
But apathy is worse
Verse 12
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
Yeh, yeah
Verse 13
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
Verse 14
It's an inside job
It's an inside job
