Such assertive friendliness is so subtly rude
A drop of suicide just to lighten up the mood
It is gourmet cooking but you call it soul food
The only reason you got away with cooking it, dude..
Cover up the bodies with sod and say it should
Be as welcome to the soil as a city made of wood
And like the spirit of the little engine that could
If you want to do evil you're going to have to make it look good...
Well, everywhere is freedom when everyone is dead
Capital slides best upon streets are painted red
You made a people's revolution that all the people fled
You know healthy flowers don't grow in potters made of lead
The place you planted your seed is the soil where your victims bled..
Cover up the traces of your profits and it should
Mislead everyone to think they got all that they could
Now the rich are calling their community "tha hood"
If you want to do evil you're going to have to make it look good..
Fight the right war and administer the wrong one
Both are spilling blood under the very same sun
Keep invading territory 'cause you make it look fun
While you'll sick your bloodhounds on the scent of anyone
A career as a rapist and you're dressed up as a nun
No differentiation between the word and the gun...
If you cover up the faces of your enemies it should
Leave open interpretations as to who really could
Be so self-indulgent to make Kansas look like Hollywood
You want to do evil you're going to have to make it look good
Capitalize on the lies your predecessor sold
Think your shit don't stink because it's made out of gold
Stay alive by selling bodies to the rich and the old
Who leave their mark on your ass in the form of deadly mold
On the lips of Mother Mary "whore" is a status so bold
Conniving everybody made out to be your priesthood
Think that you can like just enough that it should
Cloak your criminality as a cross made out of wood
If you want to do evil you're going to have to make it look good.
