stay the same you’re gonna throw it all away play the game the bottom’s where you’re gonna lay pick a sound, do it right same old message every night weren’t we promised more? get in line glorify monotony do your time crucify integrity listen up, hear me now this has got to stop weren't we promised more? I’d rather fucking hang myself
I plead the 5th it’s all I could do you left a trace DEGENERATE I signed the bill and covered your name oh, what a waste DEGENERATE is blood really thicker than the water you drink? and was I your first choice or did you have to think? swearing on the book, you didn’t know it was wrong well it made you filthy rich, I guess you knew all along your god complex, I’m not impressed I saw what you became I can play the perfect part in your game (hey man what's really going on here?) it’s not my place to critique any words that you say (I’m not sure but it’s really seeming unclear) the power of the pen is mightier than the sword: an arms race but don’t you stick your fucking check in my face think about it, could it be you? if the tables were to turn, would you know what to do? looked me in the eyes, stabbed me right in the back I was in the courtroom while you were counting your stacks your god complex, I’m not impressed I saw what you became obviously running out of patience let’s just face it tables turned I know you couldn’t take it let’s just face it we’re relatives, but we can’t relate I’m nothing like you and I never will be burn in hell

coming home working late driving tired asked me where I was going then said I was lying what could I do? from the big bad boys in blue pulled me real close and then told me put your hands up high in the air or we’ll shoot you right in ya head don’t speak not a sound you’ll be dead in the ground on the hood face smashed up like a rat called for backup, who knows when he’ll attack one word, threw me right to the floor he said, “Don't make me tell you again boy” you’re all a bunch of murderers
power to all the people rise on up to stop the evil heard it once now here's the sequel we must stop to fight the evil power look into your brother's eyes the man in the street who's terrorized day in day out by the civilized because we can't admit the lies of power Molotov’s and bricks and rocks baseball bats Kalashnikovs Knives and ropes and riot shields Razor wire and mortar shells When this is what your power brings These are a few of my favourite things. listen to your sister's screams force fed by your American dreams the politicians scam and scheme destroy the system by the seams with power fight the lies that breed injustice fight the lies no hero saved us fight to live the words you practice fight to give the people back power 28 years the evil power still remains
all the press what a mess it went sour found a cheat nothing more than a coward lock him up lock him up they yelled louder the blind will lead the blind right off the… I don’t wanna make amends I don't wanna to be your friend. I just want to burn it down BURN IT DOWN! speak out or be part of the problem stand up, got the numbers to stop them what’s the value of truth does it come with a price? so I suggest that we all burn it down stash the cash rob the purse hide it under bucket seats in the car of your mother’s big shot big shot they called your brother he came to bail you out but crashed into the side of the…. I don't wanna bring you love I don't wanna kiss and hug I just wanna let you down BURN IT DOWN! speak out or be part of the problem stand up, got the numbers to stop them what’s the value of truth does it come with a price? and I've been trying to get it right got off with some minor offenses a quick death never heard a confession how much guilt do you feel? does it cut like a knife? so I suggest that we all burn it down you’re pitiful you’re cynical from high on top your pedestal and if I had my way, I swear I’d spit at you you’re out of luck, without a buck guess you weren’t rich enough the papers say you’ll rot away you ungrateful fuck BURN IT DOWN!
