lyrics

I’m not a story teller, I’ve got no flair for fictions.
I write what I know, and I have a few addictions.
I fall in love so fast, and slowly pushed them all away.
I trust my fellow man, but I don’t trust my society.

They use our minds against us to profit from the pain.
Theres a million empty churches promising to do the same,
while Jesus sleeps upon the steps of the house that bears his name.
So the preacher calls the cops and they lock him up again.
And he says to the prisoners “at least here they will let you in.”

The poor can’t afford to get the help they need, because health care is a system that runs on fear and greed.
Insurance towers keep on growing and they need to be fed.
If you can’t afford the coverage you might as well be dead.
Yes, we’ve got to outperform the previous 3 months, increase shareholder value, and pay those at the top 800 times the wages of those who do the real work.
Hey we are just the middle men thats just the way it works.

Its cozy at the top, work hard to get there too, just take from the many and give it to the few.
Now get down on your knees and shine my pretty black shoes.
Rub them good and hard and if your lucky I might tip you.

I’m not a story teller, I’ve got no flair for fictions.
I write what I know, and I have a few addictions.
I fall in love so fast, and slowly pushed them all away.
I trust my fellow man, but I don’t trust my society.
