lyrics

In all the time that I’ve been here
I never dreamt I’d see
The millions of people live so casually
And the airwave’s voice bids that we rejoice
Because the answers are in our tests
And the T.V. screens (at least the one’s I’ve seen)
Will demand a pound of flesh… a pound of flesh.

In the short time that I’ve been here
I never dreamt I’d see
The millions of people die so causally.
And the contract between life and death
Seems stained into our skin
So the contact point of our first steps
Will confine us to our kin… to our kin.

And the bomb-safe’s gate swings way too late
As the killing blow is dealt
And when the lips of men from their beds repent
It’s not really how they felt.

Because the keen ones know that the rich ones owe
Their fortunes to the dead.
And that the cash that flows from the dead mans bones
Is twice the bounty on his head
The bounty on his head.
