Dillinger Four

Dillinger Four - Let Them Eat Thomas Paine lyrics

rate me

It抯 as simple as fear

As disturbing as hate

It's as fragile as humility

It's the way that we deal with what we truly feel about everything we see

Rally round a cage, or act your age

Like the old methods we scratched forever in a prison wall

We know what we can't ignore

But we don't seem to care at all

Rally round a cage, and don't make a fuss

Rally round a cage, who am I if I'm not aware that I'm one of us?

It's a question of trust

Rally round a cage

Cringe at the paper then place the blame on "these days"

As if we don't know what we've seen unless we view it on the big screen

A price paid in full for the conscience that lied

All the billboards in the world can't cover our eyes

I don't understand

Don't tread on me

But we act like we didn't know

Then kids shoot kids or community defies its role

Then it's everyone's fault except for anyone we might know

Tell me are the colors of the flag much prettier to see

When viewed from the requisite comfort of the knees?

We're the loyal little chorus still singing out "please"

I can't understand

Don't tread on me

One little

Two little

Three little pink slips four

Where family values are a value most can't afford

Rally round a cage to the new hit songs

Rally round a cage called "how could we be wrong"

Rally round a cage

C'mon do the goose step to a state-subsidized sing-along

With one side yanking a line called damage control

While groaning 'cause they felt that the national razor went dull

But the other is a place we call home

Where solidarity's seldom shown

Where taxes paid is like a spade to a dog with a thrift store bone

This isn't me

It couldn't be

This isn't me

It will never be
