rate me

Where are all the stupid people from? <br>And how'd they get to be so dumb? <br>Bred on purple mountain range<br>Feed amber waves of grains<br>To lesser human beings, zero feelings<br><br>Blame it on<br>Human nature, mans destiny (mans destiny)<br>Blame it on the greediocracy (greediocracy)<br>Fear of god<br>The fear of change<br>The fear of truth<br><br>Add the bill of rights, subtract the wrongs<br>There's no answers<br>Memorize and sing star spangled songs<br>When the questions<br>Aren't ever asked<br>Is anybody learning from the past? <br>We're living in united stagnation<br><br>Father what have I done? <br>I took that 22<br>A gift to me from you<br>To bed with me each night<br>Kept it clean<br>Polished it well<br>Cherished every cartridge, every shell<br><br>Down, by the creek, under brush, under dirt<br>There's a carcass of my second kill<br>Down, by the park, under stone, under pine<br>There's a carcass of my brother william<br>Brother where, have you gone to? <br>I swear, I never thought I could<br>I see so many times<br>They told me to shoot straight<br>Don't pull the trigger, squeeze<br>That will insure a kill<br>A kill is what you want<br>A kill is why we breed<br><br>The christians love their guns<br>The church and nra<br>Pray for their salvations<br>Prey on the lower faiths<br><br>The story book's been read<br>And every line believed<br>Curriculum's been set<br>Logic is a threat<br>Reason searched and seized<br><br>Jerry spent some time in michigan<br>A twenty year vacation, after all he had a dime<br>A dime is worth a lot more in detroit<br>A dime in california, a twenty dollar fine<br><br>Jerry only stayed a couple months<br>It's hard to enjoy yourself while bleeding out the ass<br>Asphyxiation is simple and fast<br>It beats seventeen fun years of being someones bitch<br><br>Don't think (stay)<br>Drink your wine (home)<br>Watch the fire burn (be)<br>His problems not mine (safe)<br>Just be that model citizen<br><br>I wish I had a schilling<br>(for each senseless killing)<br>For every senseless killing<br>I'd buy a government<br>America's for sale<br>And you can get a good deal on it<br>(a good deal on it)<br>And make a healthy profit<br>Or maybe, tear it apart<br>Start with assumption<br>That a million people are smart<br>Smarter than one<br><br>Serotonin's gone<br>She gave up, drifted away<br>Sara fled, thought process gone<br>She left her answering machine on<br>The greeting left spoken sincere<br>Messages no one will ever hear<br><br>Ten thousand messages a day<br>A million more transmissions lay<br>Victims of the laissez faire<br>Ten thousand voices, a hundred guns<br>A hundred decibels turns to one<br>One bullet, one empty head<br>Now with serotonin gone<br><br>The man who used to speak<br>Performs a cute routine<br>Feel a little patronized<br>Don't feel bad<br>They found a way inside your head<br>And you feel a bit misled<br>It's not that they don't care, yeah<br><br>The television's put a thought inside your head<br>Llike a barry manilow, jingle<br>I'd like, to teach the world to sing<br>In perfect harmony<br>A symphonic blank stare, yeah<br>It doesn't make you care (make you care)<br>Not designed to make you care (make you care)<br>They're betting you won't care (you won't...)<br><br>Place a wager on your greed<br>A wager on your pride<br>Why try to beat them when, a million others tried? <br><br>We are the whore<br>Intellectually spayed<br>We are the queer<br>Dysfunctionally raised<br><br>One more pill to kill the pain<br>One more pill to kill the pain<br>One more pill to kill the pain<br>Living through conformity<br><br>One more prayer to keep me safe<br>One more prayer to keep us warm<br>One more prayer to keep us safe<br>There's gonna be a better place<br><br>Lost the battle, lost the war<br>Lost the things worth living for<br>Lost the will to win the fight<br>One more pill to kill the pain<br><br>Na na na na na<br>La na na na na<br>Na na na na na<br>Na na na na na<br><br>The going get tough, the tough get debt<br>Don't pay attention, pay the rent<br>Next of kins pay for your sins<br>A little faith should keep us safe<br><br>Save us<br>The human, existence<br>Is failing, resistance<br>Essential, the future<br>Written off, the odds are<br>Astronomically against us<br>Only moron and genius<br>Would fight a losing battle<br>Against the super ego<br>When giving in is so damn comforting<br><br>And so we go, on with our lives<br>We know the truth, but prefer lies<br>Lies are simple, simple is bliss<br>Why go against tradition when we can<br>Admit defeat, live in decline<br>Be the victim of our own design<br>The status quo, built on suspect<br>Why would anyone stick out their neck? <br><br>Fellow members<br>Club we've got ours<br>I'd like to introduce you to our host<br>He's got his, and I've got mine<br>Meet the decline<br><br>We are the queer<br>We are the whore<br>Ammunition<br>In the class war<br>We are worker<br>We love our queen<br>We sacrifice<br>We're soilent green<br><br>We are the queer<br>We are the whore<br>Ammunition<br>In the class war
