If ever stuck in a hard position Prepare for lonely life Sometimes I wish I made other decisions Maybe then she could have been mine But I didn't Still, I got these songs To make me happy a few minutes at a time Don't ever make your own decisions It's an over-rated life Just another complaisant incision Don't forget to twist the knife And be sure to let it all bleed out And I'd be happy to know the blood was mine So here's to until we meet again I'll be drifting free While she slaves to him Don't need the cops or their rapist traditions That keep the poor overwhelmed with plight Well honed Their racist precision Tell me how they sleep at night Lets be sure to cause them piggies pain And I'd be happy to know they never kill again Mr. President The new condition Just another political elite His quick tongue keep you under submission There's no pie he'd rather eat He uses to poor just like the right Cuz we're the key, the vote, the stairway to the light So he walks on us just for that bit of extra cush While holding hands and laughing with George Bush The presidents are just puppets on a string And they hide em well so you and I believe That we're all free little boys and girls Who stay blind to the true owners of the world So here's to until we're free again I'll be slavin' away It's this dimension trend
I drive myself half insane Drinking every night to dull the pain But it's just the pain I create Leaning on a crutch that's gonna break You know as well as I do But you can't say much cuz you got one too And I can't make up my mind My decisions change from time to time Situations that I create My back can't support this monkeys weight You know as well as I do But you can't say much cuz you got one too I'll never find what I look for At least not at the Carver Liquor Store But I choose to drink so it's my fault Oh I'm gonna fall Should support myself with something else Oprah, Jesus Christ, pain pills
