lyrics

what’s keeping everyone
from responding in kind
beaten to death in a parking lot
or lifeless on a train
in a plainly mercantilist trade
where your loss is steadfastly their gain
if you’ve got a bone to pick
if you have any complaints
you’ll have a comfortable spot
to sit and wait
if you have a larger agenda to serve
to walk in your own town
refusing to defer
head up, undeterred
there’s a grave with no name on it
there’s a grave with your name on it
in a cemetery city
where the checks and balances insure
that the fraternal brotherhood
of the assholes you grew up with
with a penchant for power
and the absurd
will continue to operate with impunity
