lyrics

in the thick of it
can you preach it from your pulpit?
a hundred eyes staring back
but you play it as a fact

you broke this land
pretending that you didn't understand
when you're a man (a man)
you put your money where your mouth is

you don't need your hands up
keeping your demands up
in the channel surfing land of-

try to educate
oh, baby it's too late
don't wanna tell you what to think
you got here on your own

hypocritical
no problem stepping on their necks
face down can't see the culprit (the culprit)
you're always searching for a scapegoat

said "i am not a prophet,
powerless to stop it--
but i could stand to profit..."

that mountaintop
i'm at the bottom looking up
i'll reach it if i work hard enough
but that rope is all mine
(he works hard for the money / hard for the dime, yeah)

don't tread on me
the price of freedom is liberty
save us from the hand that tries to feed
but never save us from ourselves

fear is a commodity
not some new atrocity
dressing up and on T.V.

mission accomplished
we always get what we wanted
tilted tables
you play the game, but it's always in our favor
(it's always in our favor)

the holy son
sits atop his gilded throne
he's always looking out for me
Jesus saves, but cash is king

buying up the magistrate
layaway to legislate
heavy purses, paperweights

puppets on a gold string (a gold string)
six figures from your suffering (suffering)
we'll tell you what you're scared of
just keep our bellies full
