seeking out an honest living soul
lifting every eyelid for
meaning to meaningless
searching through this
from the bottom
we sink to the bottom

eat. work. shit. sleep.
awake. arise.
awake. arise
listen as the chorus marching
this old man with hat in hand
we built this city on debts and booze
twelve years of debt and i'll be paying it off
i'll pay the price
and every jaded hero clings to his worth,
but i decline

eat. work. shit. sleep.

marching union roars like a lion
just said it:

sharp like an astronaut but dull as a rock
damn right ; we got a problem now
the voice of god comes through the morning alarm

a fire and brimstone hilarity mass
by cutting of the strings we used to pull
to bring us back to better days
'til king and queen pass out drunk off their power,

awake. arise.
awake. arise

strangers, at the bottom
