Covered in sinners and dripping with guilt,
Making your money from slime and from filth...
Parading your bellies in ivory towers,
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers
You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thieves in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!

See... what's ruling all our lives...
See... who's pulling strings...
See... what's ruling all our lives
See... who pulls the strings...!
I bet you won't fall on your face,
Your belly will hold you in place
The serpent is crawling inside of your ear,
He says you must vote for what you want to hear!
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're alright!
So pull yourself stupid and rub yourself blind!!

You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thieves in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick! Or be dead!
(Solo)

You got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven - The thief in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven - The thieves in your head...
Be quick! Or be dead!
Be quick!
