Lyrics
here little skunky huuh.
Allow them They just crawled out of the woodwork Allow them like The roach in the expensive suit and tie Allow them Failure has far too many fathers Allow them Succeed and you're an orphan 'til you die Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go.
Allow them They've got a pitch and a proposal Allow them The runaround might be a better term for it Allow them They think that they've got us at their disposal Allow them Sit still this won't hurt a bit Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go The day will come when there is nothing left to be afraid of Allow them They will destroy themselves if we allow them to.
It's such a cold,
cold whorey place There's more than rats running in the race And more than weasels calling in the plays These are cold,
cold whorey days Deception is an ax they wield There's wands to wave with every call they field This just is not us at all And if it is,
we've dropped the ball And we know who's not a carrier They hide behind a barrier That they'll destroy themselves somehow It's up to us if we allow They will destroy themselves if we allow them to.
Allow them Well now They're setting it in motion Unaware,
unaware where they are heading to right now Allow them We'll wait for the commotion That's bound to come it's Bound to come Bound to come if we allow Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go The day will come when there is nothing left to be afraid of Allow them They will destroy themselves if we allow them to Yeah They will destroy themselves if we allow them to They gotta destroy themselves if we allow them to.
alright.
