lyrics

WINGS TO CAIN

Ain't you gonna get yourself a piece of the action,
pointin' them cameras in the other direction,
Suckin, that money and glory,
just keep pushin' that official story,

And Abel's blood is calling all
avenging ears in vain,
you little birds ain't tellin'
'cuz you sold your wings to Cain

So tell me how does it feel, now,
to be the ministry of spiel, now,
joinin' that royal class, now,
so the chumps can look up at your ass, now,

And don't it feel so good
to finally get your due,
us commoners are all so quick
to clear that line for you

That heady rush, all that glitz,
you've always wanted this,
lord, how can we blame ya,
for lettin' that rider tame ya

Lookin' out from your Caddy,
streets are lookin' pretty ratty,
what about where you came from,
since you started gettin' you some,
but, to speak the truth to power
don't interest you today
but you ain't one of us folks
no more, anyway

But i'll bet you smile so big
when Master pets your head,
run, tell all the other doggies,
turn their faces red
