lyrics

hook

they tell me don’t fight for your life till the knife is gone
bleed inside out till the light comes on
barely made it through the night just to write this song
will you remember me when my only life is gone

verse 1

sometimes i feel i got no worth
like i’m less than dirt
ye it hurts watching people being erased from earth
sit and hear the clock tick thinking i’m next to burst
curst for the worst
though i speak here first
soon to be immersed in a presidential thirst
to reclaim a piece of earth
that was stolen at birth
measuring girth
no brain for activity burst
(i think it's the worst)
dividing up the moral then feast upon the images
white, blue, insidious
claim they read leviticus
bible belt botched by the code of the genesis
no freedom
apply cuffs then start snuff
another one bites the barrel of bullet dust

hook

they tell me don’t fight for your life till the knife is gone
bleed inside out till the light comes on
barely made it through the night just to write this song
will you remember me when my only life is gone
