Feast

While you squabble
your men up high
Down below
the decades go by

You say your righteous
you feel us all
But we’re just a slogan
as you seek a windfall

We are stats 
for fat cats 
to rattle off 
in their campaign hats

We are plans 
for also rans 
to boast about 
to their adoring fans

We are brothers and sisters 
and mamas and dads
Yet to you all we are 
Is one of your fads

While you feast on American pie 
We are spoon fed a hollow lie

While you feast on American pie
The years out here just keep going by

While you feast on American pie 
Me and mine are left to die

While you feast on American pie
We are spoon fed a hollow lie

You want money 
You want fame
The human side 
is just a game

Your quest for power 
is so myopic
You don’t want to hear 
about any other topic

Money and fame dedicate  
everything you do
There’s nothing more
Aint that right Boo? True.

Brutes in suits
you’re like snakes before flutes
Upon our necks 
We can feel your boots

We are not an end 
we are only a means
You pose for pictures here
While your housemaid cleans

While you feast on American pie 
We are spoon fed a hollow lie

While you feast on American pie
The years out here just keep going by

While you feast on American pie 
Me and mine are left to die

While you feast on American pie
We are spoon fed a hollow lie

While you feast on American pie

Uh While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

While you feast on American pie

You pledge, you boast, 
you promise the most
But you’re always a guest, 
you’re never the host

From a distance you cry 
from a podium you speak
You don’t come close 
cause you know that you’re weak

Either plant real trees 
or stop with the tease
Get off of your knees 
and stop charging fees

We don’t want your sleaze
it’s a fucking disease
Here are the keys
come inside if you please.

While you feast on American pie 
We are spoon fed a hollow lie

While you feast on American pie
The years out here just keep going by

While you feast on American pie 
Me and mine are left to die

While you feast on American pie
We are spoon fed a hollow lie
