Gimme some beer,
 Gimme some fear,
 Reality and fame

 Money from you
 Money for them
 Billions being made

You think you got a real deal
All you're buyin' is a fifth wheel
They gotcha by the ying yang
More dollar for the big bang

And when you have to have it
 Somehow you always find away,
You'll find a way
Then it becomes a habit 
You'll rob your late friend's grave 

It's sex, it's drugs,
And then we all fall down
Get hooked,
On life
Or join the underground 

It's oil, it's guns,
Bad guys we never see
It's war, dead sons,
Be all that you can be

Give it a spin
 Maybe you'll win
Nobody's gettin paid

 Lightin it up
 Shootin it up
Ya really should be afraid 

You're lookin' for a new chin
So they tighten up your old grin
All you wanna do is fit in
So they're gonna make you real thin

It's just enough to tease you
They nail you right between the eyes
Nail you right between the eyes

 Somehow it will disease you
 While you're lobotomized 

It's meds, it's feds,
Don't need no PhD's
Load down, those sounds,
We love our MP3's

It's cribs, it's cars
 Mercedes BNZ 
It's abs, it's carbs 
Stop super-sizing me!

It's sex, it's drugs,
And then we all fall down
Get hooked,
On life
Or join the underground 

It's crips, it's bloods 
It's pimped out S.U.V.'s
It's court, prime time
 Those lawyer S.O.B.'s

It's X, It's crack 
It's glass and A.D.D.
It's cool, it's wack
I'll pay you back

Your kick, you prick 
You get the first one free
You're cuffed, you're hooked,
You're hooked.
