Dog Eat Dog
Dog eat dog It's dog eat dog, I'm just waking up The dove is in the dungeon And the white-washed hawks pedal hate and call it love Dog eat dog Holy hope in the hands of Snakebite evangelists and racketeers And big wig financiers Dog eat dog On prime time crime the victim begs Money is the road to justice And power walks it on crooked legs Prime, time, crime Holy hope in the hands of Snakebite evangelists and racketeers And big wig financiers Where the wealth's displayed Thieves and sycophants parade And where it's made, The slaves will be taken Some are treated well In these games of buy and sell And some like poor beast Are burdened down to breaking Dog eat dog! It's dog eat dog, ain't it flim flam man Dog eat dog, you can lie, cheat, skim, scam Beat'em any way you can Dog eat dog You'll do well in this land of Snakebite evangelists and racketeers You could get to be A big wig financier Land of snap decisions Land of short attention spans Nothing is savored Long enough to really understand In every culture in decline The watchful ones among the slaves Know all that is genuine will be Scorned and conned and cast away Dog eat dog People looking, seeing nothing Dog eat dog People listening, hearing nothing Dog eat dog People lusting, loving nothing Dog eat dog People stroking, touching nothing Dog eat dog Knowing nothing Dog eat dog
