Knocking At The Door


Knockin' At The Door (92 bpm)

Politicians' lies
They always try
When they cast their eye
Like dapper John offering apple pie
Them know none of they cause the rot inside While abetting the nation's ritual heist.

It angers me to see
Such fools to fall
For such fools as these
Who try and rewrite our history Now they're pumping their Fists in victory
Engineering economic slavery Betting on greed & Jesus

(heaven help us all)

The fix is in
Milk-cow begins to bleed
Lo, as she dies Reckoning slowly
History of flies
Scene repeats
And it's enough just once To feel sick inside Derivative theory
Plain people trapped
By a factory farm's Financial arm,
Again and again
Fattened maggots Feeding upon hungry men.

Derivative theory (knocking at the door) Derivative theory, plain people (knocking at the door)..Derivative theory, plain people trapped, (knocking at the door)..etc.

..slapped masses
Knocked on their asses
Thrown out of houses
And meantime
Hotshot upper crust doing just fine.

poor people - poor people
poor people - poor people shut-out people - shut up people hurtin' people - hurtin' people working people - working people sold-out soldier - sold-out soldier good people - good people knocking at the door. (x 3)
