Behind Enemy Lines – Gluttons Of Privilege lyrics

We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
As they rewrite the labor laws to subjugate the poor
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
By sering our lords on the factory floor
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
Shouldering the tax breaks for the politically affluent
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
Setting the groundwork for our own social displacement
Privilege: the birthright of the ruling class
Lavished in luxury (is never enough) with more to amass
Social conscience takes a backseat to profit
And their trickle-down policies (are never enough) never emit
The elite stuff themselves like pigs at the trough
While the scraps from their tables (are never enough) are tapering off
If you're born at the bottom life can be tough
But when you're on top of the world then it's never enough
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
As we take another step closer towards privatization
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
Blinded by the daily grind we miss the correlation
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
Lay off millions of workers to increase the stock market average
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
As they slaughter the workforce and dine on the carnage
Privilege: the birthright of the ruling class
Lavished in luxury (is never enough) with more to amass
Social conscience takes a backseat to profit
And their trickle-down policies (are never enough) never emit
The elite stuff themselves like pigs at the trough
While the scraps from their tables (are never enough) are tapering off
If you're born at the bottom life can be tough
But when you're on top of the world then it's never enough
Opening their checkbooks, buying and selling lives
Human dignity is sacrificed but the status quo survives
Stepping on the poor to lift profit margins higher
Gutting social programs to build empire after empire
Enslaved by the industrialists as opportunities falter
Standing on the ruins of those buried by the dollar
They insure that our standard of living will continue depleting
Because an unemployed workforce keeps the masses competing
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
As they export the job market with cut-throat ambition
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
We're baited in the retrace by this classist tradition
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
We're lost in the debris of a global plutocracy
We're all feeding the gluttons of privilege
Because we're all scavengers of a trickle-down economy
Privilege: the birthright of the ruling class
Lavished in luxury (is never enough) with more to amass
Social conscience takes a backseat to profit
And their trickle-down policies (are never enough) never emit
The elite stuff themselves like pigs at the trough
While the scraps from their tables (are never enough) are tapering off
If you're born at the bottom life can be tough
But when you're on top of the world then it's never enough
