Write these words for a lost inspiration
Ain't that a barrel full of laughs
Work you arse to put the crumbs on the table
But they fall hungry on your lap
Whatever became of the seed
That once grew in your hand
And the dirt where you fingers did bleed
Has all rushed to your head

[Chorus:]
But you won't
No, no, no you won't
You won't make a fool out of me

Purse strings break, they're not made of elastic
And I'm no puppet on your shelf
You won't sing when this singer is songless
I'm not a notch on your fat belt
For green is the heart of your greed
That much I can tell
You may think you're the captain of me
But I'm your coffin ship from Hell

[Chorus:]

So I'll drag these bones across the Earth
With the dead I'll never sleep
Where I'll haunt you for a thousand years
Without breath you'll never breathe
For an empty shell your grave will fill
Alas for evermore

[Chorus:]

Bite the hand that fed you for nothing
Get that monkey off your back
Empty lies bring false celebrations
That's not my meaning of success
For green is the heart of your greed
That much I can tell

[Chorus:]
