You gotta beat em
Beat beat em up
You gotta beat em
Beat beat em up
You gotta beat em
Beat beat em up
Beat em up
Beat em up
You gotta beat em
You gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
You gotta beat em
You gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
You gotta beat em
Beat em up

This life is a numbers game,
The rich the ive, the poor get blamed
The rich are happy , and they're mean,
The poor - just obscene...

You gotta beat em
You gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
I gotta beat em
I gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
You gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up
I gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up
I gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up
Beat em up
Beat em up

Nice girl with a heart of gold
A little naive, a little bold
Knocked' up tossed' out and abondoned,
Now she's living on random

You gotta beat em
You gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
She got beat up
She got beat up
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
You gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up
You gotta beat em
Beat em up

Mom and dad worked and saved,
Good and honest everyday
For they're sweat , what did they get ?
An old age home and a medical debt

You gotta beat em
You gotta beat em
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
They got beat up
They got beat up
You know they're cheatin' anyhow
You gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up
I gotta beat em
Beat beat beat em up

Come on'
Come on'

We live in a machine, machine,
We live in a machine, machine,
We can't keep up with a machine

(chorus)
