There's something wrong with mass consumption
Why do we want what we don't need
Alcohol burn it clean, asphalt methampphetamin
Will make it seem alright, It's gonna make it seem alright
Living in the hunger underground
Some people say I got a problem with authority so
What if I do man it beats relinquished control

Philthy Phil Philantropist
You've taken when you shoulda give away
Philthy Phil you gave to us
We cannot repay

There's something grand about being nothing
There's something lame about being grand
Alcohol squirtin gun, don't want no holidays in the sun
That's me not bein you, that's just me not bein you
Either part of the solution or the problem
Can there not be a middle ground for just the anybody
Replace Superman with Joe ordinary

Philthy Phil Philanderer
You've taken when you shoulda give away
Philthy Phil you gave to us
We cannot repay
