Paint It Black – Shell Game Redux lyrics

Sweep out the cobwebs & recalibrate the
Currency. They're robbing us blind.
They're trimming the fat, and counting every
Calorie. Can't you see that they're robbing
Us blind? Inveterate invertebrates ingest and
Regurgitate. They are robbing us blind. There's
No convincing explanation for the crumbs on
Your dinner plate.

Sharpen the knives and sugarcoat the medicine.
Consult your astrologist and be sure to tip the
Weathermen.
I know we promised you a dividend...

They steal the bread from our mouths. They
Steal the air from our lungs.
And they steal the ground from under our
Feet. They will try to steal the words from our
Tongues.

Don't let them.
