lyrics

Lyrics:

I don’t understand all these names you gave me / Or the little games you invent to save me / While I hide out in your safe / Night and daytime you come borrow me

I plant a little seed so you get discouraged / I can make a man feel like his hurt is all he’ll feel in this world / And there’s so many men in this world

I’m the root of all this city’s evil / And the one who’s feeding all your people / While I fall down and inflate / And when you are sleeping I stay awake

And people curse my name/ For all they’ve got is not all they want / People bite my face and place their bets on my tails or head

I’m the little coin that sends you working / Sweat along your brow until you’ve fallen / And you lay down in the earth
When you’ve quit talking / I’m still alive!
