lyrics

Living Proof (The System Works For Them)

The tree remembers what the axe forgets –
A culture tried to hitch-hike to Funky Town
but ended up on Rikers Isle
Yeah we can laugh about it,
laugh about it, laugh about it now.
(uncomfortably.)

A sick fixation on migration of the traumatized from
countries with death squads that you funded
now you act surprised
It's only natural somebody's gonna have to try
to sanctify by TV dy-no-mite

Cuz violence is as American as cherry pie
as syphilis and burning crosses in the night
as ouija boards and waterboards and dollar signs
the ones in your eyes...

Living Proof the system works
the system works for them
spend your hard-earned money
to help support their death machine

I can't believe the apathy
the Nazi sympathies...
enough analogies, I miss it
back when all the punks were singing:

"Living Proof the system works
the system works for them
spend your hard-earned money
to help support their death machine"
I can't believe we're still beneath
this corporatocracy
almost embarrassing to listen
now that all you hypocrites are singing...

Give me your zealots, opportunists
and their kidnap victims
Give me your cruelest
your most ruthlessly religious visions
your biggest suckers, motherfuckers
we've got land to pillage
your treaty-breakers,
oh, those natives?
simply burn the village

And now today, you wanna murder?
well we'll pay for college
You get impunity
We get whatever we can salvage
Can almost hear those white supremacist
founding fathers laughing bout it now
