lyrics

there's a porn star in the palace
with an opal on her plate
there's a ship of fools with sharpened tools
and jackals at the gate
don't they look hungry
don't they look mean
don't think they'll wait to lick that asshole clean

with a pitchfork and a password
wallet and a chain
power losses, burning crosses
heaven hath no shame
like a white man frightened
don't he look weak
don't think they'll wait to make that asshole bleed

with a hundred dollar haircut
another ape sits on the throne
and he'll strut and piss and shake his fist
and shove shit down your throat
and you'll say thank you
can I have some more?
and there's another asshole lined up at the door

we're living in the shadow of a dream
we ain't never seen the light but we believe
there ain't no wrong or right
when you've got god on your side
just another asshole down on his knees

so kiss your daughter goodnight
and kiss your son goodbye
a girl can dream of being seen
but your boy is gonna die
and we'll watch it on tv
while we eat
don't think we'll wait to lick that asshole clean

we're shooting out the shadows in the streets
we ain't never seen the proof but we believe
there ain't no black or white
when you've got god on your side
just another asshole down on his knees
