lyrics

They're fighting in the streets
They're fighting on the TV
Did you learn to make a fist
Before you learned to speak?
And did you cut your teeth a little too soon?
The answer lies in your eyes
It lies in our wounds

The violence of man
The violence of the beast
The violence in your heart
Your violence for me
And the blood it runs by

The master comes to eat
The blood and the body
Now he's full of Christ
And the life of the party
He has a gun for you, he has a gun for me
He just asks that we all send him some money
All he really needs is a little more money...
