It's been a long time
Now it's time to get your bubble burst
Things are bad enough in this world
Why do you have to make them worse?
Day after day, you just gotta get it

So sick and tired of your bitching and complaining
So long you've been oppressed while others lives are
Want reparations, you're needy and deserving
Can't understand why some are served while you're
doing the serving
Anything but responsibility

Where's my slice?
I want more than equal rights
I want everything for free!

You waste your time concerned with what others are
You want a revolution to start the tables turning
A demonstration to make a better nation
We'll spend the day protesting all the problems that
we're facing
Anything but face reality
Where's my slice...

Your brilliant theory
how the world owes you a living
You'll take away from others
the things they should be giving
They own the pie and you want your share
Whoever told you life was fair?
You were dealt your hand - now play it

Where's my slice...

    General CommentJunkie is righ.
    From an interview back in the early 90's:

    "I wrote it about a friend of mine named Eric, this peace punk guy who lives on welfare lines and government checks. He doesn’t do shit and he’s always complaining about how the world owes him a living. He just drinks. He’s always going to demonstrations and complaining. The guy’s a bum. He’s living off the system, but he doesn’t do anything. The song is about him. You can also insert different groups of people into the lyrics and it fits in a general way. I suppose you could put women in it, poor people, some minorities, basically anybody that hasn’t gotten a fair shake. A whole bunch of different groups will fit. But I wrote it about a guy named Eric."

    General CommentCool, never knew that it was actually about a particular person. Either way, they song also speaks volumes about the negative side of social services; that some people simply use them as a permanent crutch rather, milking the government titty rather than minimizing their dependence.

    Best line in the song:

    "You'll take away from others
    the things they should be giving"

    General CommentThe song does not apply to all groups who are currently receiving "equal rights" protections under the law...that would presume that NOfx are against those sorts of things...looking at their ideological make-up i just don't think that is the case.

    Junkie has it right...the song is refering to a specific kind of person (or specific person in this instance)...the type of person who not only complains about the "system" but also abuses it.
