Walking through the badlands taking in the scenery
The beasts are salivating to the fresh scent of the weak
They're moving in with a penetrating grin
Sliding through your backdoor while your babies are asleep

We're walking blind with wool over our eyes
Now if we don't think about it, will it go away?

Taking what they want, not what they need
Hang us out to dry so the wolves can feed
See it in their eyes, filled up with greed
All stuck sucking on the end of this pyramid scheme

Running through this nightmare but I'm wide awake
I hear the footsteps in the dark and it's more than I can take
They're rising up from the depths to fill their cup
Never to the top because it never is enough

They want it all no matter what the cost is
If we don't think about it, will it go away?

Taking what they want, not what they need
Hang us out to dry so the wolves can feed
See it in their eyes, filled up with greed
All stuck sucking on the end of this pyramid scheme
Of this pyramid scheme
Of this pyramid scheme
Scheme, whatcha gonna do about it?

We're walking blind with wool over our eyes
Now if we don't think about it, will it go away?

Taking what they want, not what they need
Hang us out to dry so the wolves can feed
See it in their eyes, filled up with greed
All stuck sucking on the end
We're all stuck sucking on the end of this pyramid scheme
Of this pyramid scheme
Of this pyramid scheme
Scheme, whatcha gonna do about it?
'bout it, 'bout it, 'bout it, 'bout it?

    General CommentThis is obviously about pyramid schemes, haha.
    People are getting other people to do their dirty work,to take advantage of everyone else, and we're on the bottom of it.
    Their taking advantage of us,
    and we ignore whats going on.
