While moonlighting in the service the bourgeoi-lite
I caught lunch with the party of pseudo-environmental executives
because I heard they'd pick up the bill
and then the billionaire took a seat at the head of the table
wiped his ass with the dignity of the Polynesian waiter
who'd only been misheard!
but was subject to abuse
and I got caught
Now I wahahanowahanowahnowahnawowowahnmnamnamnammana-ammnamna-amna owawowoa
and I got caught
got caught
the price of the price of procedure of what I do
but forgot the comforts of leisure
on the few
the charts, the facts, and the figures
only lack of recognition can we credit our leaders
and the conflict lies with you
all the waiters of the world please spit in the soup
and the billionaires might finally get what's coming
when the dishwashers of the world climb up to their boss
then the ladder that we build that they started on top
might fall because it rests on you
and all the shit that you go through
just to stay alive
mnamnamnammana-ammnamna-amna
thousand miles away another conflict I've been through
and the innocents you depend on
when the victim is you
and the tendency to justify
a law that's flawed and I got caught
I was caught
Arrested by company. What I knew
knew not I guess there's only something
there was a girl a cop
that wouldn't even talk to me
because I got caught
and the conflict lies in you
all the waiters of the world please spit in the soup
and punk kids please
think about what your doing
when the dish washers of the world all climb up to their boss
well then the ladder that they built if might finally fall
because you know it all rests on you
and the shit that you go through just to stay alive!

    General CommentWhile moonlighting in the service the bourgeois-lite
    I caught lunch with the party of pseudo-environmental executives
    because I heard they'd pick up the bill
    and then the billionaire took his seat at the head of the table
    wiped his ass beneath the Polynesian waiter

    when the dishwashers of the world climb (?) up to their boss
    then the ladder that we build that they started at top
    might fall because it rests on you

    Arrested by my company. What I knew
    knew not I guess there was only something
    to do with a girl, a cop,

    when the dishwashers of the world all climb (?) up to their boss
    well then the latter that they built it might finally fall
    because you know it all rests on you
