Don't pay 'em what they're asking
for it's way too much.
Cause they lack the eye and the common touch.
And don't you discount your blessings
and watch 'em bust.
As a dream decays so can a heart rust.
Cause what it all boils down to
is they ain't like you.
You better watch that wandering eye it'll bruise.
Before you know it you're stuck
in someone else's shoes.
You're shooting blanks and
joinin' ranks with fools.
Cause some sheep don't need
a reason to follow the rules.
But you're the blackest one
And when it's said and done
Did you have your fun?
What did you pay?
And did you save the brain
In your head and the heart in your chest.
And the eagle eye, and the word on your breath?
Did you trade in your soul and
the burdens of youth?
Did you lie to yourself with a rich man's truth?
And do you believe 'em boy,
and the methods there that they employ?
And does it make sense to you,
the crooked hoops they jump through?
A victim of circumstance, you went
to work and you learned to dance.
But is dancing what you want to do?
