Should have quit drinking, smoking, popping pills
Or whatever it was that kept you paying your bills
Should have headed for the hills
Should have been paying attention when they marched in
When they marched in someone must have been
Sleeping on the watch
When the soldier at the door smiled at me I caught a glimpse of his teeth
Like the walls of a city
Busted from the inside out
Should have realized that gift is poison, should have read the translation
Looked the present in the mouth
But you gloated you gloated
How you got so loaded
And you still got promoted
And you thought nobody noticed
How you got in charge
But now you’re in charge and it’s your responsibility
You’re in charge and it’s your responsibility
What you gonna do
The barbarians are at the gates
The barbarians are on line two
And no, they will not hold for you
Should have haggled with Hector for a hectare
Instead they broke your neck, your back
You got drawn and quartered and the quarters got halved
Brought the kids and that’s how we taught them math
How to add and subtract, devour and attack
It’s just ashes now.
You’re sucking on the ashes.
Your home’s burned to the ground
We should have voted, rioted, showed dissatisfaction somehow
But it’s too late for that now
I know all the old curses and what’s worse is
I ain’t afraid to go and throw one or two right at you
You better watch your back because back here we’re watching you
With your luck, your luck is coming right back at you
