"See Willy Fly By" as written by and Langford....
In this suburb of Babylon, they don't like to wait
They kill the messenger 'cos the message was late
Kill the child starving at the gate
Predicting the rain of the state

See Willy fly by, in the by and by
In the never you mind, in the wait and see
In the us and them, in the them and us, in the them and me
He's the exception that proves the rule
All your dreams are a lie
Now much will you swallow when Willy flies by?

There's something rotten round here, nobody forgot
All the rest on the bottom, white men still on the top
Walk and talk with Suzie, shoot to cripple and main
Shoot to kill again and again and again

Gonna build me a house, on a mountain so high
Sit in my car and stare up at the sky
The dream is a lie, put it to the test
One man rising up on the backs of the rest
On the backs of his family, all the duds and the Does
'Til the sun melts his wings and down we all go

See Willy fly by, in the by and by
In the never you mind, in the dollar store light
In the there you go, in the wait and see
In the us and them, in the them and us,
In the should have been me
He's the exception that proves the rule
All your dreams are a lie
See trains all leaving without you, when Willy flies by
