Us Eat Them

Do Good Assassins

Record Details


Hand to mouth
Toe to toe
Tooth and nail (nail you to the wheel)

Back to back
Heart to heart
Eye to eye (I know how you feel)

Slumlords and dead end jobs
Pitbulls and five to ten
Rat traps and vacant lots
It’s either us or them

Feet of clay
Heart of gold
Nerves of steel (steal what you can’t earn)

Hand to hand
Side to side
Arm in arm (arming the poor)

Forget the dog eat dog
The palace or the pen’
Cause that’s all over kid
Tonight it’s us eat them

Lima, London, Katmandu
Hong Kong, Marrakesh
In Bombay, L.A. and Khartoum
Property is theft

A hundred hearts
A thousand tears
A million feet marching to war
A thousand miles
A million dead
A single voice asking "what for?"

There’s nothing over there
Scarecrows and hollowmen
So bring it all back home
Tonight it’s us eat them

Pick up that humble sword
Put down that mighty pen
The ink has all run dry
Tonight it’s us eat them
