lyrics

we are going down
this ship's taking water
taking us to the slaughter
of the free man to his grave
the free man to his grave

you can but you do not leave
you've got everything you need
you've got the whole pie
every slice you walk by
you feed the crumbs to your dogs
feed the crumbs to your dogs

it's a miserable feeling
out on the ocean
it's a miserable feeling
with nothing to hold on
this boat's been rocking and rolling
for too long
everybody knows
they try not to think
everybody knows
the boats gonna sink
real soon
if we don't help
real soon
if we don't
send our help, anyways we can
send our help anyway we can
send our help anyway we can

and your mother told you boy, it's ok
and you father old you boy, be a man now
and your leaders mold you boy, it's their plan now
but you realize you could never, hurt anyone
