There’s people hauling people 
Out from under their homes 
There’s people hauling people 
Out through the groaning stones 
You can see me tonight, 
I’ll be shell shocked and white in the cold light of dawn 
But I ain’t gonna cry just to give some guy 
Food for songs 
 
People going hungry, 
Stand like a sack full of bones, 
People going hungry, feeding a billion homes 
So I put my dead child down, you put your tv on 
Well I ain’t gonna cry just to give some guy 
Food for songs 
 
Yeah, there’s people beating people, 
To keep the system strong 
People beating people, to keep the illusion going 
So I’m going to fight every day of my life ’til they’re gone 
But I ain’t gonna die just to give some guy 
Food for songs 
 
Yeah, there’s people holding people, 
Making those wailing sounds, 
Yeah, there’s people holding people, 
Watching them lower me down 
So I take my leave and you take what you see 
And you make it what you want 
But when I see you in hell, I will give you some 
Food for songs.
