lyrics

The Birthright Blues

There's nothing winner about our dirty circle.
Nothing pretty about our time or race.
We hold the places you won't stoop to,
and sciatica knows no time or place.

Scars are badges, comments war.
Success defined by something for nothing.

There's no one famous or man well heeled around me,
and I ain't a moocher or a leech.
Just looking forward to thirty percent of nothing,
and hate mongers waiting around to teach.

Defactoids massaged, shaming all.
Success defined by something for nothing.

You sit high within your give up palace.
And hope I've the wings to fly away.
To a place where we can fill the vacuum.
And anesthesia on a working day.

Something for nothing.
Scars are badges.
What part of patriarchy is this?
Where scars are badges.
