Track Name: Pound of Flesh
And they send you off to war
But will they pay their pound of flesh

And they speak of flags and glory
But will they pay their pound of flesh

And at night they sleep in silk sheets
When will they pay their pound of flesh

Without shame without remorse
But will they pay their pound of flesh

A politician’s smile
Is as cold as lady death

Profiteering at your expense
They take til there’s nothing left

And they put a rifle in your hands
But will they pay their pound of flesh

And they tell you it’s for freedom
But will they pay their pound of flesh

You spilled blood, they spilled ink
Will you take your pound of flesh

And at home they eat and drink
Will you take your pound of flesh

And all they send is flowers
Will you take your pound of flesh

Bombs and bullets fill the air
The burning takes your breath

They sit behind their wooden desks
Will you take your pound of flesh

While you sit behind enemy lines
Will you take your pound of flesh

And they sold you broken dreams
Will you take your pound of flesh

And they gave you broken bones
Will you take your pound of flesh

The rich become more rich
Will you take your pound of flesh

Rivers of blood, yet their feet are clean
Will you take your pound of flesh

And they live atop the hill
Will you take your pound of flesh

July 17, 1789
You took your pound of flesh

On that day You stormed the Bastille
You took a pound of flesh

Yet we still have our wars
Will you take your pound of flesh

Will you take your pound of flesh
Will you take your pound of flesh
Will you take your pound of flesh
Will you take your pound of flesh
