Kickback

 

In a world that’s insane

Ain’t nothin’ left to gain

But a pain-filled brain

They’re passin’ out pills

Gettin’ kickbacks & thrills

Over everyone’s necessity

We’re all hooked on pharmacy

That only hides reality

Ya can’t cure insanity

Without a damn lobotomy

Uncle Sam has a needle in my vein

Yeah the man has a hand in my pain

I’m payin’ someone else’s bills

With these crooked little pills

And tomorrow I plan to do the same
