Death By A Thousand Cuts

Death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood

Politics is sharp as a knife
It cuts right through, just feel it slice
Austerity’s teeth just feel them bite
The cost for some is too high a price
It’s dark in here who turned off the lights
Who pulled the plug, started the plight
The end of the tunnel is nowhere in sight
The smallest of sparks will ignite

Death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood
I said death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood

Two plus two, now equals five
Just be happy to be alive
To education say goodbye
Destitution at an all time high
Crime rates shoot through the sky
Infant mortality, can’t be denied
Drug addiction leaving some fried
‘I never voted for this’ I hear some cry

Death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood
I said death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood

You’ve been replaced by a robot
You’re expendable, they tell you you’re not
We’re in this together, the slogan will rot
So tell me now what you got?
Between poverty and a hard rock
You can’t move, yes you’re stuck
There’s no jobs, things aren’t looking up
You’re gonna need more than luck!

Death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood
I said death by, death by, death by a thousand cuts
Feel the weight of the blade and taste the blood
