lyrics

She says that I'm a weird egg
But I don't really know
They ask you for your papers but you've got nothing to show

So then you march down
To the military
You know the system's broke
But they'll make you citizenry

If you shoot their guns
And be straight... shooting
It's a civil right that you're paid to take away

In a foreign state
That maybe you would like
If it wasn't filled with filthy pirates
Scurvy, scurvy, scurvy, scurvy

Centralized banking, lobbying parties
Corporate political sponsorship
Big dumb government is all we talk about
Where's your birth certificate
Oh yeah, I made it up

We intellectualize rule of the law
When it's a lot, much more
Simpler than that

Because if I refuse to pay for bullets
Tax payer people will come and raid my house
Point a gun at me
And my black cat
And never consider principles of it

Well I can transpose
And twist around words
Like a bigger sister does to her little baby brother
When she's being sneaky and he's too young to fight
But inside of his mind he knows it isn't right

Weird egg
But I don't really know
It all makes sense to me
But maybe we're too high from pharmaceuticals
And subsidized food
Made from synthesized petrochemicals

I just want to be free
Turn off the TV
Grow a garden and then read a book
And leave people alone who live in other countries
And be proud of my own government again

Instead it's always centralized banking
Lobbying parties
Corporate political sponsorship
Big dumb government is all we talk about
But we never consider principles of it
