lyrics

This is not a whim I can alter
Campaigning with a chip
On my aching shoulder
No matter now
Because to win is to forfeit
Paying attention how
I got electrical profit

Was that who I think it was?
Holding up downtown from an ethanol bus

We interrupt this program for a word from our disappointed sponsors
Who’ve become unusually pale
With a fitful eye and a smokin' barrel
What’s to become of me now?
I’ve got my eyes on hog futures

Kickin’ back in the slop pen
They’re playing our tune
And bombing Afghanistan
Imagine all the people
Shootin’ up their mutual funds
You could say I’m a dreamer

Was that you? I think it was
Crackin’ up downtown and cuttin’ a rug

We interrupt this program for a word from our disappointed sponsors
Could you help them out somehow
And exercise your apportioned freedom
What’s to become of me now?
I’ve got my eyes on hog futures

Could beat the hell out of suffering
