Welfare Queen

if i look you in the eye
tell you i don’t wanna die you try to eat me
you’d say it was a good kill
you’d say it was a very good kill

if i try to raise my hand
whisper i don’t understand you’d just delete me
you’d do it with a good bill
a necessary bill

oh-why-oh-why-o-why-y?

(she’s the welfare queen)
oh i’m just a welfare, welfare queen
you know what i mean, you know what i mean

oh-why-oh-why-o-why-y?

when i try to walk away
tell you i don’t wanna stay you get to shoot me
you’d say it was a good kill
you’d really think it was a very good kill

when i try to raise a fist
you put shackles on my wrist and try to *$#%@! me
you’d tell them it was all for the best
for the good of the rest

oh-why-oh-why-o-why-y?

when i try to stand my ground
show you everything i’ve found you don’t believe me
if i offer any grace
you get all up in my face just to defeat me

if i say i can’t survive
on the wages you provide you denigrate me
you just swallow any lie
that protects you from your pride, who’s the obscenity?
