about

“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” - John Maynard Keynes

lyrics

Lions! Got to feed 'em like lions.
Like lions! Got a hunger like lions!

Can you hear them coming, marching hard against the plain?
Dust clouds welling up like it's 'bout to rain.
Banners flying, filling the whole damn sky with dread
Soon the rivers here'll be running red!

Lions! Got to feed 'em like lions.
Like lions! Got a hunger like lions!

No Mercy for the meek, no pity for the poor,
Just a hearty appetite, always hungrier than before!
Slaves to their drives with an instinct for insanity.
A cruel inheritance for a hopeless humanity.

Lions! Got to feed 'em like lions.
Like lions! Got a hunger like lions!

And when their bellies
Can't hold no more
And the master's dying
On his killing floor
Will we all turn 'round
And walk away
Or will another
Rise again that day
'Cause we're too blind to find another way?
We just can't seem to get away…

From lions! Got to feed 'em like lions!
Like lions! Got a hunger like lions!
Lions! Got to feed 'em like lions.
Like lions! Got a hunger like lions!

Surrounded by the opulence of what could be considered the Bahrain of North America, they are exactly the kind of contradiction that you would expect from a quasi-anarchist discourse feeding off the fruits of unrepentant frontier capitalism. ... more
