lyrics

They'll tie you to the floor, and smother you
You’re bound to change your mind
Neighbors gather ‘round to see
They’ll water you like flowers 'til you drown

You say Momma please
I cannot breathe, and it makes me wanna tell
My Father said "don't go begging for your soul"

My hands are tied
They’ll pull your strings

We’re turning all your money gold
Don’t exchange until they all grow old
Or watch it blacken, turn to coal
We’ll live on water
Pull my own strings, rule supreme
We’ll call it home

When they shine you up in blue and black
Until you bleed to his delight
So you’d better know your rights
As if that much would save you anyhow

We’re turning all your money gold
Don’t exchange until we all grow old
Or watch it blacken, turn to coal
We’ll live on water
Pull my own strings, rule supreme..
