Lyrics

I'm not ashamed to say that I am
Disgusted by the human race
I am disgusted to say I am
Ashamed still by the human race

Someday I think we'll all be murdered
By all the ones we elect to office

All you parents that are raising kids
Don't beat them like it's natural to
You're child's three foot six and weighs at fifty pounds
You overeat and you drink too much

Someday I think we'll all be murdered
By all the ones we elect to office
Someday I think we'll all be murdered
By all the ones we elect to office
