Story behind the song
Another one of my early songs dealing with the destructive force of peer pressure and choosing to remain ignorant.
Lyrics
Engaged in savage battle is a herd of stranded cattle And a king upon the saddle like a snake without a rattle Hes madness with a gun and doesnt stop for anyone Never ponders whats been done cause all that matters is who won Were livin in a slaughterhouse we run through mazes like a mouse Everywhere another fence its all because weve got no sense And if you dont get on the stick youre gonna meet your maker quick The road you walk is yours to pick but only if you know the trick Now Im not puttin no one down Im askin you to look around That you might see what I have found and get your head up off the ground Listen to the distant sound thats callin you to where youre bound You better get your thoughts unwound theyll sell your body by the pound Were livin in a slaughterhouse we run through mazes like a mouse Everywhere another fence its all because weve got no sense And if you dont get on the stick youre gonna meet your maker quick The road you walk is yours to pick but only if you know the trick We wont have another chance to get from underneath the stance Of those who watch our every breath from when were born until our death So if youre thinkin; whats the word? Remember that youre in the herd And go ahead call me absurd for tryin to help a grounded bird Were livin in a slaughterhouse we run through mazes like a mouse Everywhere another fence its all because weve got no sense And if you dont get on the stick youre gonna meet your maker quick The road you walk is yours to pick but only if you know the trick Engaged in savage battle is a herd of stranded cattle And a king upon the saddle like a snake without a rattle Hes madness with a gun and doesnt stop for anyone Never ponders whats been done cause all that matters is who won
