Be Quick or Be Dead Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Covered in sinners and dripping
With gilt
Making you money from slime
And from filth
Parading your bellies in ivory towers
Investing our lives in your schemes
And your powers
Verse 2
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick
Or be dead
Verse 3
See, what's ruling all our lives
See, who's pulling the strings
I bet you won't fall on your face
Your belly will hold you in place
Verse 4
The serpent is crawling inside of
Your ear
He says you must vote for what you
Want to hear
Don't matter what's wrong as long as you're
Alright
Pull yourself stupid and rob
Yourself blind
Verse 5
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick, quick, quick, quick
Or be dead, dead, dead, dead
Verse 6
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
You've got to watch them
Be quick
Or be dead
Snake eyes in heaven
The thief's
In your head
Be quick
Or be dead
Be quick
