Lyrics:

Here we go!
Power tripping your luck is switched
Oh, so now it’s funny
When it’s your turn to laugh
You go poke the running joke!

Scoring points with god
Get no perfect marks
But your grades keep falling
How you treat the weak is
Your true nature calling

Porn chick calls herself a therapist
Call it what it is
For all the money in the world
We’ll go to war for backward heros

Come to rescue you
Just to lien on you
With interests soaring
How you treat the weak is
Your true nature calling

Motherfucker, do you really care?
Motherfucker, do you really care?

Please believe
We still live and breathe
Through native tongue
And poetry
All those years we believed, yeah

Scoring points with god
Get no perfect marks
But your grades keep falling
How you treat the weak in
Your true nature calling
