​When The Rats Desert The Sinking Ship

This song is by Painbastard and appears on the album No Need To Worry (2006).

One thing I say at first:
Pride comes before the fall

Don't take me for an idiot
I'm not as blind as you assume
Do you really think I'm slow, witted?
Who do you take me for?

I'm not your underling
And you will never be my king, yeah
Hey, buddy you live in a glass house
Do you really want to throw stones?

Who do they think I am?
Who do they take me for?
And when the system fails
You are the first rats who desert the sinking ship

My money is your sustenance
My presence is your right to exist
And during I am hard working
You are talking about tax increases

Cross your heart and be honest
Should I really take you seriously?
Do you really subserve my country?
Or are you the real parasites?
