​Counterpoint

This song is by Twelfth Night.

Rat, rat, rat
Bourgeois interest dressed vultures
Who suck like leeches
Scratching and teething
Egos check cheques in transit
Rank oppositions headline collisions

Rat eat rat, snap their backs, raise to play, counterpoint
Rat eat rat, rat bite back, raise the stakes, counterpoint

Ambitious cronies
Lay grass on Judas
"Et tu Brutus"
Disease, wade in the slurry
If cash won't clench it
Then take it dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty

Rat eat rat - spit and scratch - face to face - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - snitch and snatch - braced to face - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - snap their backs - raise to play - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - rat bite back - raise the stakes - counterpoint

La la la la
La la la la

Modus operandi
Contrary motives, modus vivendi
Hands tied, estranged allegiance
Trained in psychosis
Drowned in plutocracy
Come see, comme ca, come...

Rat eat rat - rack their stacks - switch their tracks - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - stitch and hatch - tricks and traps - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - spit and scratch - face to face - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - snitch and snatch - braced to face - counterpoint

Rat eat rat - snap their backs - raise to play - counterpoint
Rat eat rat - rat bite back - raise the stakes - counterpoint
