lyrics

The little banker man
Filling his dole with dollar bills and others’ gold
Foreclosing mothers’ homes
How great your equity matures now that you won’t
Count on your gilded greed
Taking advantage of a burdened beggar’s hand
We’ll leave you on your knees
Gagging and guillotined with your head in the sand

Come with us, your chariot awaits
Wipe that crooked smile off your face
Bury your sins and dig a fancy grave!
Dig a fancy grave!

Hi, Mr. Empty Suit!
I see a lump of coal right where your heart should be
Your reckoning will come
Pulpits and podiums won’t save you from the street
Now please don’t squirm and shake
We give to you a better rest than you deserve
Can you spill blood from stone?
We’re gonna try and then we’ll see how quick you burn

Come with us, your chariot awaits
Wipe that crooked smile off your face
Bury your sins and dig a fancy grave!
Dig a fancy grave!

Distinguished guests! Allow me to introduce these well-groomed aristocrats to the consequences of their actions!

The pauper king shall kiss the ring!
(Dig a fancy grave!)
The golden sons their smoking gun
(Dig a fancy grave!)
The daughter queen behind the scenes
(Dig a fancy grave!)
The knight and knave will drop the blade
(Dig a fancy grave!)
The godly state has set the plate
(Eat the fucking rich!)
The billionaires and generals will be our steak and vegetables
The bourgeoisie our Earl Grey tea, a ruling class charcuterie
The old decree of her-and-he it doesn’t matter much to me!

Come with us, your chariot awaits
Wipe that crooked smile off your face
Bury your sins and dig a fancy grave!
Dig a fancy grave!
