Covered in sinners and dripping with guilt,
Making you money from slime and from filth...
Parading your bellies in ivory towers,
Investing our lives in your schemes and your powers

You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the beast 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! (quick)
Or be DEAD! (dead)

See... what's ruling all our lives...
See... who's pulling strings...
See... what's ruling all our lives
See who holds the strings...!
I bet you won't fall on your face,
Your belly will hold you in place--
..
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!
So pull yourself stupid, rob yourself blind!!

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 thieves in your head...
Be quick!
Or be dead!
Be quick! (quick!)(quick!) (quick!)
Or be DEAD! (dead!) (dead!) (dead!)

..

You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thieves in your head
You've got to watch them - Be quick or be dead,
Snake eyes in heaven, the thieves in your head...!!
Be quick!
Or be dead!
BE QUICK!
