The Table

Come on get up in this sleigh
Going to see the world today
Hold on for all your worth
Or you will plummet back down to earth
Got a package for the slaves
Not exactly what they crave
Just enough to keep them quiet
And to stop a riot

Ho Ho
Be satisfied with what you get
Ho Ho
You ungrateful proletariat
Ho Ho
Your position is what it is
Ho Ho
There will not be any changes

Tried to give my heart to Jesus
But it was slippery and fell
He was quite apologetic
As we watched it fall to hell
I said - your butter fingers cost me
An eternity with sheep
He said - well that was just analogous
It’s your soul I’ll save and keep

You’ve got your elbows on the table
Your head is in your hands
Certainty is circling
And it won’t being changing plans
The table might look different
From where you’re standing in this room
This song goes on forever
And there’s silence coming soon

Dirty proletariat
