Corrosion Of Conformity — Long Whip/big America lyrics

Saw the news today, some D. C. Suit
Try to break away, said he lost another million
Just another old man trying to pass a buck
With his dirty hand, good thing he knows his bible

Stick his ass in hell
Even better in this tiny cell
Make him understand the meaning
Of these words they try to preach
Just to keep them out of the nation's reach
I guess it's all for the better

Take it all away, take me
Won't you take me far away
Hey, hey, hey, what's that game you play
Will it make me richer
'Cause I do not have a dime and I hate to waste your time
Maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

Now I was barely 21 laying in a ditch
With a lonely gun so I gave my heart away
But I got it back today in a velvet box stamped usa
Now all the neighbors call me hero, hero

I'm gonna lose my mind so I buckled down
And did some crime, but it wasn't when they taught me
Hit the road in high pursuit, now I'm on the run
Just like the suit, didn't know it was this easy

Take it all away, take me
Won't you take me far away
Hey, hey, hey what's this game you play
Will it make me a poor man
'Cause I got an extra dime but I lose it every time
Maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

Hey, hey, hey, what's that game you play
Will it make me richer
'Cause I do not have a dime and I hate to waste your time
Maybe I'm wrong but I think this whip is too long

No more, no more,
See I can't seem to find the time to crawl across the line
But I can't stay here till I die
