On Your Feet or on Your Knees Lyrics

1. On Your Feet or on Your Knees (2:34)
I was looking at the T.V. news,
People everywhere blowing a fuse
People everywhere under the gun,
Little kids dying never had no fun

Human beings ain't got no brains
Think you're better but you're all the same
Think you're clever but you're all to blame
Here we are again in the same old frame

Shut up, I'm talking to you,
It's on television so it can't be true
And I can't play that game no more,
Wake up and see it through
Kill the many to save the few,
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees

Headline terror crime on rise,
Half ain't true and the rest is lies
Same old smile on the same old face,
Same old horse win the same old race

I wouldn't smile if I was you,
Don't relax, 'cos it ain't so new
Watch your back, light the light outside,
Somebody comin' that you just can't bribe

Shut up, I'm talking to you,
It's on television so it can't be true
But I can't believe their lies no more,
Watch out, I'm comin' through,
Boogey man gonna bite you too,
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees


I was reading some magazine,
It was written for human beings
Can't believe the stuff I read,
Human trash for human heads

You humans don't be so proud,
You humans don't talk too loud
You humans just ain't too smart,
It's enough to break my human heart

Listen up, I'm talking to you
Pay attention 'cos I mean you too
And I will tell you something new
Your values ain't worth a dime
Human rights just human crime
I know what the blind man sees
On your feet or on your knees
