lyrics

even if it's easy to be free, what's your definition of freedom?
and who the fuck are you, anyway? who the fuck are they?
who the fuck am i to say? what the fuck is really going on?
how did the cat get so fat? why does the family die? do you care why?
'cause there hasn't been a sign of anything gettin' better in the ghetto
people's fed up, but when they get up
you point your fuckin' finger, you racist, you bigot
but that's not the problem, now is it?
it's all about the money, political power is takin'
protecting the rich, denying the poor
yeah, they like to watch the war from the white house
and i wonder how can they sleep at night? how can they sleep at night?
how did the cat get so fat? how did the cat get so fat?
