lyrics

And they wine and dine
Their words are so benign
It's all by design
To disguise the crime
And we fall behind
We see it all the time
We walk the line
We are the ninety-nine

They grow fatter
And we don't matter
While the warnings bells continue to ring
No we won't swallow
And we won't follow
In the steps of an idiot king

They know they are the one
They are the only one
They are the sun
The whole world's waiting on
You know the rest of us
That's nearly everyone
We are the helpless ones
Until we rise and scream as one!

They grow fatter
And we don't matter
While the warnings bells continue to ring
No we won't swallow
And we won't follow
In the steps of an idiot king

No we won't swallow
And we won't follow
In the steps of an idiot king
We won't follow
No we won't wallow
In the mess of an ignorant king
