Tom Waits - What Keeps Mankind Alive (text piesne)



You gentleman who think you have a mission
To purge us of the seven deadly sins
Should first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, that's where it begins
You lot who preach restrait and watch your waist as well
Should learn for all time how the world is run
However much you twist, whatever lies you tell
Food is the first thing, morals follow on
So first make sure that those who now are starving
Get proper helpings when we all start carving

What keeps mankind alive, the fact that millions
Are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed
Mankind can keep alive, thanks to its brilliance
At keeping its humanity repressed
For once you must not try to shirk the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

Yoy say the girls may strip with your permission
You draw the line dividing art from sin
So first sort out the basic food position
Then start your preaching, thats where it begins
You lot who bank on your desires and our disgust
Should learn for all time how the world is run
Whatever lies you tell, however much you twist
Food is the first thing, morals follow on
So first make sure that those who now are starving
Get proper helpings when we all start carving

What keeps mankind alive, the fact that millions
Are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed
Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
At keeping its humanity repressed
For once you must not try to shirk the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts
