Taste the shame on your plate

 

It’s not that great is it Jake

 

Take a bite with your spoon

 

You grit your teeth don’t you June

 

 

Cut a piece with your knife

 

Just to leave it laying there Mike

 

Try a little with your fork

 

You can’t stand it can you Mort

 

 

Can someone else

 

 

Can someone else

 

 

Can someone else

 

 

Believe our lies that are molding and holding

 

 

another down

 

 

Broken promises we've made to the friends we've

 

 

let drown

 

 

The hand we spread butter on which became their

 

 

bitter fear

 

 

Honey from our lips the milk of vipers when they

 

 

are near

 

 

 

It’s nothing that you will fancy

 

If the table was turned around Nancy

 

It’s just another pile of poo

 

To throw at yet another Lou

 

 

Pour a portion in your cup

 

It’s the sludge that you’ve mixed up

 

Take a drink from the glass

 

That you’re not afraid to pass

 

 

To someone else

 

 

To someone else

 

 

To someone else

 

 

 

It’s our lies that are molding and holding

 

 

another down

 

 

 

Broken promises we've made to the friends we've

 

 

let drown

 

 

 

The hand we spread butter on which became their

 

 

bitter fear

 

 

 

Honey from our lips the milk of vipers when they

 

 

are near

 

 

 

Blaming someone else

 

 

Blaming someone else

 

 

Blaming someone else

 

 

 

 

For our lies that are molding and holding

 

 

another down

 

 

 

Broken promises we've made to the friends we’ve

 

 

let drown

 

 

 

The hand we spread butter on which became their

 

 

bitter fear

 

 

 

Honey from our lips the milk of vipers when they

 

 

are near

 

 

 

Honey from our lips the milk of vipers when they

 

 

are near
