Lyrics

Can I be unhappy? Look at what I see
A beast in furs and crowned in luxury

He's a wealthy man in the poorest land, a self-appointed king
And there's no complaining while he's reigning

The lambs are bare of fleece and cold
The lion has stolen that, I'm told
There must be some creature mighty as you are

The lambs go hungry, not fair
The biggest portion is the lion's share
There must be some creature mighty as you are

Can I be unhappy? Listen and agree
No words can shame him or tame him

The lambs are bare of fleece and cold
The lion has stolen that, I'm told
There must be some creature mighty as you are

The lambs go hungry, not fair
The biggest portion is the lion's share
There must be some creature mighty as you are, as you are

Razor claws in velvet paws, you dance in your guarded home
'Til a stronger beast will call on you and pounce upon your throne

Do we pay? Dearly, for the lion takes so greedily
And he knows that what he's taken, it is ours
That's how the wealth's divided

Among the lambs and king of the beasts
It is so one-sided
Until the lamb is king of the beasts
We live so one-sided
