sociopathic attitudes to the needs of others.
I'm all there is, there's only me

and what I need to live

The skills I have are all I need

to take more than you'd give



It matters not to me at all

what your are or who

I don't care what your need to live

or hopes that you pursue



I'll take your gain by any means

and I won't think a thought,

About the chaos in your life,

from losing what I got



Your sheep to shear and lambs to eat

and God the flock is large.

The exercise of all my power

still gives me quite a charge



My power is great and yours is weak

because for kin you care,

And I will exercise my hold

in ways you wouldn't dare



You won't do anything to me

because of who I hold

If you move against me now,

the hostage will grow cold



It's your move, your choice to make,

the harm will be your fault,

You make me do this wretched thing,

you just won't yield the vault



Put your weapon down right there,

DO IT! DO IT NOW!!

I SAID DROP IT, CAN'T YOU HEAR?

I'LL REALLY SHOOT THIS COW



I'LL (BANG) Oh shit, a hammer blow,

I'm spinning to the ground

I have no strength, my hot blood leaks

there's darkness coming round



I guess the sheep got tired of wolves

unfettered acts of crime

They armed themselves and trained a lot

and set it right this time
