Competition ( Original Demo ) 12.21.10

You know it’s been said
Again and again
You don’t cheat a friend
Yet look what you’ve done
I counted on you
Now we’re divided in two

Compare the good with the bad
The bad you complain
Is your loss my gain
I see your wheels start to spin
Those lies and that grin
Fight tooth and nail just to win

Competition’s got you and I
The pressure’s on at the end of the day
When success is afforded, consumed and rewarded

But now
A new game’s arranged
Except the rules have all changed
We started so long ago
When thoughts of building seemed fun
Before the cost overrun

I saw you speak to them for
About an hour or more
I’d never faced them before
Yet when I saw my first chance
When you stepped back I advanced
I turned the charm up and danced

Competition’s got you and I
The pressure’s on at the end of the day
When a company dream is a pyramid scheme

And who’s won
We’re both left there in the dust
There’s no one else here to trust
It’s every man for himself
Abel is leveled by Cain
Year-end shows capital gain

It’s every man for himself
In this fat corporate show
Now take that pink slip and go

Just go
Keep all of your cards close to your chest
Out-perform all of the rest
Anything goes
Let ’em pay
Right through the nose
