Feast and Famine



"Germany's Children Are Starving!" by Kathe Kollwitz, 1924






Feast and famine
Binge and purge
Celebrate and sacrifice
What goes up
Is going to come back down
And coming down’s not very nice








Turning the world upside-down






Let them have some freedom
And when you turn your back
They’ll turn the whole world upside down
They’ll say you're the bad guy
You’ll be the enemy
If you try to stand your ground








There’s a new world coming
It can’t be stopped
It’s getting closer every day
The only decision
You have left
Is how much you’re going to make us pay

There's a new world coming and it can't be stopped
