lyrics

I'm leaving the country
Cos a doctor's bill has got me sick full of worry
So I'll take more pills and pray to God that they help me
Still I made my will
Side effects can be deadly
The internet says they kill

It's a new rule we're born into
Where a profit worth more than you
You got to fight for yourself or fall like everyone else

I knew a guy who was digging in Radiation Trails
He thought he'd challenge the system
I watched him fail
A loser to his condition
To be young and frail
A coffin they couldn't give him
Can't afford the nails
A claim rejected

He said there's new rules we're born into
We follow blindly we live as fools
Take a look all around and see the pain in this town

Can you lend me a hand?
My brother, my friend
You know I'd understand if they were all filled up
While the expenses climb our assistance declines
If you can't space a dime
No, I won't blame you
It's what expected

It's just a new rule we're born into
And medicare cannot cover you
You can leave in your car, the doctor sends his regards
Just go home, drive safe
It's in your head, sir
Tighten those screws
The God above will come down for you
Just ignore all around
You do not live in this town
