2.274 : 2/1/06 : Mammon

I’m swimming against the
stream like a salmon
Trying to live in America
and not serve mammon
It’s that or God
the master said
And it just keeps rattling
rattling around my head
The problem’s I owe Caesar
bout all I’ve got
He’s into me so deep
my skulls about to pop
It gives me an ice-pick headache
right above my eye
I just want to get clear
but no matter how I try
I’m sliding into mammon’s pit
wishing I was a rich guy
someday maybe I’ll beat the house
someday maybe pigs will fly
