Wishes are for childeren.
Tricks are for kids.
Love is for the stupid.
And hate for me and you.

Friends are for the young.
Peace is for the weak,
War is for the selfish.
And choas for me and you.

Riots are for the drunk.
Laws are for the controled.
Entertainment is for the bored.
And boredom for me and you.

Respect is for the old.
School is for the smart.
Government is for the lazy.
And anarchy for me and you.

God is for the righteous.
Lust is for the players.
Cheating is for the losers,
And loss for me and you.

Songs are for the birds.
Music is for the souls.
Freedom is for the animals.
And prison for me and you.
