Tattoos in Mayberry

Free stylin shoes make
feet obsolete. Neighbor ladies
babies got nothin to eat.
You're on the street, cop on the beat,
turnin up the heat, Off to prison you go,
if you snatch that treat.

It's everywhere,it's everywhere,destitution,
it's an institution
the verdict is in from the prosecution
no stay of execution
it's everywhere
it's everywhere.
Take a look around you,
it's everywhere.
Moms begging with her children
works their regular beat.
One eye stays open
gettin no sleep. Wrapped in torn blankets
on down 'n' out street
Tonights forecast
"Nobody cares"
Take a look around you
It's everywhere
Super Grouper
Model sells this season's hair
Their tickets get punched by plastic millionaires
It's everywhere
It's everywhere
I've heard peace is far on the horizon
But,bloody Moon once again is risin'
bone deep
in for the kill
can you feel the chill
Hit the ground
can you smell that sound

Shylock';s coming round today 
to claim his fleshy pound
Mcfancy jobs are posted up
and waitin for you
They'll work your salt silly
till your lips turns blue
Scat master orders you on your knees
What's his ain't yours
still you're beggin please
Makes you shout to The Devil
one aberrant prayer
Take a look around you
it's everywhere
