Hey! Can you hear that sound?
I am the running dog
I'd like to cheat the system
Just like a welfare queen
I'd like to bleed the beast
Every time I hear the bells across the floor for morning opening
I feel a tingle, from my scalp down to my knees
And the calls roll in, all day until bells sound closing
and I lie, and cheat and steal
But do I sleep at night?
Can you hear that sound at night?
It comes from deep inside
Every day consumed by greed
Bells ring as it crashes all around me
Wake in my empty room
Empty out my pockets of impending doom
I am the injured dog
I tried to bleed the beast
Bailout or will I fail, at least I know I'll get what's mine
Can you hear those bells at night?
They kill from deep inside
