The Lyrics

Choking You...

Why do feds suddenly appear
Thought you were in the clear
Just like me, they long to be
Choking you

Pensions gone, 401's are too
Be assured we'll get you
Just like me, they long to be
Choking you

On the day that you sold out, investors got together
And decided inside trading just won't do
So they hired some attorneys
And began to prosecute the likes of you

That is why, all the feds in town
Follow you, all around
Just like me, they long to be
Choking you

On the day that you sold out, employees got together
And decided to create some pain for you
So they contacted all the media
Made sure your private life was all but through

That is why, the cameras all around
Follow you, through the town
Just like me, they long to be
Choking you
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Wa-ah-ah-ah-ah
Choking you
Wa-ah-ah-ah-ah
Choking you
