Turnspit dogs beneath the feast
goaded into roasting fellow beasts

Wanna say we gotta
jumping over coals thrown at our feet
Oh, they got the numbers, at times
but don’t forget that we still have our teeth

Learned this back when we were curtailed kids
held responsible for what we did

If we knew now what we knew then
I’m sure that we’d be better men
But until we regress, there’s no progress
'cause we’re all id

Who will tell the keeper?
Who will tell the keeper?
Tell the keeper

So we hoard resources in a mad dash
fingers crossed behind our wounded backs

Parlor pinks kitchen sink think piece theories
on what we lack
Glib admonition for ammunition
Convictions strong as a spent match

Who will tell the keeper?
Tell the keeper
Who will tell the keeper?
