Look at them now
What do they want?
And what do they do now?
Nothing at all

What do they know?
What do they think?
And who do they tell?
Well, no one at all

Lives are truly meaningless
And we are busy being blessed

With all that we can take and pocket
No one needs to know
We're the plug and they're the socket
Give us the juice and we'll go

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the animals sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

How do they sleep?
Their lives are so tart
Bring me the trash collectors
'Cause they're nothing but trash

What do you expect?
They've got no standards
So we lower the bar
'Cause they're waiting for us

We'll open up Pandora's Box
Pandora gave her keys and locks

They're the big dogs waiting for their mother
Come to the confessional
So I can tell you all that bugger off
There's no time like now

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the animals sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the market-place sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

And we'll do it our way, it's our time to play
We know what to say if they stand in our way
Don't stand in our way, no time like today

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the anthems we sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the animals sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

Can't you hear the choir now?
Listen to the chosen ones sing
Can't you hear the slaughterhouse bells?
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king

In the land of the pigs the butcher is king
In the land of the pigs the butcher is king
