Blood in the Wake

Blood in the Wake

Words and music by Abel Ashes, from the album Between the Droughts and the Floods, 2019

They’re selling God…
They’re selling God.
They’re selling guns, selling insurance, and selling mutual funds.

They’re selling God.
They’re selling drugs, selling insurance and selling mutual funds.

Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.

They own the road.
It’s like you’re not even there.
They’ll break your spine and they won’t even care.

They own the road.
It’s like you’re not even there, shatter your bones and they won’t even care.

Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.

Raising the costs of your medical care, poor folks will die.
It’s laissez-faire.

Cut public funds for the medical care, loved ones will die.
It’s laissez-faire.

Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
Psychopaths are born and sociopaths are made.
