Royalty is coming to town today,
The Queen is parading her favourite wave
And the crowd is forced, and the trumpets roar
The red carpets worn, from her daily jaunts.

The Queen has decided to have her say,
Her orders are clear and the men obey,
Never speak up, or your ears she will cut
Patience she’ll suck, into the earth you will rot.

And you’re free, to do what you want.
But don’t come running to me, when there’s something you need
A simple thank you will do, end this circus, this greed
So free yourself,
And you’ll tell me that you love me,
But only cause you’re hungry, so my mind is made up.
So feed yourself, feed yourself, feed.

The circus is coming to town today,
The laughs they come cheap, have a price to pay,
We watch and we cry, but the tears fall dry
Like tears from a clown, we must try, we must try.

The clown has decided to have his say,
We must be silent to make his day.
Our breath will be baited, our souls ill-fated.
All the days that we’ve wasted, all the time we’ve waited

I know you’re hungry,
But you can feed yourself.
I know you’re tired,
But you can feed yourself.
I know you’re famished,
But you can feed yourself.
I know you’re starving,
But you can feed yourself.

My father said, always pay your dues,
My mother said, mind your Ps and Qs,
My conscious said, never speak out of turn,
But life has told me, actions speak louder than words.
So feed yourself.
