Do you know the deal?
Enjoy the veal!
Investment banks lie and steal?
Enjoy the veal!
Toxic chemicals in your meal?w
Enjoy the veal!
Climate change is real?
Enjoy the veal!

Shred Lexicon:
Welcome everybody to reality dinner theater,
I'm your host, giving it my most,
Now listen closely to what I'm about to tell ya,
Don't buy anything the oligarchs'll sell ya!
We've got a very special menu on tap for you tonight,
Veal roast, broccoli, basmati rice,
Just sit back and enjoy the performance,
Though the difference tween perception and reality's enormous!
We can sit back and pretend that it's all hunky dory,
Even though we know that it's a whole different story,
I'll spare you the gory details if you want,
But the specials never change in this restaurant,
If revenge is a dish best served cold like they say
Then we're serving up the plutocrats a shit sorbet
Now I'm not acting in my own self-interest
I'm just one man with a mic tryna make a difference!

Do you know the deal?
Enjoy the veal!
Investment banks lie and steal?
Enjoy the veal!
Toxic chemicals in your meal?
Enjoy the veal!
Climate change is real?
Enjoy the veal!

Headsnack:
They say real news is fake and fake news is real/
as 1 tenth of 1 percent recommends the veal/
at the supper club where the yuppie buddies plan
to con the common man, never getting their hands muddy
their case studies are funded by coca-cola
ever wonder why your school sells soda?
As the Donald Quixote triumphs over windmills
that don't exist yet he expects me to sit still
and swallow the swill to wash down the veal
As most of us sheep remain asleep at the wheel
keep lying as you serve a dying man's last meal
put on your ruby slippers and click your heels
So enjoy the veal, I'll be here all week
Just ignore that 2000 mile ice shelf break
cuz when Miami and NY go underwater
I'll be bragging of coal mines and dating my daughter

Do you know the deal?
Enjoy the veal!
Investment banks lie and steal?
Enjoy the veal!
Toxic chemicals in your meal?
Enjoy the veal!
Climate change is real?
Enjoy the veal!

Shredsnack:
No jacket required, neither is your checkbook,
With Nazis on the scene, all you need to bring’s your left hook,
Cuz now we’re on the ropes, democracy’s last hope,
When power and influence are more important than votes,
You ate all the veal and then you drank up all the Kool Aid,
And now it’s time to sleep in the bed that you made,
You’ve become a willing slave to the corporate overlords,
Your vocal cords are severed and you’re out of poster board,
But protest you must, lest we all turn to dust,
And future generations look back on us in disgust,
We’ve been living in the Matrix, oblivious to the faceless,
Are we down for the cause cuz we some rubber bracelets?
All of that is fakeness, you best register your lateness,
Our vanity is shameless, need for validation's aimless,
The only thing certain is that everything changes,
But standing up for what’s right is the true measure of greatness,
So take the reigns in and resist the plutocracy,
They say it's a democracy but I say it's hypocrisy,
it's old news like people hating Jews, comedy
The solution is revolution, no apologies
