you point your finger it so easy to do just remember there are three pointing right back at you you set yourself up you're the only one to blame still you never see it coming and the result is always the same when the party's over and everyone is gone there's a ringing in your ears that lingers on you feel bamboozled, hoodwinked, fooled, and swindled you been conned you been conned defeated, beated, cheated, you been conned I gotta a swamp for sale in Miami a bridge in Williamsburg tell you a touching story and make up every single word you listen quite intently not like you got much of a choice cause I'm the one with the microphone and I got the loudest voice And I say eat the rich Eat the rich with milk and honey Let them eat cake and we'll take their money Time to stretch out the rack And crack the whip The crucifix's out back I'm done with this shit I know a guy with a guillotine Slice off their heads nice and clean We got Sig Sauer for the firing line The finest snipers money can buy There's a scaffold for hanging and praise the lord Old sparky has found his extension cord So let's waterboard some CEOs Break some fingers, cut off some toes Pull out their nails Each time a bank fails There should be a bloodletting for betting on stocks Stocks! that's where these cocks should be Right in the center of town Where everyone can see Mock and shame and break their crown So all you billionaires come on down Bring your friends all your kin and heirs And be saved by your own thoughts and prayers when the party's over and everyone is gone there's a ringing in your ears that lingers on you feel bamboozled, hoodwinked, fooled, and swindled you been conned you been conned defeated, beated, cheated, you been conned

about

Bitter Pill New Hampshire

A tight-knit family, (literally father and daughter) who play a dark and anachronistic twist of folk, blues, bluegrass, country, and rock – mixed with original spoken word as well as reading from classical literature.
A foot stompin’, hand clappin’, spirited, cross-genre rhythm and bluegrass ensemble.
