Lyric (x1): [from start]
Hey, little sister, I heard you went to mr
so and so's, knock knock knocking on his
door again last night, said you
needed it bad, you know that ain't right.

Cause so many times, you've come to me,
cry-crying, trying to stop, You said it
hurts so bad, but please don't let you
go back for more.

My little sister is a zombie in a body with no
soul, a role she has learned to play, in a
world today where nothing else matters,
but it matters. We've gotta start feeding

Our souls not our addictions or afflictions of pain to
avoid the same questions we must
ask ourselves to get any answers.
We've gotta start feeding

Our souls have been lost to the millions with lots, who
feed on addictions, selling pills and what's 'hot', And I
wish I could save her from all their delusions,
all the confusion

Of a nation, that starv-es for salvation,
but clothing is the closest approximation to
God, and he only knows that drugs are
All we know of love...

Hey-Eee,
Hey-Eee,
Eee-I-I-I
-I

Everyday, we starve while we eat white
bread and beer instead of a handshake or
hug, we spill the pills and sweep them
under the rug...

My little sister is a zombie in a body with no
soul, a role she has learned to play in a
world today where nothing else matters,
but it matters, we've gotta start feeding our

Sooou-
-ouls, Hey-Ey-Ey
Da- Da- Da- Ya- Ya- Yie...

Outro (x1):

     E9
