lyrics

The salt of the earth are often bitter
the salt of the earth are often better
all give, no take
all bend, no break
The salt of the earth are often bitter

The meek of the earth are often weary
The meek of the earth are often weary
thier forced to wait
inherit much to late
The meek of the earth are often weary

The dregs of the earth are often happy
The dregs of the earth are often happy
won't waste thier time
won't tow your line
The dregs of the earth are often happy

the scourge of the earth are often joyous
the scourge of the earth are often joyous
thier voice they'll raise
but not in praise
the scourge of the earth are often joyous

the meek shall inherit the salty earth
but the scurg and the dregs know what it's worth
