The words:
Go to your church and pray to your god
Then home to your couch to root for your gladiator

Learn all about turning your cheek
Feeding the poor and helping the weak

Then home to support the richest of all
Those great men who know how to handle a ball

You know all their numbers, you know all their names
You’re home every Sunday to watch all their games

You know they don’t give a damn about you
They’d be your opponents for a million or two

You might say hey chill out it’s only a game
Do you go to the movies, is that not the same

And you’d have a good point and I don’t disagree
We have strange priorities in our society

Nurses and teachers are just getting by
While athletes and actors get most of the pie

Actually their slice is relatively small
Compared to their owners, billionaires all

But let’s not be conscious of obvious facts
Consume beer and pizza and try to relax

It’s been a tough week and we need some release
So spare me your preaching and pass me a piece

Then back to the grind on the following day
More important work for far less pay

Don’t bother thinking what’s it all for
As long as your team had the best score

And if for some reason they came off as meek
Maybe they’ll make it up the following week

When you can…
Go to your church and pray to your god
Then home to your couch to root for your gladiator (repeat until end)
