The Artist Presently Known As Ed in economics, family dynamics, values, wordplay

Rake in the profit
You didn't need the fam'ly
You betrayed me first...

Skeletons in closets
Touch the sacred and taboo
Before I was born

Sell out family
Get some dead and some angry
Laughing to the bank!

Trailer prayers reek of
Things I can not speak of here
Let us prey, my love...

Promised me shelter
Offer good till I go out
Awakened Buddha

Five hundred fifteen thou!
Richer than sin, don'tcha know?
Jubilee justice?

Hatred tango tears
Two many lives apart
Unraveling web
