Lyrics
No one knows better than McCain
Life is a filthy, dirty game
Very, very hard to win

No one knows better than McCain
How to disregard the pain
Never, never let it in

No one knows better than McCain
That an angry man goes blind
Knocks his head against the wall

No one knows better than McCain
How it hurts the man to fight
That he's human after all

No one knows better than McCain
What a desperate man may do
When it gets too hard to bare

No one knows better than McCain
How to spit on the taboos
As they fucked he never did

No one knew better than McCain
How to care for number one
How to take it never kill

No one knew better than McCain
That when all is said and done
That's the only way to live

No one knew better than McCain
Just how angry you can be
When they cage you in with laws

No one knew better than McCain
That the man who thinks he's free
Knocks his head against the wall

No one knew better than McCain
Just how bitter it would be
To be beaten after all

No one knew better than McCain
They're the ones who fixed the game
Never won with loaded dice

No one knew better than McCain
That they get him all the same
And they made him pay the price

(No man ever was nor ever will be like the man called Hank McCain)
