The Economy Is Suffering, Let It Die

Nell’album intitolato “The People or the Gun”‎

The People or the Gun
I've seen a lot of rip-offs in my life.
Seen a lot of scams.
A lot of crooks and crooked schemes, crooked sharks.
Part one of the story reads...
The liquor store thief.
The stick up man.
Thrown into the clink,
never coming back until the day he's grey and old.
I seen a lot of rip-offs in my life.

The rip-offs of the old and the young, the weak, the sick,
the never known.
Stabbed repeatedly in the back by the Wall Street suit.
The Washington hack.
Lining up their pockets with the people's cash and...

Laughing all the way to the bank.
Do you want to live your life as a slave?
In chains from the cradle to the grave.
The economy is suffering, let it die...
I seen a lot of bailouts in my life.
But why did I never see a bailout for the homeless and the poor?
And while we're on the subject
I could use a few bucks for a guitar amp.
A new six string, and a tank of gas.
Everything that I want...

We're so fucked and we don't give a fuck, no.
We're so fucked, but no we just don't care, no.
We're so fucked, this world is shit out of luck
and we don't give a fuck.

When the cities burn down we'll all be warm.
When the cities burn down we'll all keep warm.
When the cities burn down we'll all be warm.‎
