lyrics

Nowadays we are run by the almighty dollar sign
Hoping that we’ll get rich the minuet we fall in line
The problem is that’s a lie to keep the status quo
Anger’s building, this gasket’s about to blow
(Because of You)
We’re living in a fascist state
(Because of you)
And this whole nation is a fucking scam
(Because of You)

Now the divide is big and the rich don’t share
We only speak our minds, because we really care
Wages are low and the prices are up
Which fucking sucks, I can’t afford my lunch
So save your money and count your ducks
Because you can’t survive on a hundred bucks

Bad T.V and thoughtless pop music have blanked our minds
Turned us all in to ignorant sheep eyes closed to all the lies
When we head to economic despair where do we go to rot?
When your government’s tyrannical whose heads are they going to chop? (yours)
(Because of You)

We’ve reached the point of a civil war (Because of You)
And everyone now knows the score (Because of You)

Now the divide is big and the rich don’t share
We only speak our minds, because we really care
Rent is high and morale is low
Not quite sure who’s friend or foe
We all just need to open our eyes
See the truth and read between the lines

We’re not talking shit, just calling a spade a spade
We were meant to live, not be broken and enslaved
Now this country’s torn with problems they say don’t exist
What’s to stop big brother from putting you down on their list?

Now the divide is big and the rich don’t share
We only speak our minds, because we really care
This class war is fucking real
Either raise your fists or just learn to deal
Stop live tweeting, start fighting back
The body count is rising and there’s more to stack

I’m not saying its wrong that we struggle trying to get along
So here you go United States another fucking protest song.
