lyrics

Left no options, home evictions,
these men in suits condemn our fate
Sad ones wear frowns, kicked my door down
and marched my ideals to the county jail

Do their privileges work against us?
Now we realize we have to react.

This monopoly that disgusts me,
states abuse illegitimate violence
to maintain the status quo
Could I use it if I knew things were gonna change?

Mum’s expecting, laws rejecting
and in the end it all boils down to this
Slanted futures
they will use your paper slips to buy a sweeter life

Is there anybody to defend us?
Now they’ve gone and taken the little we had.

This monopoly that disgusts me,
states abuse, it’s nothing new
to maintain the status quo
Could I use it if I knew things were gonna change?
