I've stood with the opposition
But I can't stand in line
I've heard their propisitions
We're running out of time

To use the clear channels
to use the proper phrase
when they have their signals
they have the radio waves
and while the cities tear themselves to shreds
these motherfuckers sleep soundly in their bed

Sold their toxic and steel
war machine pistons
watch it collapse on the lesser
from a safe distance

From what privilege we speak
of the emptiness of wealth
without the knowledge
of empty stomachs
of deteriorating health
of summer nights you slept in the bath tub
to avoid stray bullets

cause wealth can be empty
but poverty is crushing
there's a wound in our chest
and they're helping the gushing
of blood
of tears
of the sweat from your brow
if there ever was a time to act
that time is fucking now
so the next time they talk of bootstraps
of teaching to fish
remember corporate america
is trying to make you it's bitch
cause the only thing that trickles down
is hate and exploitation
and we're choking to death
in this sick nation

We're choking to death
and things gotta change
I can't believe it'll always be this way
Tomorrow holds such better days
I just gotta believe that we can change
We can change
