Story behind the song
this song was originally inspired by my step-daughter's accounts of her high school experience...that was eight years ago or so...then the Occupy movement came along and it seems to encapsulate what's going on there, as well
Lyrics
YOU N? ME Fill the kids? heads full of factoids Fill the kids? heads full of pills Keep ?em moving, keep ?em busy Never give ?em time to breathe Teach obedience from the get-go Wonder why they go insane Chor: The education situation Based on games of domination Cannot function honestly The wheels turn round The number crunches Who pays the bill? It?s you and me Give the people easy answers Tell ?em what they want to hear No need to change their way of living The problem?s somewhere over there Give ?em freedom to make money That?s the only kind they need Chor. governmental situation Line your pockets line your bankbooks Take everything that ain?t nailed down The poor deserve their poverty, yeah God loves the rich this time around The bottom line is all that?s holy No need to care who hits the ground Chor. Economic situation You can buy all kinds of poison Eat smoke and drink it every day Grow the wrong herb in your garden The cops?ll come, blow you away Don't confuse 'em with the truth, no Prohibition's here to stay Chor: legalization situation We don?t rise up and smash the system It?s how we live and see our friends We pledge allegiance to the Dark Lord With every dollar that we spend So round and round the spiral rumbles Down and down until the end The civilization situation Based on games of domination Cannot function honestly The wheels turn round The number crunches Who makes the change? It?s you and me!
