lyrics

It doesn’t end like this, they don’t get to win.
This is a cheat, we won’t take the short end
Keep us scrambling for scraps, while they make off with the bank
take us from behind and expect us to say thanks

Well the war is over, the fight was fixed
a campaign to make you poor, while they stay rich.
This isn’t the last chapter, i’m turning the pages back
we’ve been defending too long, let’s plot a counter attack

You just, live life like you’re under siege
you can’t pay bills with praise, you can’t eat prestige

I’ve been down so long, I stopped making up jokes
I’d need some investors to get up to broke
and it’s like: 1,2,3,4, they declared a class war
and all we declared was bankruptcy

Neverending struggle, neverending strife
you did a great job, better luck next life
they look down at us, riding high in the stirrup
they kick us while we’re down, how about we kick them while they’re up?

You just, live life like you’re under siege
you can’t pay bills with praise, you can’t eat prestige
