Anti-flag – The Economy Is Suffering... Let It Die lyrics

I seen a lot of rip offs in my life
Seen a lot of scams, a lot of crooks
And crooked schemes, crooked sharks
Part one of the story reads
The liquor store thief, the stick-up man
Thrown into the clink, never coming back, yeah!
Until the day he's gray and old
Go!

I've seen a lot of rip offs in my life,
The rip offs of the old and of the young,
The weak, the sick, the never known
Stabbed repeatedly in the back
By the Wall Street suit, the Washington hack
Lining up their pockets with the people's cash
And laughing all the way to the bank

Do you want to live your life a slave?
In chains from the cradle to the grave
The economy is suffering; let it die

Do you want to live your life a slave?
In chains from the cradle to the grave
The economy is suffering; let it die
Yeah!

I've seen a lot of bailouts in my life,
But why is it I never see a bailout
For the homeless and the poor?
And while we're on the subject,
I could use a few bucks
For a guitar amp, a new six string and a tank of gas, yeah!
Everything that I want, that I want!

We're so fucked, and we don't give a fuck, no.
We're so fucked, but no, we just don't care,
'Cause we're so, so fucked, this world is shit outta luck
And we don't give a fuck

Do you want to live your life a slave?
In chains from the cradle to the grave
The economy is suffering; let it die

Do you want to live your life a slave?
In chains from the cradle to the grave
The economy is suffering, suffering; let it die

When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all keep warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm

When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all keep warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm

When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all keep warm
When the cities burn down, we'll all be warm, oh!

We're so fucked. We're so fucked.
