about

Personal expression of thoughts and feelings about America's class warfare and the grotesque erosion of the principles and liberties this nation was founded upon. Happy Labor Day 2011!

lyrics

Am G Am
Second class citizen got no voice, second class citizen got no choice
Second class citizen just ain't free, second class citizen's a slave to greed.

Am Em Am Em
Greed of the man who has not enough, greed of the state that takes too much
All for one and one for all, has been displaced by winner takes all

Dm Am Dm Am
So have it all and stock your gold, I pity your soul that's running cold
your day in the sun is loud and clear, indifferent to the pain and fear of

Am G Am Am G Am
Second class citizen who’s got no kin, black sheep lost now the herd has thinned
Second class citizen got no chance, second class citizen monkey dance
Am Em Am Em
Second class citizen got no rights, second class citizen's constant fights
Second class citizen no time to feel, second class citizen not time to heal

Dm Am Dm Am
People dying on the street, desperate cries yet you pay no heed
Mansions of glory and the cars out back, Different story when the cards ain't stacked.

Am G Am Am G Am
It used to be this land was fair, through honest means, you’d earn your share
now malicious schemes they rule the air, and the people in charge they just don’t care about

Am G Am Am G Am
Second class citizen got no voice, second class citizen got no choice
Second class citizen just ain't free, second class citizen's a slave to greed.
