lyrics

Shifting, sifting lines of children
Rocking, blocking nights away
Bleeding, stealing taking it from them
Innocence too much to pay

Silk between their fingertips
Polka dots instead of brains
Paisley tightly pulled around her
Clothing her in toxic waste

Take it from them one percent
And hide it where they’ll never find
Line their country’s walls with dollars
Bleed us dry and we’ll up rise

All the money in the world
Won’t save you if you drown
Torch your banks and watch them burn
Ashes, ashes, They all fall down!
