The walls of the station cry Spray paint prophesy The fires burn out in the distance We were reading to pass time Jimmy Hoffa's buried in the end zone Black helicopters in the sky A big hole where a tower should be OSHA labor spies Why is this train always late? Through sweat and tears we made our stand With picket signs in hand And as the change came rolling in We waited for justice to begin
The rich get richer by eating the poor And when they finish they still expect more We know they have control down to the core They think we won't put up a fight Frustration is a basic human right They fill their homes with lies and deceit Disguised as charity for turtles in the sea They don't have burdens they leave for you and me They have no sense of wrong and right Frustration is a basic human right Now I lay me down to sleep Counting bills instead of sheep If I die before I wake tell them I'm dead You can't keep promises, no point to even try They make it impossible then say that you lied You can't have nice things until you nearly die And you must fight with all your might Frustration is a basic human right


To Mike, the only other person who knows what this song means.
