lyrics

As I went rolling down that ribbon of highway
This land is my land isn't what I'd say
Signs that I'm passing blast no trespassing
Cash rules everything, which means I'm just a target
Profit, the god that's king on the market
Bring on the rocket launchers that knock us all unconscious
Thirty thousand children die and never hear
Who don't have to, but still get killed that's why I ask you

How many mothers cried today?
How many looked up at the sky and prayed to try and find a way?
Yea, how many children died today?
How many workers gave their lives away so you could live it up?
Huh? How many mothers cried today?
How many looked up at the sky and prayed to try and find a way?
Yea, how many children died today?
How many workers gave their lives away so you could live it up?

Nature is the mother, labor is the father
Capitalism is a rapist that's straight raking it all in
They're balling, the top five percent has got a lot of rent
While I ain't got a single red cent, so I'm dead bent
Liquor in my liver is like religion in my brain
Helping me maintain 'cause I can't withstand the pain
Drain, my blood like vampires my man fired
For being minutes late, got him in a mental state
Man, I hate the way they got it set up, gotta get away
But not a vacay, revolution is my revelation
Never devastation, patient, mind on the hurt
Mine in the dirt where my great grandpa died at his work

How many mothers cried today?
How many looked up at the sky and prayed to try and find a way?
Yea, how many children died today?
How many workers gave their lives away so you could live it up?
Huh? How many mothers cried today?
How many looked up at the sky and prayed to try and find a way?
Yea, how many children died today?
How many workers gave their lives away so you could live it up?
