lyrics

woke up today and walked out my door
I saw a crackhead looking to score
his kids go to school on empty stomachs
as the well to do whites are moving in next door
later that day when I got back home
there was a whole bunch of cop cars and he was in one
and they were taking those kids from their mom
even though she did her best all along

and I've got these things in my head and sometimes I think that we're all better off dead because
the world is going to hell or maybe we're already there

the other day, i drove downtown
I saw a homeless shelter being tore down
and right next door what was being put up?
another high dollar high rise full of white collar cunts
tomorrow when I drive around I know I'll see
more and more people crowding up my streets
houses being sold for more than twice what they're worth
while the working class struggles to make ends meet

and I've got these things in my head and sometimes I think that we're all better off dead because
the world is going to hell or maybe we're already there

this is the real wold, not a fantasy,
you think things are ok? Well I see it differently
this isn't how things should be,
lower class being forced to leave
neighborhoods that they helped build
being ripped right from under their feet

gentrify me

and I've got these things in my head and sometimes I think that we're all better off dead because
the world is going to hell or maybe we're already there
