I was inspired to write this after going to the Occupy Wall Street Protests in NYC


(Verse 1)
Let's go back to economics 101
Capitalism's based on competition and corporations got none

They own Congress, they own the airwaves
They own us from 9 to 5 like a bunch of modern day slaves

They own the newspapers, they own the TV
They own exploding oil wells at the bottom of the sea

They own the president, the own the media
Exxon Mobil, Bank of America, Wall St, Wal-Mart, Expedia

They tell us trust in the markets, well the markets have spoken
The banks, the government, the whole system is broken

We're headed down to Wall St with a posse and the facts
Gonna find Mr. Goldman so we he can lick our Sachs

This shit is wack, these men are on crack, their heads need a good freakin’ smack
Our country's been hijacked by a pack of kleptomaniacs

Who think the greenback is an aphrodisiac, we ain’t some communist brat pack
We're the 99%, and we're takin' this country back

Rise up, people rise up
It's time to open our eyes up
The wicked won't give their disguise up
Hypnotize you into givin' your prize up...nah...

Rise up, people rise up
Look through the lies and wise up
Breathe deep and offer your cries up
Get to the well before it dries up
Open your eyes...good people rise

(Verse 2)
You've kept us in line with two dollar wine
Cheap flat screen TVs, cheap leased SUVs

Cheap plastic crap from China and talkin’ iPhones
iPods, eye candy video of predator drones

But like little girls and boys, we've grown out of these toys
And we're starvin’ while you grow fatter, we want the things that really matter

Good health care, good schools, good jobs, good rules
Good Wall St. cops to keep an eye on you fools

You treat this country like a Turkish harem, I ain't your bitch, this ain't Istanbul
You freakin' tool, I'm tired of corporate misrule, objection your honor...Overruled!

You lied and took us for a ride, don't tell us we're not qualified
To preside over this situation, we're the 99% and we're takin’ back this nation!!!

We're occupying Wall St ‘cause we love the USA
You treat it like John the Baptist was treated by Salome
I want the top 1% to listen carefully to what I say,
We can fix this shit now or wait for Bastille Day...
