lyrics

Hate the poor, take what they have/ Claim their lives are not so bad/ Say welfare shouldn’t exist/ Spend thousands to test their piss/ Taxes too high but not for war/ Fault those with less not with more/ Show empathy, you say, “What for?”

I dare you to try to survive in this illusion you call the safety net. Then for once, you might see how your most basic needs can’t be met
Feed your kids from food stamps, coupled with the shame of being unemployed. The way you portray this as a luxury, you should be absolutely overjoyed
Try to go get one of those jobs you steadfastly claim that the wealthy create. If you’re lucky enough to ever get hired, you can work full-time at part-time pay

So, what’s it like? How does it feel? Relying on charity for your each and every meal
Turns out it’s fucked. It’s not so fun. Now that you’re the one who’s been labeled as worthless scum
Your intentions mean nothing. Your efforts are mocked. Been back to the drawing board so many times you’ve run out of chalk
You’re deemed as useless. Unemployed for too long. Now you’re the scapegoat and to blame for all that’s wrong
