Track Name: H.T.F.
When you fall on hard times
The hard times fall on you
You may not give a fuck
About me so I give two

Pull yourself up by the bootstraps
You say that's what I oughta do
It's kinda hard to pull anything
When you got holes in your shoes

Nobody offers you a handout
But would you take it if they did
There's a fine line, between your pride
And living in the red

So you go to the factory
And sign on the dotted line
Just give up your hopes and dreams
And you'll fit in just fine

You look down your nose at me
From your ivory tower
It must be nice to feel secure
Wielding all that power

I'd like to see you push a broom
I'd pay to see your hands bleed
Never worked a day in your life
Never experiencing basic human needs

Track Name: Murder of Crows
Murder Of Crows

Tell us they have all the answers
Four years later and the country's still not any different
Bloated prisons, starving children
And the homeless still sleep on the ground

While the profit margins soar
While the rich prepare the wars
Together we swarm
A murder of crows

Benign but not immune to cancer
Casting ballots to the paid off, bought off, sold off, run off
Don't expect to find the answers
From the top down, the lies of reform

While injustice plagues the poor
While the tyrants fight for more
Together we swarm
A murder of crows
Track Name: Standing At The Trough
The propaganda machine
The recycled news
Privatized, distorted
Await what the Fox spews
Standing at the trough
Choking on soundbites
The throngs of aliterate
It's poor against poor
Apolitical amoral
From the ground to the floor
Standing at the trough
Choking on the lies
Pointing at your brothers
Indifferent as they die
