Hit me on the street while waiting to do nothing
Where within the space can anything feel certain?
Look into the future make out the word speak
Send in the spies to watch them

Creepy are the people unable to do something
Sitting on an armchair fenced in their creation
Look up to be there anywhere is somewhere
Itchy past scratch the itch

(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)

Feel about a nation
So precious is the freedom
Carousel the brass ring
Reach into a black mass
So it's corroded
So it's polluted
We all want some of it

Maybe all the people now left without no loving
Where with all the strength gone better see it coming
Get off the fence trip
Rip up the garbage
Make it up to the earth, bitch

(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)

Be a politician
Eroding all your freedoms
Down the rabbit hole cracks
Money markets fall
Through a looking glass
Time becomes too fast
All to benefit the rich

So keep eating from the apple
Inches from the center
Shaken to the core
Until it doesn't matter
No one to turn to
Nowhere to run to
Better the bomb to blow it

(Hit me)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(Hit me! Hit me!)
(In the streets)
Hit me in the streets
(HOLD IT!! Now just hold it right there! This is the-)

    General CommentI agree that this, as with all the songs on this album, are about the political climate and specifically catered to what was the upcoming 2004 election at the time. However, this song is definitely NOT about prostitution. This song is about the title, the "Greater Wrong of the Right" (the right wing that is). This song is calling for a grass roots rebellion, a revolution from the streets. Ohgr is pointing out in his typically poetic stylings all the faults of this government. If this song is about any one specific issue being faced in that election, it would be the Patriot Acts and AUMF (Authorization for the Use of Military Force), giving the President unprecedented authority to erode our freedoms, particularly our right to privacy, all so that he and his fat-cat, oil-hording friends can turn some extra profit ("Be a politician, eroding all your freedoms, down the rabbit hole cracks, money markets fall, through a looking glass, time becomes too fast, all to benefit the rich")

    General CommentYeah, I just love how NOBODY even made an attempt at talking about the actual topic of the song..... The most logical meaning I've heard for this song I read on a Skinny Puppy forum.... basically, the whole Cd"The Greater Wrong of the RIght" is about different subjects that were big during the election time, and this song is supposed to be about prostitution.. Which was an issue during the election, and "Goneja" is about pot..another issue during that time.
