Another simple mind
Working 9 to 5
Seven days a week
Barely making ends meet

Working paycheck to paycheck
Just to pay the rent
Money saved
Is already money spent

Facing a fallen nation
Where poverty is on the rise
Violence and racial hatred
Make way to a million lies

Too many kids are slayed
To lie in early graves
Put down by gun shots
And outlined in white chalk

The nation turns its back
And it don't see
They're wiping away
All their bad memories

Facing a fallen nation
Where poverty is on the rise
Violence and racial hatred
Make way to a million lies

Another battered mom
And we let this go on
When will see
Something is very wrong?

But we close our eyes
And we all pretend
That somehow all of this
All of this will just end

Facing a fallen nation
Where poverty is on the rise
Violence and racial hatred
Make way to a million lies
