There’s a battle that’s been raging since we crawled out ‘the cave
And everyone’s enlisted
Between the haves and the have-nots, battle, cradle to grave
And money’s kept tight-fisted

The elitists keep their power over all working class
With capital enhancement
Some have managed to move up, but many cannot surpass
With no chance for advancement

Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare
Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare

Pharos worked their slaves so hard till prematurely dead
Kings and Queens once ruled, but feared the people chop their heads
Aristocrats read on as solders fight in civil wars
The jungle and the desert battles fought behind close doors

Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare
Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare

That’s the battle that’s been raging since we crawled out ‘the cave
With everyone enlisted
The working class, they manage, struggle, cradle to grave
The poor under assisted

Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare
Warfare, Warfare, I don’t care for
Class Warfare

Companies go under, but the CEOs, they loot
The money from investors in a golden parachute
The workers get a pink slip, though they’ve served for many years
The way they treat their people would bring anyone to tears

Warfare, Warfare, Warfare, Class Warfare
Warfare, Warfare, Warfare, Class Warfare

    General CommentThis song is about, as the title suggests, the struggle between the upper and lower classes. True, in America, the oppertunity to move to a higher class is present, but often difficult. If the county's richest people make up only five percent of it's population, why does it feel like they have more than half it's influence. Still, Tocqueville discovered, as he visited this country, that he was amazed to see the bourgeois and proletariat sit at the same bar and have a bear together, and that's what I love about this country.
    Remember - the richest man in the USA has the same amount of votes that you do at the polls -- 1.
