the scramble was caused by a screw left dislodged
the cables could no longer mend
amble was paused by fool at a loss
the crisis that signaled an end
cause, blame -- reacting to the fight
it never is quite right or true
the laws, the shame -- illusions of our rights
gaining is the plight we rue
we rambled and fought, while the cables held taught, impending though soon they would bend
while men who were bought, held like fools at the slots, drinking and betting again
pause, sustain -- reacting to the plight
it never is quite right or true
laws, exchange -- our belts are getting tight
deflated by the rights we lose
pause, recede -- won't come back, won't come back
laws, reprieve -- still homes fall and banks crawl
gamble on, our credit's done
we need to change, the time has come.
jobs are gone, and others wronged
the few who won, have left the gun.
the scramble was caused by a screw left dislodged
the cables could no longer mend
amble was paused by fool at a loss
the crisis that signaled an end
