Bones beneath the shovel's blade
That's what the radio said
Years ago a pay off made
Build a mall on top of the dead

80,000 undergound
80,000 not a sound
80,000 nameless souls
Brothers, sisters of us all

A mother in her cotton dress
A little baby taken in distress
A hobo with a kindly face
There was a daughter of a southern slave

80,000 undergound
80,000 not a sound
80,000 nameless souls
Brothers, sisters of us all

Bulging wallets, empty hearts
The walking dead push shopping carts
What price human dignity?
Betrayed because of poverty

80,000 undergound
80,000 not a sound
80,000 nameless souls
Brothers, sisters of us all
