It's not some secret you can hide
If you never run you don't know how
But still it's rooted deep inside
In places that you'll never find

When you have'got privileges
Privileges
You have them all the time
But then, the privilege of privilege is
To turn around and say
"oh, that old thing ain't mine"

That leaking roof is the proof
You see, it's a trickle down economy
Privileges, privileges
Oh that's just privileges

Having them, knowing them
Not wanting them?
Well, that's the privilege of privileges
Seeing them, not being them
Not being them?
Well, that's the privilege of privileges
That's the privilege of privileges

(da, da, da)

It's never being afraid of the police
It's expecting every thank you, every please
It's never fearing that walk home through the night
It;s knowing "Everything will be alright"
Not covering your debt with another loan
It's knowing you could always just go back home

That's the privilege of privileges
That's the privilege of privileges
Privileges, privileges
That's the privilege of privileges
