If you've got scared money
Always lay it down
If you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out of his way

They see you walking in
With a target on your chest
They see you at your work
But they want you at your best

Ain't nowhere to run
You in far too deep
The climb is far to high
The fall is far to steep

If you've got scared money
You always lay it down
If you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out his way

So welcome to my world
Go on take a chair
There's demons in your drink
And evil eyes are everywhere
Only hope that you gonna have
[?] and well
Either bow down now
Or come in for the kill

Cause if you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got scared money
You always lay it down

There's terror in your eyes
Too afraid to blink
You're too afraid to swallow
I know what you think
You're up against the wall
The killer in your sight
The read the death slowly
Get back up and fight

If you've got scared money
Run you out of town
If you've got scared money
You always lay it down
If you've got the small stack, Jack
Best not be afraid
Either take the king down
Or get out of his way

    Song MeaningWritten as an open letter to Jacobin Magazine and other intellectual journal editors, this song speaks back in the voice of the anonymous, missing leader(s) of the now failed Occupy Wall Street Movement.

    Jacobin Magazine, (or Jack), enjoyed the attention it received its ongoing criticism that the Occupy Wall Street Movement was without leadership. Unable to answer back, here is the obvious explanation. Fear for their and their families' lives. Peaceful movement and civil rights leaders from Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr., Kennedy were killed for appearing as peaceful leaders. Conspiracy theories aside, even spiritual leaders devoted entirely to helping the powerless and the exploited must be surrounded by body guards to walk down the street. Consumer advocates and whistle blowers have hits put out on them, their are families threatened. Why the intellectual journalists were unable to understand this seeming obvious phenomenon of "killing the leader" is unclear. Instead of noticing or having concern for the leaders safety, they reduced the "We Are the 99%" in print to drum circles and carnival gatherings. The leaders would have been run out of town. Actual lives are at stake.

    Jacobin Magazine also criticized the movements' use of slogans that referred to "Taking down the 1%", as not being "peaceful". There is nothing peaceful about what happens to move people to spend their lives in protest. They are fatally putting themselves in harms way to make progressive change. Without them generations of their family and the public suffers. History has shown that killing the peaceful leader, the whistle blowers and even consumer advocates isn't beyond the means or morals those in power.

    Seems like it should've been obvious to the powerful intellectuals at Jack Magazine.
