In the unemployment line
Sitting around the welfare office
Waiting for the food stamps to come in
Our eyes meet and we both know
Sitting on the sidewalk
Getting jacked up
Waiting to be booked and released
Our eyes meet and we both know
Everybody knows authority is just abuse anyway
Everybody knows it's just no use anyway
So kill your elected officers today
We will win
You got your eyes on me when I'm in your store
Cuz you know I've got to steal just to eat
But your boss don't pay you shit
You're one check away from
Being homeless just like me.
Lower class, middle class, no class we're all the same
We got all the bosses, we got landlords, we all play the slavery game
They've got the guns but we got the numbers.
When the people are one we will be unstoppable
Everybody knows employment is just abuse anyway
Everybody knows its just no use anyway
So Kill your boss today
We will win
At your eviction
Your landlord throws your shit out on the street
He's got help from his best friend, the pigs
There's really no way to explain it to your kids
Now we're in the soup line
Next door to the supermarket Mega-store
We know it's only a matter of time
Before we kick down the door and
Take away everything
And everybody knows wealth is abuse anyway everybody knows it's no use anyway
So kill your land lord today
We Will Win

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
