lyrics

Concrete Slabs and Market Chains
I woke up in a room, in a place I’ve never been
Under the watchful eyes of suited ladies and gentlemen
Perversions in their minds, I’ve just drawn upon the sand
In a conquest of a memory I began

Blurry eyed and hesitant in lands I’ve known before
Cross fire intellectuals spew their toxins readying for war
Down the street a newly elected president has the floor
In uptown they’re readying with their bombs

Concrete slabs & market chains are all that’s left in this town
Foreclosed strip malls, they paint the walls as mom & pops crumble to the ground
Value meal dinners, and super sizing lunch
Wealth before nutrition is how we run

I’ve walked these streets too many times I don’t know what to do
Homelessness is on the rise and they just want to legalize drug use
Are our priorities in question, are we even thinking straight?
Are we still in search of change, or just the escape?

Woke up in a room in a place I’ve never been
Under the watchful eyes of suited ladies and gentlemen
Perversions in their minds, I’ve just drawn upon the sands
In conquest of a memory I began
