Where We Came From.

Well the old will get older, the rich will get richer
and the young will get wiser, and then they'll forget
where they came from for a while
before you can remind them
you might think that they have forgotten
what happened a lifetime ago, when this state was rotten
right down to its bones, I hope we don't do the same again.
 
But we've been sold right down this river before so we know
surely this can't be the only way to go.
 
Well I've heard you all talking about the days
when the streets paved with gold were covered with waste
and the people with keys to the kingdom are like secret police
and to stand up for what was right and just
meant going on strike and biting the dust
while your fellow man is lining his pockets with your dreams
 
And I pray that those days will never return
hoping this isn't the only day we will learn.
 
So we'll stand up now and we will take heart
from the decade that almost blew this country apart
and we'll learn from the lessons, if you're ready to teach
so we can all earn in equal compare
just what we deserve, and breathe the free air
of a country that can't be that far out of reach
 
And then the old will get older, the rich will get richer
and the young will get wiser, and then they'll forget
where they came from for a while
before we can remind them
