63 Cents

What can we get for 63 cents?
You sure as fucking hell ain't paying rent
The rent is too damn high
For lack of a home, some people die
What can we get for a buck 25?
Not enough food to stay alive
Cheap food ain't enough to keep you healthy
But it's making Walmart and McDonald's wealthy
What can you get for ten dollars?
Maybe Tussin, but not a real doctor
We got people dyin from preventable shit
Insurance companies just pimpin patients
What can we get for a fiver?
Sure as hell ain't a pack of diapers
Kids in this country can't get what they need
We got grown folks that can't even read
What can we get for three-fifty?
Rich folks on TV think they're nifty
A lot of us struggle to pay for school
Don't wanna end up just another fool

First of all, let me give you a hint
It's not just your 63
It's hers and his, too, from she and he
What do they get for your buck 25?
First of all, they're gettin kinda high
Cocaine, champagne, high-class ladies
Limos and nannies for their babies
What do they get for your ten dollars?
Widespread poverty, while their stacks get taller
With cheap labor, they keep gettin richer
Middle class disappearin from the picture
What do they get for your fiver?
They're blowin shit up like MacGuyver
They got war all the time, on your dime
Profiteering off an army of war crimes
What to they get for your three-fifty?
More cash, better food, they are shifty
Easy life, easy street, you know
The rest of us are headed to skid row
