Song Description

This song was written at the depths of the Great Financial Crisis in 2008 as Wall Street was being bailed out while Main Street was losing their jobs. The growing income inequality and the bailout of the rich at the expense of the poor created a sense of frustration with the government, and big business.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written at the depths of the 2008 Financial Crisis,as the big banks and Wall Street were being bailed out and the masses were facing unemployment.


The economy's still crashing
And long unemployment lines
There's no work nowhere
But Wall Streets doing just fine

Bankers and their friends
Say the markets are free
They're making all the money
But it's killing you and me

How'd We Get Here?
Some people got so much
But the rest of us are getting poor
The greedy are eating our lunch

The homeless a wanderin'
Shelters are closing down
Government got no money
They're setting fire to downtown

The factories are closing
Jobs are going overseas
The rich are getting richer
But the worker's on his knees


Fat cats count their millions
Champagne on 5th Avenue
The rest of us are counting on
Food stamps just to make it through

No answer to this crisis
Won't somebody confess?
They just hired the same bankers
To come clean up their own damn mess.
