That's the man you gotta give it to we pay him our rent to have a hole in our roof and when our neighbors burned it was only because of telephone cords Trash on sidewalks, broken windowpanes, the pipes are leaking they ain't gonna fix it 'til it's too far gone they're gonna wash us away we've got to say you've got to fan the flames you've got to stand up and break the chains make a plan and demand what the damage pays fan the flames in the dark and the bitter cold they're freezing us out, it's as good as gold between the vacant homes are fancy doorbells wrapped with ribbon and bow getting hard to stay in tune the boys are getting me down, i'll be staying in my room but when the yuppies push us out the boys are picking me up and sticking around that's the man you gotta give it to time and time again he plays us for a fool and when our neighbors burned the realtors shook hands with their backs turned
oh baby, gotta get out the map, i'm somewhere down I can't find I been watchin the clock anyplace but not the right time yeah and under the sun lace up my boots and go on gotta strike the match let it burn when all the smoke was clearing out oh yeah, I was on my own. I ain't coming home to you. I was born to roam the streets Yeah They say a man lives in chains but he is born free he's born free I was in the thick of it, boy, I was in the pines I followed a crippled creek back to the source and I went inside And now i'm inside the days been growing stranger I been holdin' up fists of rage and I need a change But you been getting lazy this time I got you dead to rights and i'm ready to fight
Been trying for the heart of me you know we ain't livin' up on easy street if you need a friend, lord knows I been down'n'out again and again who will fall? And who's gonna answer when they get that call? So hold it close, keep it safe I know that you'll be with us when we make them pay I see you and I know what's at stake You see me and you know we can't wait like so many before us, we find ourselves one with the history behind us and once again with the rich and the cops against us where ya gonna be in a year or two? I'm not gonna let 'em get the best of you it's not too late but what you're gonna do, that's up for debate whose side are you on? The factory wheels'll keep spinnin along it ain't cut and dried and it never will but the fightin' baby that's half of the thrill
when you see something that makes you sick do you button up or do you bleed? Well I don't claim to know what's right but I can see there's a growing need at what point is enough enough and do I walk away? I'm taking time whatever I do i'm working hard whatever I do with you I know they don't like the way that I walk don't like the way that I talk don't like the clothes that I wear don't like the way that I cut my hair I won't bow my head to another man I won't bite my lip and curtsy what's binding us together ain't no common sense or decency and my name will be on your lips on your dying day you don't know who you're tanglin with i'm a bad bitch if I please i've done it before and i'll do it again I brought many a man to his knees i'll look you in the eyes and tell you what I gotta say
