lyrics

You couldn't fit your worries in a pocket
While the cowboy with the money buys the market
It's a pressure exhausting on the ground
Empty desks to spare them the expense
CEO's fuck prostitutes on holiday weekends
It's a pressure exhausting on the ground

It's got me minding stock for the trading thieves
I'd hit the road but they own the streets
The wealthy few that own the laws we write

Symbol of a monetary goal
Some outweigh humanity and they let the rest fall
It's a pressure exhausting on the ground
Elevated crooks refuse to yield
No politics are strong enough to heal
It's a pressure exhausting on the ground

It's got me minding stock for the trading thieves
I'd hit the road but they own the streets
The wealthy few that own the laws we write
Sucking up the air we breathe
I write the song but they change the beat
The wealthy few obsessed with holding lives

When we grow accustomed to hate and greed
We're selling our future away
The shadow market man is praying for apathy
What we need now ain't coming today
These fevered egos never fade
