We all are just slaves from black to white, we all share a dreaded plight
By the greedy hands of the man.
We have been forced into slavery,
be it literally when blacks and Hispanics are forced into the industrialized prison complex that gives stockholders huge dividends as they give the dark skin people huge sentences at the same time rich whites cases for the same crimes get dismisses
Figuratively we all are victims to dreaded debt system of slavery,
can’t pay your mortgage maybe your bills,
welcome to financial hell,
as you become homeless and maybe jobless,
now you’re sleeping next to the people you used to give spare change to
By unlike the car companies and banks,
there is no Obama with bailout money to rescue us from our mistakes!
