RS Cain
Strike It Rich
 
Lyrics
I got somethin on my mind
We left somethin far behind
Somethin's goin on I just don't understand
Folks that used to be so kind
Have gone and lost their minds
There's a cloud of darkness spreadin cross the land
It's The left versus the right
The loose against the tight
But no one knows exactly who is which
So the Muslims hate the Jews
And the Christians in their pews
And everybody wants to strike it rich

CHORUS:
They're robbing us of our humanity
They take a little more each day
There's not much left of our sanity
Our idol's feet are made of clay


So it's White versus Black
The Jills against the Jacks
Everybody's got an axe to grind
Agnostics kill the Christers
There's no shortages of shysters
There's even those who want to dust the blind
Little kids with guns and pills
Want to kill and feel the thrill
Like modern zombies set to evil work
While their poppas and their mommas
Take a cruise to the Bahamas
And show the natives how to be a jerk

CHORUS:
They're robbing us of our humanity
They want a little more each year
There's not much left of our sanity
We can't survive with all this fear

We got TV news and beer
No one's views on news are clear
'Cause we gotta know who's doin what to who
There's kids without no shoes
And leaders with no clues
While the doers keep on doin what they do
We better make it stop
Or we'll finally blow our top
Beginning the beginning of the end
You ask me "who will save us?"
there's no Superman or shamus
It's gotta be you and me my friend

I never signed up for this,
I been screwed but not been kissed
And I never even felt the act at all
If I'd a seen it comin
You know I'd been a' runnin
I'd never listen to the siren's call
There's kids without no shoes
And leaders with no clues
But no one knows exactly who is which
It's The left versus the right
The loose against the tight
And everybody wants to strike it rich
