eat the rich

well you know it doesn't make me feel better to hear
that along with his new orders for the world
the president has said that no one in russia will starve this year
and you know it doesn't make me feel any better
that somewhere on the corner of wall street and the 5th street park
in between the soup line and the presidential yacht
i lost a friend
leaning on the sidewalk there, he lost himself

well he said, i'm not feeling much better today
i'm starting to feel crushed and i got nowhere to go
used to feel that someday i'd be able to get home
now i just feel beat
well you know it was the last time that i saw him
it was starting to get cold, he'd stopped talking 'bout a home
somewhere in the night was when he left the world alone
next morning the city crew took in another john doe

so you know it doesn't make me feel any better to hear about
an evening in the banquet hall at a thousand bucks a plate
a hundred rich white men all sitting round talking about just how great this country is
but they can't say that no one in hillcrest will starve this year

so you know it doesn't make me feel any better to hear
that along with his new orders for the world the president has said
that no one in russia will starve this year
when he can't even say that no one in cleveland will starve this year
no one in dc will starve this year
no one in kent will starve this year....
