lyrics

The 1% have sold their system to the middle and the working class
Tricked them, they're complacent, and they think they've got a chance
Rich men grab you by the throat, they whisper false hope in your ears
Work hard and you'll get ahead, you're hopeful and you're filled with fear
They won't listen to concerns of poverty or social change
You're never going to get ahead, stop waiting for a better day
And realize we've got the numbers, the middle and the working class will
Kick the chair out from under the capitalists and 1%

The system is rigged
We're slaves, we're slaves
To money, to power
We fight for freedom
When half the world is poor
And the other half are broke
There's no option left
But revolution

It's time to rise up, overthrow whoever thinks they're in control
They don't know they should be scared, they don't know we're coming for them
Locked up safe in their McMansions, comfortable, oblivious
Nows the time to strike, let's hold them all accountable
Greedy bastards, wealthy fat cats, socialites and corporate whores
They have more than they'd ever need, they'd kill their neighbors for some more
Don't let 'em buy their way out this time, they think they're untouchable
Show them that it's over now, cause we won't stand by anymore

The system is rigged
We're slaves, we're slaves
To money, to power
We fight for freedom
When half the world is poor
And the other half are broke
There's no option left
But revolution
