lyrics

The windows at the White House have their curtains drawn
Capitol Hill closed down quietly for repairs
The President he wrings his hands and paces on the lawn
Legislators pass time splitting hairs
Now, meanwhile folks are forced to turn the other cheek
‘cause the ugly truth has slapped them in the face
One day they’re clocking full time weeks and the next they’re holding signs out on the street
Drafted into the army of the displaced

When will this Change come through; before or after the bills are due?
Well, perhaps it’s time we settle any doubt.
This is what it means to live the dream when Main Street’s bleeding out

Now, coast to coast folks try their hands at most anything to get by
Going door to door they’re begging for the Change
That was sold and pledged and promised them by the latest partyline
that adds up to a threadbare minimum wage

More families spendin’ time trying to keep their kids in line
Down at the office where the numbered windows wait
When their turn comes I hope it’s not too late, ‘cause Main Street’s bleeding out

Main Street’s bleeding out

Times are tight, belts are too, though it shouldn’t last more than a year or two, right?
That’s the carrot before the mule, my friends, no doubt
Wall Street writes off it’s damages as Main Street bleeds through it’s bandages
Now we ain’t looking for a handout, a bailout or clemency
We just want what’s promised us by birth
The right to life and liberty and to pursue our futures happily
A fair shake and a chance to earn our worth
And if it all comes down we’ll ride the leaders outta town
On a rail and they’ll be lucky if tarred and feathered’s all they get.
You see, it’s half what they deserve, when the powers that be forget who they serve
Well, I hope the coming storm is worth the drought
‘cause Main Street’s bleeding out.

Main Street’s bleeding out
