lyrics

I'm so greedy, I want everyone around me to be happy
I'm so jacked up, I want everyone to be on my fucked up wave length
I'm so jealous, everyone else can have ya, and I'll just wait around

99% Street, that's where everybody and their grandmas meet
You don't have to stand up on your own 2 feet, or make end's meat
99% Street, I got 10 hands to help me
Wake up every morning and zombie off
Work 8:32 to 4:59 everyday
I got 10 hands to help me.
I don't hardly deserve it

I'm an empire, we're all pilgrims
I'm a shelter, I'm a wounded bird
I'm a shattered nerve, I just seem the same
I'm a tear gas cannister, I'm the police department
I been hellbound

Down at 99% Street
It's that 1% that's everything
That I don't have

Come on down to 99% Street
That's where everybody and their grandmas meet
Not everyone can make ends meat.
We got the leverage just that you need.

99% Street. I got 10 hands to help me.
Well it's that little fraction that I don't have
That tiny little fraction. Cut it in 1/2, everything

There's nothing you can invest that can't be lost.
Nothing you can short sell to capitalize on that drop.
I'm so selfish, I'm so helpless, I'm so careless

I'm an empire, we're all pilgrims
I'm a wounded bird, I'm a shattered nerve,
I just seem the same, I'm looking for a shelter
I'm a tear gas cannister, I'm the police department
I been hellbound

about

Paul Chesne Venezia

Why we play music:

For the love of it. Because we’re hungry. To make people happy and dance. To make all the pretty girls cry. Because we’re high. Because we’re low. Because we’re drunk or ascetic. Because we can’t in good conscience do anything else. ... more
