Dirty streets strewn with broken glass
Hydrants spewing hydra's ash
Hurrying along and walking past
Homeless vets on cyberblast

Armor up trying not to care
But sucked in by this woman's stare
I dig deep and try to share
Change that is my metro fare

A city ruled by sycophants
Of corporate cash and corporate grants
Developers rule plantational style
The poor and black don't have a chance

I'll give some change or a cigarette
But down deep I seeth with rage
Towards those who have but never pay
Their share of what they take away

Lets build it now and build it deep
Take back our city and our world
With red and black flags unfurled
