    Working class heroes
    Sacrifice most
    Day after day
    Hustle and cope

    Holmes over there,
    Why should you care
    Life just ain't fair...
    Breathing my air ~

    Time clock I'm on
    Waits for no one
    Laid off again,
    Won't get it done

    Son of a gun
    Sign toting bum
    Down on your luck?
    I'm not having none

    Self induced high
    Blowing our minds
    We are such stuff
    Life's leaving behind

    One on one crime
    Black genocide
    AIDS
    On our side
    Our own homicide

    Before you die
    Duty don't shirk
    Thinking aloud...
    Silence don't work
