    Original Banksters

    Money is their middle name
    Profit is their only game
    Smiling much like Cheshire cats
    Prowling just like desert rats
    Their pain and pleasure is the same

    Concealing their identity
    Looking just like you and me
    Flashing pretty pearly whites
    Taking little interest bites
    Till we think this was meant to be

    They cannot let your money grow
    Cause that would stop their ebb and flow
    With every loan they hold you near
    Squeezing blood from every tear
    And you feel every body blow

    All through the neighborhood they roam
    Kick in doors to every home
    Taking food from every child
    Acting like some fools gone wild
    Cursing like that dude in Rome

    The lust for blood within their eyes
    They love the fear of asking whys
    Wearing masks of cruel deception
    They welcome you with warm reception
    And steal your soul with clever lies

    We call these institutions banks
    They take our cash without no thanks
    They do to us what we don’t deserve
    Under orders from the fed reserve
    We need to get some goddann tanks

    Taken prisoner, our money becomes theirs in a blink of an eye. You certainly know how to turn a phrase brother oldsoul, yet another timely scribe.

    This what makes my warm blood boil,
    they profit from our deep rich soil

    throw us their bones and call it chow,
    then beat us till we cry out loud

    Will we ever see the light of day?
    for centuries they always had their way

    They got it so bad with this thing of gaming,
    till they now piss in our face and tell us it's raining!

    Now every thangs falling including the banks,
    we sure do need to bring on them tanks​
