    I'm trapped in a world.
    A world hat don't like my kind.
    Why you ask?
    `Cause I'm my kind.
    And they are they kind.
    Our kinds don't mix.
    Little Red men,
    Walking around in Giant Black suits.
    Giant Green men,
    Walking around in Pink, High-water bellbottoms with no t-shirts.
    You wanna know why?
    `Cause clothes make the man.
    They walk around looking up at me,
    But they eyes is really looking down.
    I get my hands dirty everyday trying to live,
    While they laugh and play at company picnics.
    I make they cars run.
    I make they cars clean.
    I make they house warm.
    I make everything,
    But I ain't got ish.
    I'm trapped here.
    I wanna be a farmer.
    Can't plant my seeds in asphalt.
    My children wanna be doctors and lawyers,
    Can't teach them what I don't know.
    Children wanna be born with Giant Black suits,
    Not Pink, High-water bellbottoms with no t-shirts.
    `Cause clothes make the man.
    They don't wanna make everything
    And get nothing.
    They wanna do nothing,
    And get everything.
    Poor children.
    Maybe I shouldn't fight to live.
    But that's all I know.
    To live is to fight.
    I'm so confused.
    All I se are Iron towers,
    And more Iron towers.
    With Little Red men,
    With their Little Red wives.
    I make everything.
    While they sit on they porch
    Drinking they high priced lemonade.
    I get it freshly squeezed.
    They buy new antenas,
    I use hangars(sometimes paper clips)
    They live to live,
    I live ready to die.
    I get on my knees and pray to God.
    They act like god,
    While they look up at me,
    With they eyes looking down.
