lyrics

Bank of America -- Land of the Fee
They raised my rate to 29.93
I'm drowning in debt, Jesus help me
If god had a name for it he'd call it usury

Bank of America --like a BOA constrictor
Squeezing every nickel out of your sphincter
They with their honeys decked out in mink fur
Like bugs bunny sayin, "ain't I a stinker?"

Then there's citi bank getting all rank
Cuz of all the cdo kool-aid that they drank
Like Frankenstein, they're sewn and rank
Now they're swank got the people to thank

Those fools, think they all cool,
pooling mortgages and sitting by the pool
We are lab rats following their rules
They see money, can't help but drool

The story of the collapse needs be explained
The cause of the mess who should be blamed
The bull sees red and must be tamed
The perpetrators of the collapse must be named.

Countrywide's CEO, Anthony Mozilla
Stuffing 400 hundred million under his pilla
Selling out America and buying a villa
Retired on a pile of hundred dolla billas

Making bank pulling checks with 7 zeros
He gave out houses playing the hero
His prey now dodging calls, living in fear-o
Suckas as cruel as emperor nero.


Don't push us cuz we're close to the edge
We're trying not to lose our home-steads
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.

Henry Paulson, department of the treasury, he's a predata
Bailed out his goons but not his competitors.
Bear Sterns imploded, Lehman Collapsed,
And what led to crash derivative contracts
Meanwhile AIG sold insurance by the stacks
To know the enemy is to know the facts


Goldmans called up AIG caused it to flop
With a little tool called Credit Default Swaps
When they pay off the treasury holding the mop
When the people rise up, pay off the cops

I got a solution! Stock and Bonds
Get the fiends on the green to right the wrongs
They've got the money but we've got the throngs
Rise them up on a pitchfork between the prongs.

Don't push us cuz we're close to the edge
We're trying not to lose our home-steads
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.

Owning a home seemed like a good idea to me
So I took out a mortgage in 1983
It was a nice little house with a couple oak trees
I paid it off, month by month endlessly

Paid my bill faithfully
Then the bankster turned on me
and their robots
foreclosed wrongfully

The location of our residence has so much resonance
That the worlds people and presidents can see the precedence
Of Martin Luther King and Muhmat Ghandi
In the name of justice we ain't cleanin their dirty laundry.

Now that we've started with the Occupation
We challenge the seas of disinformation
We challenge the complicit population
The Debt slavery of our generation

Got a trillion in-student loans
Folks they sinking like stones
My peers staring into their smart-phones
Government's going broke building predator drones

Youth of today casted out and alone
Meanwhile politicians they bitch and moan
About lobbyists on the phone
but they tele-market when they at home.

Debt slavery is not what god had in mind for me
College freed my mind because of it I'm in poverty
We have all these ideas like freedom and liberty
But a life of education leads to a life of penury

Let me spell it out; With a little bit of hope you seek knowledge
You look at your grades and apply for college
You end up getting into to a fine little institute
Study hard, intern, and stay astute
Now you're paying back loans, living at home,
Can't get a job so you try to write a poem

The irony of our situation
is that all around this great nation
homes are empty awaiting occupation
so be you mexican, american or haitian

after you squat, all you need
to get yourself a set of keys
is to go to court and begin to plead
your case a few lawyer fees
and the legal defense of
"show me the deed"

Do the Math:
1 Hellfire Missile -- $58,000
1 Year in college -- $58,000

Get the message? Everybody get the message? Y'all get the message?

Don't push us cuz we're close to the edge
We're trying not to lose our home-steads
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.

Don't push us cuz we're close to the edge
We're trying not to lose our home-steads
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.
Got loans by the bundle and it makes us wonder
What it takes from going under.
