Torches and Pitchforks

The oligarchs and the bastards on Wall Street                                                                    

Are taking humanity straight toward its defeat

If we are to survive we cannot let them win

So let’s get off our asses, it’s time for us to begin

The hubris and the greed of all these oligarchs is boundless

I fear that legal actions on them will be found as groundless

I don’t think it makes no sense to get these guys in front of courts

I think a much better plan is for us to get torches and pitchforks


Torches and pitchforks                 That’s what we need                                                    

Torches and pitchforks                  For their insatiable greed

Torches and pitchforks                  To run them out of town

To shine the light upon them      And bring the buggers down

Those of us who see it, must go and we must teach it                                                    

The people need our wisdom and it’s us who must go preach it

We gotta show the people that the world is not just black and white

It’s really much more complex than a struggle between left and right

Sewing discord to distract the masses from the real crime

I hope there is a special place in hell for this inhuman slime

Instead of fighting them they’ve got us fighting with each other

So they’ll have their luxury while all of us will suffer


They’re lurking in the shadows and they’ve all the power in the world                   

If you ever get close to one the stench will make you want to hurl

They’re fiendish and they’re evil and each one of them have sold their souls

And if we do not stop them they’ll succeed in reaching all their goals

They’re not even human really much more kin to vampires

Distracting us from seeing them by sparking all these fires

They’re sucking all the good out of the world to feed their evil

And really could not give a flying crap about the fate of people 


The unseen hand behind it all they work with great efficiency                                   

Delighted to be in the shadows they relish anonymity

Left alone there’s not a chance they’ll ever be a bit contrite

So we do what they most fear and thrust them in the spotlight

They instigate the squabbling and the hatred between left and right

To keep us busy with each other and to keep them out of sight

I don’t think it makes no sense to get these guys in front of courts

Me thinks a much better plan is to go and get torches and pitchforks
