I've been hearing about government, taxes, retirement Healthcare, interest rates, the state of the market Tried each and every way I can think of how to spin it So I'm just going to pretend that money wasn't mine to begin with I'm not going to get upset, make a fuss, or protest It's already rather remarkable that I'm even doing this I could write a letter but I probably wouldn't finish So I'm just going to pretend that money wasn't mine to begin with With automatic direct deposit we don't even see it A fairly good reason it's futile to fight it I fundamentally feel there is no way to win this So I'm just going to pretend that money wasn't mine to begin with Now I've got more pressing things on my list Like walking the dogs or washing the dishes Or play a typical white-collar middle-class song sung in English So I'm just going to pretend that money wasn't mine to begin with

What about the last Shall be first Tell me the lost Shall be found One day the least shall be lifted Set up on high ground I jumped out of bed I must have slept late Repairs to the tracks And my train was delayed I need a break But I'll never quit trying I'm out here in the rain At the end of the line So what about the last Shall be first Tell me the lost Shall be found One day the least shall be lifted Set up on high ground An accident ahead Rerouted my way Driving all alone In an unfamiliar state I need a break But I'll never quit trying I'm out here on the road Till I recognize a sign But what about the last Shall be first Tell me the lost Shall be found One day the least shall be lifted Set up on high ground The hurricane arrived... The waters did rise And the waters remained Watching everything sink And all wash away I need a break But I'll never quit trying I'm stuck here on the roof Just praying to keep dry And oh what about the last Shall be first Tell me the lost Shall be found One day the least shall be lifted Set up on high ground

Hey, hey I'm singing praises and if you're nearby Don't hesitate to join the choir If you're not in a praising place Then stay right there and bathe in grace And wait, wait We're singing praises and if you're nearby Don't hesitate to join our choir If you're not in a waiting place Then sing and dance at your own pace And pray, pray We're singing praises and if you're nearby Don't hesitate to join our choir If you're not in a praying place Then shout and cry and interface And say, say I'm singing praises and if you're nearby Don't hesitate to join the choir

From my corner office high above I see police are blocking off the streets And while they move like worker bees I train my seat towards computer screens Should I march? Should I march? Or is it better that I'm tethered In support of mine own interests and I give when I can? From the steaming pavement far below A crowd emerges peacefully insured With banners, flags, and drums and horns While I return to where my words are heard Should I march? Should I march? Or is it better that I'm tethered In support of mine own interests and I give when I can? All throughout my hardly weary day The ants I see are marching three by three And while their numbers rise and fall I intercede in comfort as I please But should I march? Should I march? Or is it better that I'm tethered In support of mine own interests and I give when I can?

Such little protection From a razor so mean We dodge and defend But the dagger cuts clean Our skin is but thin And gives way to the blade Piercing ever deep Till the light starts to fade The darkness is lifted Still the wound makes me reel And two become one As the hurt starts to heal The skin closes in It gets stronger each hour Underneath the scab Is a beautiful scar
