Paroles officielles de la chanson "Disparity By Design"

All the way at the bottom
Of these barrels we cried out
So ashamed of our tears that
We blame only ourselves
And that's when they win
They keep us convinced
To lift up our chins
These playing fields are level
We all have a chance
With that they dismiss
The fast lanes they rode
In which access depends
On who you know
Or where you came from
Whose daughter are you?
Whose fortunate son?
We're told to stick out our thumbs
They feast from the linens while we settle for crumbs
Is this an over-reaching arm ?or is this compassion?
Is this a handout undeserved? or a just reparation?
“like a single domino that falls while the rest stay vertical
We’re fed these empty fairy tails will you believe them?”
All the way from the towers
High above glass ceilinged tombs
Tell themselves that they've earned this
By working hard and playing by the rules
But this is only part true
A dangerous trick played on me and you
And so, like a practical joke
We pulled on these bootstraps so hard that they broke
Is this an over-reaching arm ?or is this compassion?
Is this a handout undeserved? or a just reparation?
If there's a God, you better pray
That this sleeping giant never wakes
If we just took a step back
A bigger picture we might view
Perhaps the man in the gutter
Is not so different from you
Come in out of the cold
Forget all that you know
Because there's always been room
By the fire for you
Come in out of the cold
Will you believe them?
Is this an over-reaching arm ?or is this compassion?
Is this a handout undeserved? or a just reparation?
Like a single domino
That falls while the rest stay vertical
We’re fed these empty fairy tales
And I’m through believing.
