Geithner’s in the basement,
Mixing up the medicine,
I’m on the pavement,
Thinking about the government.
Bankers in trench coats,
Every one’s a Madoff,
Say they got toxic debts,
Wanna get ’em paid off . . .
The banking system is rubble. The economy’s imploding. How did it come to this? Why didn’t our “representatives” in Washington D.C. see this crisis coming? Because they were too busy kissing Wall Street’s ass and K Street’s ass and Bush’s ass and the ass of every CEO in sight, that’s why they didn’t see this coming.
We saw it coming. We’re progressives. We don’t need a fucking weatherman to know which way the wind blows.
We told America a hard rain’s gonna fall. But America wouldn’t listen.
We saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
We saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it,
We saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin,
We saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin,
We saw a white ladder all covered with water,
We saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken,
We saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children.
