lyrics

Dust on the road of this town
It didn’t used to be this way
Some years ago from today
We used to have a different town, ya know
The butcher, the baker, the shoe maker
They all had their place in this town
Somewhere along our way
We lost what we once had
We lost our sense of community
We lost our sense of family
We lost our sense of reality
All in the name of greed and money

If we are all taught to be an individual
And look out for numero uno
If we’re only to look out for ourselves
It’s no wonder we’ve lost, we’ve lost our towns

Main Street for Wall Street x4

Remember when we had shop owners
Now we’ve got CEO’s
Remember when downtown was more than just a road To get you to the Wal-Mart parking lot
Why does the owner of the factory
Now make forty times more than his employee
Well, that doesn’t seem all that fair
But I guess that’s what-cha get
when you lose your care
Do you remember when we had local farmers
Now we’ve got great big ole’ food corporations
Do you even know where your food – it comes from
Or do you put your faith in the FDA?

We’ve got bankers with more than some countries
And if you’re sick and poor well drugs
They’re out of your reach
Republican democrat it doesn’t matter to me
If everyone’s wrong then how can anyone be right

Main Street for Wall Street x4
