lyrics

I’ma crack the safe
and vacate the place.
No patience for paychecks,
the paper chase,
gloves and face mask
so I don’t leave no traces
I don’t need the loot,
but I just want it in cases
so I could make a run
like a day at the races
with leg braces
Forest goin’ for it, gon’ make it.
Take it to the bank and break rank
break down, break out,
break off of a piece, say ‘‘Peace’’
and get back to being a thief,
beat the cops on the beat,
sneaking in the service
entrance undetected
security cameras exposed
when I wrecked ‘em
damn near killed him,
grab the loot,
bounce outta the building
not hurtin’ no women,
no children, just chillin’
making a killing
and billing the man
for killing the Cheyenne,
pillaging Afghanistan
Robin Hood of the hood
for the good of the land!

99.9% only got a little bit
And bad jobs they can’t quit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit

99.9% only got a little bit
And have no choice but to submit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit

It’s a new phase of life for me,
a transition
got an itchy trigger finger,
I’m a man on a mission from God
like the brothers of blues
Does anybody here
got any good news ?
I’m kind of tired
of my present situation
all the tests of will
and stress I’m still facing
I’ve tried to figure it out,
and have but still got doubts
about where to go from here, what it’s all about.

99.9% only got a little bit
And bad jobs they can’t quit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit
99.9% only got a little bit
And have no choice but to submit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit

The last tidbits of past acid hits
flash back like a blitz
help me regain my wits
the responsibility belongs
to he who commits
til’ the shoe fits.
If it doesn’t it’s useless,
who gives two shits?

Gotta get used to it,
cause I blew it,
won’t blow it again,
blowing in the wind.
Can’t rewind the thing
once it begins
thinking too much
is a thing of the past
I’m never gon’ last
if I can’t be steadfast
forget the regrets,
so many questions unasked.
My capacity for tenacity... surpassed.
It’s all about changing,
put things in order,
they need rearranging
it’s strange indeed
but we’re each evolving,
maturity only when we
nourish the seed,
need courage to bleed,
when we fight for what’s right
and impede the greed
of those who mislead
there are too many
we need to feed
to not succeed
so we heed the creed!

99.9% only got a little bit
And bad jobs they can’t quit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit
99.9% only got a little bit
And have no choice but to submit
99.9% of the people ain’t rich,
the rest just don’t give a shit
