Ernest Hemingway once wrote: "Revolution is a catharsis, a fervour which can only be sustained by tyranny".


You're raking in the money
And you're taking us for fools
You ain't even got a stake in
Yet you're making all the rules
Go tell your trophy wife now
With her $1000 LA curls
She'll never find a rich man
When it's a Poor Man's World

They'll all be out to get you
When your system finally fails
They'll be queuing at your coffin
Just to hammer in the nails
Go tell your pretty little children
Your spoilt little boys and girls
You wouldn't want to be a rich man
Not in a Poor Man's World

See the poor are getting poorer
Being driven from their homes
While the rich are getting richer
Looking after their own
Go tell your little inner circle
When the flag's, when the flag's unfurled
You wouldn't want to be a rich man
Not in a Poor Man's World
