lyrics

Throwing 40s in Harvard windows
Black hoods over our heads
Never thought that things would be laid out just like they said
Forget our aspirations
Without a leg up

Only room for our types on the edges
Fill the comfort lives with suits and ties
Only room for us in box apartments
Don’t take people placement to heart

Follow routes that they suggested
For mediocre happiness
Surely there is more to life than remaining like this
Forget your US dreams
No way we’re good enough

Provide the same hopeful illusion
This land was made for you and me
Buy into paths with no conclusions
trust that trickle-down succeeds

Only room for our types on the edges
Fill the comfort lives with suits and ties
Only room for us in box apartments
Don’t take people placement to heart
