Start Again

Got 30 million you’re blessed
Make 30 grand that’s a sin to be confessed
So far behind in this game
Kicked me senseless when I’m down then you score the world again and again

When you’re way out in front
You don’t show boat, you don’t rub it in our faces
You don’t run up the score
You don’t run up the score
That’s not how we play the game
We know what’s right
It’s not the way we raise our children
We don’t run up the score
Just to run up the score

CH – So if you run up the score
We’re going to take it from you take it from you
If you run up the score? - That’s a different game
Run up the score?
We’ll be waiting for you waiting for you
That’s how I was raised

Slick back Wall Street boy
got big bank but he’s got to break my union
Just to run up the score
Just to run up the score
Another slip shoe self-made man
He bought those shoes by stealing all our pensions
Just to run up the score
He had to run up the score

CH

Bridge
Standing by the thousands there - Breadth freezing in the air
No leaders no preachers came - Purple mountains seas - the same
And then the union came - Which side are you on again?
Through the ring of fire where - The freedom burns and you dare
Do you dare – do you dare do you dare

Got 30 million you’re smart -
Make 30 grand and watch your family fall apart
What ever happened to a living wage? –
I quit – You win – all you left me is my rage

Now we’re going to settle the score
Come on we’re waiting for you waiting for you
Settle the score - Its a different game
Settle the score
Going to take it from you take it from you
That’s how I was raised
Its time to start again
