PLEASE SIR

lyrics

how did it come to this
those with used to help those without
wealth used to come and go in waves with the seasons
there's a gap between the richer and the poorer
and a trade worth knowing was a trade worth sharing
one fell as the other grew
the other grew
the other grows
please sir, will you let me grow
please sir

you take from the poor and give to the rich
like a benifit plan for the unneedy
like a reverse robin hood
i'm working towards being king someday
but i started at the bottom and i keep sinking lower
and the harder i try, you put your hand out for more
please sir, can i have some more
please sir, can i have some more
please sir

these indellible scars on my back i can't see but i feel
every time i lay down
the summer breeze eases my pain
you can't take that away
you can't take that away
you can't take that away
...
please sir
