Closed Down

inspired by the bailouts, budget crisis, and general government debauchery.


* all these places are closed *

when I passed, my eyes fixed on these meloncholy bricks.
used to identify as the guy up in the mix.
but with a quick a number fix…
the suits shut us down with some mouse clicks.

* all these places.... all these places *

are around, I opened the gate to the heart of the town.
and what I found was a faded photograph of a beaten path
and a broken memory of a lost laugh

and cries from the small fries cuz’ the black ties need a fall guy
when they pull a disappearing act with the supply
and the economy SLOWS DOWN

when the markets fail, when the banks on bail,
everything's for sale, and the scale…
of hungry people in the street GROWS


sign here, sign there, put your blank check in the air.
the peasants don't care,
cuz’ the billionaires’ got a broke man to champion laissez faire.

* all these places are closed *
