You Get What You Need

(click here to hear)

I saw the bankers at the reception
Stealing homes and jobs and lands
They are practiced at the art of deception
You can tell by their blood-stained hands

Chorus:
You can't always get what you want
When 1% are living for their greed
You can't always get what you want
But if you occupy, you just might find
You get what you need

So I went down to the occupation
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"
Chorus

We need to foreclose on the banks
And pepper spray the student loans
It's time to teargas the tanks
Evict the politicians from their thrones

Got to stop and frisk the police chiefs
Detain and question Mr. Dow Jones
Deny building permits for the prisons
And flash-bang the bankers and their loans
Chorus

It's time to mass arrest the Warmakers
I suggest we replace them all with Quakers
Kudos and respect to the risk takers
Who occupy everywhere

We've been a bit quiescent since Seattle
But we have woken up since Tahrir
And now we've got a new generation
That's broken through apathy and fear

We need to foreclose on the banks
And pepper spray the student loans
It's time to teargas the tanks
Evict the politicians from their thrones
Chorus
