I stripped my faith on the city pavements
To keep a smile
I got my legs from the US Government
To keep me alive

We are the ones that keep you down
We are the ones that won the grounds
While our arms surround

I filled my head with another replacement
To keep me high
I shot my soul when you wanted to take this
Your worst day's mine

We are the ones that keep you high
