Lyrics
See that man sittin' in front of the border line
He ain't got the time to argue what's yours and what is mine
See that man holdin' his hand out in desperation
He don't see salvation, no god and sure no nation

We all workin' for the means to the end of our situation
We all hopin' for the day that the powers see abdication and run
Said it gonna come, it gonna come

See that man sittin' in front of the jewelry store
He can't walk no more, he just too damn poor
See that man holdin' his eyes from the glarin' sun
He ain't got no-one, his hopes all been undone

We all workin' for the means to the end of our situation
We all hopin' for the day that the powers see abdication and run
Said it gonna come, it gonna come

Nothin' good comes from nothin'
Nothin' comes from nothin' good
Why you spend the whole day bluffin'?
Come on man, do what you should
What you mean, the world ain't easy?
What you mean, the world ain't mine?
Last I checked, there were no price tags
Hangin' on them shady pines
What you say when you say nothin'?
What you mean when you say lies?
Politician, tell me somethin'
What you got behind them eyes, 'cause

We all workin' for the means to the end of our situation
We all hopin' for the day that the powers see abdication and run
Said it gonna come, Lord Said it gonna come
(See that, see that, see that man)
