Repayment

Refrain The devil wants a payment and the angels need a check;; And the world keeps saying their ain’t no cash to get So you reach for the savings that your people wont release Then you look to the heavens and the floor beneath your feat Screaming daddy mamma wheres my money gone Then the thunder and the lighting and the water begins to come Cause the devil wants a payment and the angels need a check And the world keeps saying their ain’t no cash to get Yet the people in the boardrooms are staying filthy rich They all have servants paid to scratch their itch the workman on the corner coughing up a lung Their eking out a living b/c repayment has begun The devil wants a payment and the angels need a check And the world keep saying their ain’t no cash to get Even our children are on the corners peddling out their wares Keeping eyes to the ground avoiding others stares Remembering the hero's from their parents book of gifts Growing up the hard way, when they realize they don’t exist Refrain Our saviors at the white house just keep babbling on Claiming that their there for us, when really they are gone Out proving some new theory that they really do not know Claiming its existence, if we give it time to grow Refrain Refrain
