COUNTRY ANTHEM


Wit d rain of tears
Came d harvest of pain 
In d season of poverty

Reign of theft
Rainin xtravagance
Reign of arrogance
Rainin squander

They do not make it
yet they take it
We do not take it 
Yet we make it


Mother almost murdered
Saviors turnin saggy
Victims whistlin hardship
Hope getin smothered


Rain of tears
Harvest of pain
Season of Poverty
