Track Name: Ain't a Lot of Love
AIN’T A LOT OF LOVE

There ain’t a lot of love, unconditional love for the patiently impatient type
There ain’t a lot of love, ain’t enough supply
There ain’t a lot of love, a lot of quality love for the quiet unrequited kind
There ain’t a lot of love, price is awful high

Haven’t you heard there ain’t a lot of love?
And there ain’t enough supply?
And there ain’t a lot of love to keep the price from being high?
Haven’t you heard there ain’t a lot of love?
And there ain’t enough supply?
And there ain’t a lot of love to keep the price from being high?

There ain’t a lot of love, a lot of meaningful love for the cautious optimistic mind
There ain’t a lot of love, ain’t enough supply
There ain’t a lot of love, everlasting love for the lonely broken-heart-inclined
There ain’t a lot of love, price is stupid high

Haven’t you heard there ain’t a lot of love?
And there ain’t enough supply?
And there ain’t a lot of love to keep the price from being high?
Haven’t you heard there ain’t a lot of love?
And there ain’t enough supply?
And there ain’t a lot of love to keep the price from being high?

There’s been some mistake, it should be easy to make or fake a way to be polite
Or to give it away to everyone everyday to keep the people satisfied

No matter if you’ve been down or up on luck
Or whether you have or haven’t been getting enough
There wasn’t a ton before demand went up
Ain’t a lot of love
Track Name: Free* World
FREE* WORLD

Tell me about a free* world where the rich men in control
Need our spending money to live down at the capital
Tell me about a free* world where the folks near poverty
Are united by sponsoring first-world families

Tell me about a free* world and pledge allegiance on your knees
Maybe freedom means something different to you and me
Tell me about a free* world and crack the whip of liberty
Maybe freedom means something different to you and me

Tell me about a free* world where protections for the poor
Send the privileged kids to school and ours to the war
Tell me about a free* world where insurance isn’t guaranteed
So, if you’re going to get sick, you better hit the lottery

Tell me about the good old days again
When we got to know the straight, white boogeymen
Who cared more about your bedroom or the color of your skin
Than they did about your grandma’s medicine
But you gambled with them, man.

Well, what did you win?
What did you win getting conned again?
What did you win getting conned again by them Washington men?
What did you win?
What did you win getting conned again?
What did you win getting conned again by them Washington men?

Tell me about a free* world and pledge allegiance on your knees
Maybe freedom means something different to you and me
Tell me about a free* world and crack the whip of liberty
Maybe freedom means something different to you and me
Track Name: Your Neighbor's Wallet
YOUR NEIGHBOR’S WALLET

The next-door guy’s prioritized affairs
Budgeting life with someone upstairs
But his boss is in between
His love & opportunity
A sacrifice to show his family he cares

I bet his shoes don’t fit your feet
I bet he’s got discount worries
And he works twice as much to earn enough to support his family
He shouldn’t have shame if you don’t
He shouldn’t have anything you own
There’s only iou’s and prejudice in your neighbor’s wallet

The daily grind and the bottomless to do
Juggling time & her duty to
The success of the company
And the survival of her family
Underemployed & educated too

Just pay your dues & everything will turn out fine
Just a few more years & six feet til the finish line

I bet their shoes don’t fit your feet
I bet they’ve got discount worries
And they work twice as much to earn enough to support their families
They shouldn’t have shame if you don’t
They shouldn’t have anything you own
There’s only iou’s and prejudice in your neighbor’s wallet
