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

Free* World 02:27
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

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
