Track Name: Buy Low, Sell High
Buy low and sell high, but don’t let go until the day you die
You never had money, no you never had none at all
And still you’re living like you’re ten feet tall

And ain’t that living? Yeah, that’s the stuff.
And ain’t that progress? Yeah, it’s so damn good... it’s almost good enough

When the wind blow, keep a peeled eye and fix your gaze towards the sky
‘Cause they got their money, they got their helicopter love
They got little boxes saying “all of the above”

And ain’t that living? Yeah, that’s the stuff.
And ain’t that progress? Yeah, it’s so damn good... it’s almost good enough

Keep your chin low and your gloves high and learn to duck when the punches fly
‘Cause we never had money, no we never had none at all
And still we sit here just watching it all fall

And ain’t that living? Yeah, that’s the stuff.
And ain’t that progress? Yeah, it’s so damn good... it’s almost good enough
Track Name: Isn't It Possible
If they can lie to their people and if they can lie through their teeth
If they can lie to each other and if they can lie to their families
If they can lie about a revolution coming to its knees

Isn’t it possible... isn’t it possible... isn’t it possible that they can lie about the enemy?

If they can lie to our faces and if they can lie behind our backs
If they can lie and leave no traces and if they can lie on their income tax
If they can lie about a revolution falling on its back

Isn’t it possible... isn’t it possible... isn’t it possible that they’re the foot that trips you flat?

If they can lie about the air you’re breathing and if they can lie about what you drink
If they can lie about what you’re reading and if they can lie about what you think
If they can lie about a revolution... well then, don’t you think...

That it’s just possible... isn’t it possible... isn’t it possible that the enemy is You & Me?
Track Name: Brother, Can You Spare A Dime? (feat. Don Francks & Mike Ross)
They used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob
When there was earth to plow or guns to bear, I was always there, right on the job
They used to tell me I was building a dream with peace and glory aheadW
Why should I be standing in line waiting for a piece of bread?

Once I built a railroad, made it run, made it race against time
Once I built a railroad, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once I built a tower to the sun, brick and rivet and lime
Once I built a tower, now it’s done
Brother, can you spare a dime

Once in khaki suits, gee we looked swell
Full of that Yankee Doodle Dee Dum
Half a million boots when slogging through Hell
And I was the kid with the drum

Say, don’t you remember... they called me “Al”, it was “Al” all the time
Say, don’t your remember... I’m your pal
Brother, can you spare a dime

Why don’t your remember? I’m your pal.
Brother, can you spare a dime
