dollar $ign bullet$

Originally taken from the album Shaming Of The True, 2001CE

in the raining rush of a town centre precinct
all the shops glow yellow & warm
a woman takes cover & the cover takes her money
& nobody has done any harm
but she's signed herself into a payment plan
she'll be a debtor until she is dead
& it's a sterling gun with dollar sign bullets
& it's pointed at her head

just yards away a young man sleeps
he's got nowhere else to go
he needs a job for a house & a house for a job
the officials tell him so
you see, the people in power don't care for him
so he won't get sheltered or fed
& it's a sterling gun with dollar sign bullets
& it's pointed at his head

they've got a sterling gun with dollar sign bullets
that they're holding to our heads
