The sniper are passed out 
In the bushes again
I'm glad I got my suit dry-cleaned
 Before the riots started
 Cause there's only rehashed faces
On the bread line tonight 
Soon you'll be a figment 
Of some infamous life

 Billionaires smile like weapons  Passing out platinum pensions
They're out of control 
No one know how low they'll go

(Hold on)
Take a ride on a broken train

 These bra burning deportees
At the service station
They know that beige 
Is the color of resignation 

We're out of control 
No one knows how low we'll go

(Hold on)
Take a ride on a broken train

Shinin' like crystal tiaras
 Ghettos and grey Rivieras 
This is the real me ladies 
You won't find no shelter here

Tell me, what's your zip code baby
Did you ever let a cowboy sit on your lap
