The Fault Line
Amy met Brad Brad fell for Amy Got together nine months later had a baby See Brad came from money as did Amy So when they had a baby man wasn't na'an shady Joel was born healthy born into wealthy With two midwives and a nurse named Chelsea Brought home to grow in a spot on Park Ave With a nanny named Maddy and his mom but no Dad Brad was always traveling working for a business With his marketing assistant but you get the picture Amy did nothing but cook and play tennis While Maddy raised Joel while speaking no English Or maybe just a little Joel learned to scribble In a private school for little ones with money in their fiscal From dribbling to scribbling to posing as rebel For attention he would meddle in affairs he wasn't meant to Passed around some dollars Joel went to college Got smashed every day went greek like his father Spring break bastion failing all his classes Shell out dough whatdayaknow Joel's passing DUIs when he drives read the wide captions Saying he could drive faster and buy passion Brad was promoted up to president so He gave a job to his son now executive Joel Who made a couple bucks with angles he touched Money scams labor cuts weren't saving much Out of work prospered met a girl fathered His own neglected children to continue the fodder Got a little older wild turkey murdered purity But hung around a while through insurance and surgery And grew to be bitter in his winter of life Left behind a couple million several kids and a wife Rich man ain't giving to poor Said he works hard for it he ain't giving up dough The poor man says he'll never succeed Because these rich motherfuckers ain't giving to me The fault line falls right in between Says we all got greed got mouths to feed We could have health and be in good health If we all break stride and stop thinking for self Janice knew Eric from hanging on the block Had a girl named Maria that was always at his spot One day Maria bounced Janice made her move Which lead to them bedding after smoking and some booze Aiden was a pre-me 8 months from conception Eric had resented Janice for getting pregnant Aiden lived with Janice even though he'd never see her While Eric smoked trees and started back with Maria Aiden was a project baby without a promise Janice had dudes in and out on a constant Eric didn't care Aiden wasn't on his conscience Life full nonsense living with no progress Until he lived grandma walking him to school Free lunch food hand me downs cartoons Then Aiden grew into a good student Had goals he pursued played sports he'd never lose when He graduated high school college in his view but seen He didn't have funds went to one in the community Worked the fry-o-lator to get him minor paper Went home and did assignments and graduated later Searched around for jobs until he found one in the paper That went with his degree started talking to his savior Said you'll start out at the bottom f*ck it though it paid him Got a job at the firm mail clerk Aiden Lived check to check had difficulty saving Fell in love with a girl and had a couple babies Continued working constant him and his lady To keep the food on the table Aiden never was lazy Diabetic never sickly until it caught in his 60s Social security is purjury insurance is thrifty So the medical costs spread to his wife But had a family who loved him at the end of his life Rich man ain't giving to poor Said he works hard for it he ain't giving up dough The poor man says he'll never succeed Because these rich motherfuckers ain't giving to me The fault line falls right in between Says we all got greed got mouths to feed We could have health and be in good health If we all break stride and stop thinking for self
