Throttler - Human Value lyrics

I don't have to tell you things are bad, everybody knows things are bad
The dollar buys a nickel's worth
Banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter
Punks are running wild in the street
And there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do
And there's no end to it

We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat
And we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us
That today we had fifteen homicides andsixty-three violent crimes
As if that's the way it's supposed to be.
We know things are bad, worse than bad, they're crazy

Human value [6x]
My life has value

It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore
We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller
And all we say is please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms
Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials
And I won't say anything, just leave us alone

Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone, I want you to get mad!
I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot
I don't want you to write to your congressman
Because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write
I don't know what to do about the depression
And the inflation, and the crime in the street
All I know is that first you've got to get mad
You've got to say I'm a human being, goddammit!
My life has value!

Human value [?x]
My life has value
