Axe Gabba Murda Mob - Things Are Bad lyrics


ad
I don't have to tell you things are bad
Everybody knows things are bad
Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job
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
The air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat
We sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us
That today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-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

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 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 Russians 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
God damn it
My life has value

I want you to get mad

It's like everything everywhere is going crazy [4x]
Going crazy, going crazy
Everywhere is going crazy
Going, going crazy

I want you to get mad

I want you to get violent

I want you to get mad

Violent

We know things are bad, worse than bad
They're crazy

I want you to get mad

Fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes [2x]

I want you to get violent

Just leave us alone

Fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes [3x]
As if that's the way it's supposed to be

We know things are bad, worse than bad
They're crazy

Everywhere is going crazy
Going, going crazy
Everywhere is going crazy [2x]
We know things are bad, worse than bad

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 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 Russians 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
God damn it
My life has value
