(original lyrics by Vince Ewing) - These lyrics below do not include the samples used in the song, but are the words Vince sings: All the wasted youth and all the unwise men couldn't put our city back together again And the parents don't care and the teachers don't care turns these busy streets into the middle of nowhere and the world that you left behind is a burning ball of shit and so your kids are sitting on their hands wondering what to do with it It's so hard to find a silver lining To hold your head high when there ain't nobody smiling and I can't walk down these streets anymore and I've worn out my welcome but I don't know what for Are the times coming to an end or am I just insane? Why does the world seem crazier every day? Why does the world seem crazier every day? We lost ourselves in greed and there ain't no road back home misery has her company yet the artist sleeps alone and the fields have flooded over and paradise is burnin' and we can't ourselves with all the things that we aren't learning And are the times coming to and end or am I just insane? Why does the world seem crazier every day? Why does the world seem crazier every day? We've built our machines and then they ate our dinner We've turned clowns into kings the biggest crown a winner Now the kids can't hardly read or even write a letter I guess the good life on its own can't teach us to be better And are the times coming to an end or am I just insane? Why does the world seem crazier every day? Why does the world seem crazier every day? Why does the world seem crazier every day?

about

This program / show / mix was inspired by the 'Occupy Wall Street' protests in lower Manhattan in the Fall of 2011. It originally was webcast on 10/09/2011, but some modifications have been made since the original webcast.

This is a vibrant, driven mix which is a sister-program to 'Uprisings' which we made in the Spring of 2011. 3 hour mix, tracked. Includes a 1 hour radio edit version of the mix as well which was heard on "Bob"'s Slacktime Funhouse on WREK Atlanta.

If you wish to donate to our ministry you can go to nationalcynical.com/donate or become a patreon at patreon.com/nationalcynical or consider entering in a dollar amount for this program which goes back into the project.

All derived material in this program is used fairly, accredited, and transformed (remixed / fragmented / re-contextualized / re-worked) for the purpose of education, cultural reference, and to artistically capture the cultural conversation about the subject matter during the time of this program's creation.

This researched program is the result of an artistic and creative process, which can be documented, and is meant to be heard, and taken in its entirety. Payment is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content in order to get this package but is considered a voluntary donation toward supporting the creative work and expense behind the program.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.
