  1. Common Man

From the recording Toiling in Obscurity

Lyrics

Homespun humor hides the silver spoon
He’ll spend a million dollars so you think that he’s
Just like me and you
 
Tell us a lie we’ll go along
Everything’s fine (if you) just don’t think beyond
 
For and against right or wrong
Black and white all the grays are gone
 
Chorus:
 
Hey mister spin us the plan
Dumb it down for the common man
Just use a metaphor
Help us understand
Just tell them that you’re on their side
Specially if you’re straight Christian wealthy and white
What you gonna tell them when they
Look you in the eye
 
Man of the people
Compassion is his middle name
He takes home seven figures but he can’t afford to
Pay a living wage
 
Raking it in throw it around
But you hide that stuff when the tax man comes around
 
Line ‘em up mow em down
Send the kids from the poor side of town
 
Hey mister spin us the plan
Dumb it down for the common man
Just use a metaphor
So we can understand
You keep saying God is on your side
Then who’s looking out for all those innocent lives
What you gonna tell Him when He
Looks you in the eye
 
Chorus
