Mad At The System


Ev'rybody makes mistakes

We all go down the wrong side of the


But is it our fault

That we don't fit into this world

Of which you all made for ev'rybody?

How 'bout giving the disabled a

__chance to live our

____creative lives, like the way

______ev'ry one else lives?

Give us Section 8

Or give us death

But please

Don't treat us like shit

And cast us out of the list

To be homeless

And mess up our lives for good

We demand that the system that

You have made for us

Be able to work for all of us

Who are in the system

If you think we can live off

Of $876 a month
