We live in a world were you’re judged by a c.v, 

And no one asks questions because we’re dumbed down by reality T.V,

Our lifes purpose to purchase items we are told to like,

All this to keep the elite few at their heights,

Living off a system that barely pays to buy food,

Then bring children into the world to do as we do,

We exist only as a statistic, 

But being heard in a democracy just isn’t realistic,

We are good for numbers when it comes to fighting wars,

Fighting against others like ourselves with no real cause,

Our class doesn’t have the ability to open doors,

As far as progressing we have too many flaws,

We are given religions to keep us acting right,

So that we wait patiently for a better and meaningful afterlife,

We speak the same language but the elite can not understand us,

Because our particular accents immediately brand us.
