Great Expectations

This song is by Tank and appears on the album War Machine (2010).

Lords in their chambers they're handing out favours
They only answer to God
Watching the bankers the second rate chancers
Driving us into the ground.

There's a sign on his door says "Don't come in"
What's he doing in there with his nistress?
There's a sign on the door
Experience for sale
There's a sign on the door. I'm gonna get ya.

We had Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down.

Priests and their morals sing Christmas carols
While drinking the communion wine
Mix up the story we know of Heaven and glory
See the blind leading blind.

There's a cross on the wall and a purple gown
It's a story we know only too well
There's a cross on the wall, and a candle bright
There's a cross on the wall but it just ain't right.

We had Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down.

Here comes the young man fathering children
He'll never see as they grow
Watching the young girl dancing for money
Swinging her legs round a pole.

Forgotten child if you head goes wild
Forgotten child of despair
Forgotten child gotta rise above
If you gotta get crazy
Get high on love.

We had Great Expectations
But you all let us down
We had Great Expectations
You just let us down down down.
