E-Town Concrete - A Setup lyrics
Johnny never went to college. He couldn't afford the fee. He got lucky;he had an uncle who worked for NBC. Now Johnny's taking for people who shop from the TV-mostly wealthy housewives who buy expensive jewerly.
"It's a setup, keep you down. They set up you, then knock you"
Johnny got laid-off, his job sent overseas. He made about 50 bucks day, his replacement-$3.
My mother never had much money; my grades were never all that great. So how fuck am I supposed to learn if eduation cost more than I make? And how fuck the am I supposed to earn when good jobs want a college degree? Seven bucks an hour, what kind of future does that leave for me?!
"It's a setup, keep you down. They set up you, then knock you"(2x)
Johnny's is going through some tough times and barely making both ends meet. He can't find a jod on account of the economy. Johnny's feeling desperate. He's got kids to feed. So the day I met Johnny, he robbing me.
