        Well, they got poor folks down in China, more poor folks in 'Carolina
        Seems like lately, there's poor folks most everywhere
        Homeless children in New Delhi, old folks livin' on Skid Row, L.A.
        Men of war's corporate lackeys actin' like they ain't even there

               And it looks like hell's gonna freeze over before they care
               Can't afford the gasoline to drive to work no longer there
               Neither party up in DC, represents either you or me
               An' it looks like hell's gonna freeze over, before they care

        Underneath America's steeple, sit a lot of mis-guided people
        'Tryin' to believe in someone often misquoted there
        The message is so far from the level, it ain't welcome even by the devil
        Unborn babies will be lucky if they never breathe the polluted air

               And it looks like hell's gonna freeze over before they care
               Veterans lyin' in the gutter, sick folks dyin' with no healthcare
               Neither party up in DC, can see the forest or the trees
               An' it looks like hell's gonna freeze over, before they care

        Rather than fix highways and pollution, Social Security and Medicare
        They pass knee-jerk non-binding resolutions an' build bridges that don't go
              anywhere

               Looks like hell's gonna freeze over before they care
               Before we have fair elections and the world no longer lives in fear
               The great Alaskan frozen tundra's gonna be warmer than Arizona
               An' it looks like hell's gonna freeze over, before they care

               Before they care, long before they care
               And it looks like hell's gonna freeze over, long before they care *


* Dedicated to We The People of the 21st Century, victims of the most corrupt, knee-jerk and totally incompetant congress in the history of the United States, if not the world.
