TRICKLE DOWN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


             I.  let's create a lower caste.
                 let's inflate the criminal class,
                 'cause people only want more
                 when they start with less.
                 robbing nurses of their purses
                 'til the curse
                 pervades this town...
                 then you will learn
                 all about
                 trickle down.

            II.  a voice in the dark resounds sharply,
                 shakes you in its teeth like shark feed.
                 burning sticky wet bleed
                 on your gown
                 will show you a thing,
                 a thing about
                 trickle down,
                 will show you a thing,
                 a thing about
                 trickle down.

           III.  you say this is a fickle town:
                 "fear stalks the streets of Trickledown."
                 and when you lie there
                 veiled in sweat,
                 you turn and reach for
                 your tourniquet.
                 you'll know dollars aren't
                 the only things
                 that trickle down.
                 and you will know
                 the truth about
                 trickle down.
