Behind the Beat, Below the note

Word on the street, from between the cracks
is the answer to a question, no one asks
under the rug it gets swept,
a little secret that must be kept
in a behind the beat, below the note kind of way

See 'em in the mainstream goin' down
no one cares if they swim or drown
so ride a bike and pack your lunch
the American dream is in a crunch
it's behind the beat, below the note they say

The promised land was promised to a chosen few
sounds good if the few includes me and you

Work hard play hard some folks say
I just want to take it easy all day
behind the beat, below the note I stay

They used to put their money in the bank
these days it goes right in the tank
Yu can't live large on the head of a pin
you can roll the dice but you're never gonna win
when you're behind the beat, below the note it won't pay
Close this window.
