Lyrics / the 1%
« Last post by nic-b on January 05, 2012, 04:23:45 AM »
We are the other one per-set
Chilling on my yacht
Sipping Moet

We are the other one percent
Yeah we took your money
But we got your consent

's funny that you deregulate us
And now you hate us for the money we made us
Now you ninety nine per cent down on your luck
Look in my eyes man think that I give a fuck?
We saw you coming son you'd better accept it
We took your money and we fucking well kept it
So don't hate the player y'hear, Hate the game you
99 percent bitches man you all sound the same

We are the one percent- one
We hold all the chips
you hold all the none

We are that other one percent
And we all know where the money went yeah.

Lyrics / Some partial lyrical ideas
« Last post by Ollie Rankin on January 03, 2012, 10:02:55 PM »
Here is a random collection of lyrics that I have in my scratchpad for the song that didn't make it into a verse or chorus yet. They may inspire one of you to develop them into a stanza:

Greece birthplace of democracy
Now it's the worst case of bankruptcy
Followed close behind by Italy
Democratic governments overthrown by debt

It's not just the oppressed that deserve to be free, so do we
But then we switched on the TV and here is what we saw
Mace in the face and a wrongful arrest
A disgraceful display of Damascus justice

We, the bourgeoisie, supposedly in a democracy
Are only as free as any Syrian or North Korean
We're victims of the biggest ever Ponzi scheme
All of your stocks and all your property
Are worth nothing unless some sucker comes along who still believes
That another sucker will one day buy them for even more money

We gotta stand up and stop it
Politicians in the pockets
Of the same Corporations
That are bankrupting nations
The EU is collapsing
One country at a time
We're running out of patience
And we're running out of time

There's no reason this has to be a rap song or that every incarnation of this song has to be a rap song. Or even if it is a rap song, there's no reason to not have verses that are sung.

Thanks Jay, some good suggestions in there. Have you ever tried recording yourself rapping? I can't quite read how you intend for some of these lines to flow and I'd been keen to hear what it is you're hearing in your head when you read/write them.

The one thing I keep find myself going back and re-writing lines for is trying to ensure the song's voice belongs to the 99%, rather than being an outside observer. We've all, to a greater or lesser extent, been that sucker that believed if he worked hard enough for long enough he'd somehow make it.

I see your point, yah.

I don't rap (can barely enunciate on a good day) but I can tap out a rhythm.

Yeah, I can post them no prob.  Lemme retrack them so they're a bit tighter.

Cool. I like the way this feels much less aggressive than nic's or my version. Might be worth doing a more laid-back rendition of the rap to fit this kind of groove.

Do you wanna provide the recordings? You should be able to upload audio files as attachments to the forum post.
