ninety nine lyrics – i am abomination

held down by the weight of absent coin
confined by the absence of wealth
the muted feud each other to stay afloat
(stay afloat)
conflicted with convictions
to make the most

we’re left to wonder
if opportunity will outlast empathy
we’re left to wonder
if our economy will outlast prophecy

[chorus:]
i’ve got a message for you
and it’s justified by the nine to five
we’ve got the message for you
and it’s justified by the ninety-nine
so tip the scale back our way
so we may know what it is to be heard
we’ve got the message for you
you can not deny the ninety-nine

unlike the higher
we’d lift the veil from the acquired
forge the cowards from their desks
now heed this warning
before the stricken revolt

[solo]

[chorus:]
i’ve got a message for you
and it’s justified by the nine to five
we’ve got the message for you
and it’s justified by the ninety-nine
so tip the scale back our way
so we may know what it is to be heard
we’ve got the message for you
you can not deny the ninety-nine

when man’s worth is reflective of his work
the state will be revived
while the gluttons burn alive

those who pay it forward
are the ones who truly keep the world afloat

[chorus:]
i’ve got a message for you
and it’s justified by the nine to five
we’ve got the message for you
and it’s justified by the ninety-nine
so tip the scale back our way
so we may know what it is to be heard
we’ve got the message for you
you can not deny the ninety-nine
