E-Town Concrete - A Setup lyrics

A Setup

Johnny never went to college.

He couldn't afford the fee.

He got lucky; he had an uncle who worked for NBC.

Now Johnny's taking for people,

who shop from the TV-mostly wealthy housewives who buy expensive jewerly.

"It's a setup, keep you down.

They set up you, then knock you"

Johnny got laid-off, his job sent overseas.

He made about 50 bucks day, his replacement-$3.

My mother never had much money; my grades were never all that great.

So how fuck am I supposed to learn if eduation cost more than I make?

And how fuck the am I supposed to earn when,

good jobs want a college degree?

Seven bucks an hour, what kind of future does that leave for me?!

"It's a setup, keep you down.

They set up you, then knock you"(2x)

Johnny's is going through some tough times,

and barely making both ends meet.

He can't find a jod on account of the economy.

Johnny's feeling desperate.

He's got kids to feed.

So the day I met Johnny, he robbing me.
