Like the song says —
“Why do they have the gold
Why do they have the power
Why why why Do they have the friends at the top
Why do they have the jobs at the top
We’ve got nothing Always had nothing
Nothing but holes and millions of them
Living in holes dying in holes
Holes in our bellies and holes in our clothes
Marat we’re poor And the poor stay poor
Marat don’t make us wait anymore
We want our rights and we don’t care how
We want our revolution
