LUMPENPROLETARIAT   Microeconomic Analysis 101.  The capitalist mode of production imposes the predatory social relations of capital.  And when you’re gonna get some food, your brother got to be your enemy…

When Am I Going To Make A Living” (1984) by Sade

When am I gonna make a living?
It’s gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fussin’ and thievin’
While the sharks are wheelin’ and dealin’

Gotta look up and tell yourself, there’s no end to what you can do
They’ll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
This is time to start believing in yourself
Put the blame on no one else

When am I gonna make a living?
It’s gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fussin’ and stealin’
Too many lies, no one is achievin’

Haven’t I told you before
We’re hungry for a life we can’t afford?
There’s no end to what you can do
If you give yourself a chance to prove

We’re hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
We’re hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in

Oh, there’s no end to what you can do
They’ll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
Oh, start believing in yourself
Put the blame on no one else

Not gonna give in
Hungry but we won’t give in

When am I gonna make a living?
It’s gonna take a while before I give in; yes, it is
I’m sick and tired of scratching a living
I am hungry but I’m not gonna give in, no

Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we’re gonna win

Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we’re gonna win
