lyrics

Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

No thanks to General Motors
Disguised as smaller companies
Big Oil and their lobbyists
Plutocrats that they bought

Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

Took over public streetcars
Replaced with dirty buses
Raised fare was unfair
Late routes made folks late

Next up was the Interstate Highway Act
Sold to the public in the name of national defense
Meantime the Federal Housing Administration
Was handing out low interest home loans
A great deal if your face was pale

Drive, taken for a ride, great American street car scandal

White flight on out
Barely acknowledge your neighbor
On your commute to work
Another insular community

We’re drowning in their sprawl
Short sighted strip malls
Fuck you goddamn thieves
Who sold us the American Scheme

Taken for a ride
