“We are focused on the war against drugs /
We are focused on the war against terror /
But what we need to be focused on…
Is the war against the middle class.
The battle for minimum wage /
The battle for health care /
The battle for decent schools /
Without the middle,
The structure will come tumbling down.”
New lyrics from Squair Blaq of Chicago Afrobeat Project added to the Marvin Gaye classic.
