Lyrics

Battleground

Written By: Ben Kumpf

Uptown folks are dancing, downtown is a battleground

Planes are spreading cancer, lankmarks are no where to be found

Monkey on the altar, yeah his words are so profound

Autumn has escaped us, Jesus doesn't know quite how...

Faces filled with anger, a rat race town

Money is the answer, not enough to go around

Uptown folks are dancing, downtown is a battleground

Autumn has escaped us, Jesus doesn't know quite how...
