(ill YAY' mee) n.
award-winning percussive rock-folk from Baltimore, MD

Terms.

Stocks jumped
And so did the brokers
What a jolt
What a ride
I just found out I got skin in the game
And I've been hitting F5 like an amateur

I'm showing my age
With my subjects & glances
And my choices in logos & pants
I just found out
I got skin in the game
And I've been screaming my loudest with the rest of them.
Yeah screaming my loudest with the rest of them.

My vote is in
And so are the taxes
I'm still waiting on the roads & the pot holes & patches
No one else gets it
We got skin in the game
Y'all just duck & blame all the rest of 'em
Flint is choking but at least now they got coverage
And California is bleeding but at least they've all got insurance
Volkswagon's grinning cause at least it's deductible
So they'll pay up & smile like the rest of them.
Yeah just pay up & smile like the rest of them.
What, you gonna sit back & laugh?

Thoughts jumped and so did the lyrics you know
Inspiration only gets you so far
I just found out I've got skin in the game
And I've been playing my heart out for hours
Waiting by the phone & the road & the courthouse
I'm waiting all alone & with saints & with rapists
We all found out we got skin in the game
But it sure seems like nobody gets it.
Yeah it sure seems like nobody gets it
You all sit back & laugh

Well I've come to terms
With my place in the country
my privilege, my hatred, my well-deserved currency
The air waves are filled
With the absolutely surety
That nobody matters
And freedom's a fallacy
majority rules SURE
But it don't mean you know me
It's no zero sum game
till everyone's bleeding
What, you gonna sit back & laugh?

Wrap it up!
I just found out you're as sure as the rest of us
And I can't wait till you figure out why
I'm hoping you'll soon get as sore as the rest of us
And I'm thinking that you'll figure out why
Now I'm showing my age
With my first-person narrative
I just thought I had something to say
Turns out I'm just a product of all of you people
And I guess that sort of makes us the same
Yeah I guess that sort of makes us the same.
Don't just sit back & laugh.

Cause I've come to terms...
