Lyrics

Drop by drop and step by step
One gives what the other one gets, it’s an
Old saw, but you know it’s true
You’re waiting for the other shoe

Meltdown - like fire on the lawn
Hurts those most put-upon
It’s a red line, you know what they do
You wouldn’t want it done to you!

And you know, and you see, that it’s:
Hard Times in the Heart of the City,
People giving up their ground,
People losing half their town,

Look ‘round it’s all trickled down
In for a penny in for a pound, it’s a
Red Flag they’re moving on you
You wouldn’t want to misconstrue

Block by block and inch by inch
They buy down what they couldn’t pinch
Tighten your belt, you’ve known what to do
Was that the last one to make it through?
And you’re screwed, and you see that it’s

Hard Times in the Heart of the City
People selling off their land
People making one last stand

Thread Dyer used to live next door
Wasn’t rich but he wasn’t poor
Lost it all in the crash of ’08, was it
His move to deregulate?

But floods come and floods go, and it's
Hard Times in the Heart of the City
People giving up their ground
People losing half their town

Oh - Hard Times in the Heart of the City
People moving off their land
People making one last stand!
