"We gentrified, we victimized, we fighting for survival / No hopes and dreams, just leave us be, we leaning on the bible / They preying on us, praying for a better day tomorrow / Hide the fear behind this here bravado," go key lines of this song from Summertime '06 that played on the Stubb's stage in Austin as both a wound and a warning.
