Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)

In the year that Richard Nixon removed the last vestiges of the gold standard, Marvin Gaye sang an anti-government diatribe entitled "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)"

The first verse points out that both the space program and the welfare state require taxpayers to foot the bill:

Rockets, moon shots
Spend it on the have nots
Money, we make it
'fore we see it, you'll take it

The second verse links the inflation tax with the military industrial complex:

Inflation, no chance
To increase finance
Bills pile up, sky high
Send that boy off to die

The third verse complains that life is hard enough without government adding to our troubles:

Hang ups, let downs
Bad breaks, set backs
The natural fact is
Honey, that I can't pay my taxes

The fourth verse warns us how security concerns are used to put us on a totalitarian path:

Crime is increasing
Trigger happy policing
Panic is spreading
God knows where, where we're heading
