I'm Going Hungry Lyrics
(sometimes mistaken as a Pearl Jam song.
The actual title is "Hunger Strike" by former super group Temple of the Dog)

Well, I don't mind stealin' bread
From the mouths of decadence -
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already over-filled....

Yeah...

But it's on the table, the fire's cookin';
And the farmin' babies of the slaves are workin'.
Blood is on the table and the mouths are chokin'...
But I'm goin' hungry.

I don't mind stealing bread
From the mouths of decadence;
But I can't feed on the powerless
When my cup's already over-filled....mmmhmm....

But it's on the table, the fire's cookin';
And the farmin' babies of the slaves are a'workin'.
And it's on the table, the mouths are chokin'...
But I'm go'in hungry (I'm go'in hungry-yeh!)
I'm go'in hungry (I'm go'in hungry-yeah!)
I'm go'in hungry (I'm go'in hungry, yeah-eh-eh!)
I'm go'in hungry (I'm go'in hungry, yeeaahhhh-)

Mmm.. I'm go'in hungry! (I'm go'in hungry, yeah!)
I'm go'in hungry! (I'm go'in hungry, yeah!)
I'm go'in hungry! (I'm go'in hungry!)
(Yeah!)

Yeah, I don't mind stealin' bread, (mmm, I don't mind...)
(I don't mind steal'en bread, yeah)
No, I don't mind steal'en bread, oh-

I'm go'in hungry, (I'm go'in hungry!)
I'm go'in hungry (I'm go'in hungry!) Yeah-yeah!
