about

Seeing as no one was punished for the reckless behavior that caused the financial crisis I thought maybe those who should have been might be looking forward to some serious hellfire and brimstone. They'll crave “Ice Water” but they won't get any.

lyrics

Ice Water c. 2013 Sidney S. Whelan

People in Hell
They want ice water
Now you come talkin’
You didn’t do what you oughta
Schuckin an Jivin
Out the side of your head
Protestin’ an denyin’
But you made your own bed

Ice water, Ice water - long, tall, cool drink ‘cause
You know you want it, you got to have it.

People in Hell
They want ice water
But what you been teachin’
Your sons and your daughters?
Cheatin’ and lyin’
Just to get ahead
But they only tryin’
Out things that you said.

Ice water, Ice water - long, tall, cool drink ‘cause
You know you want it, you got to have it.

People in Hell
They want ice water
Say they’re all innocent
Don’t deserve these quarters
You come to me cryin’
Sayin’ it’s not your fault
But nobody made you
Do that credit default

Ice water, Ice water - long, tall, cool drink ‘cause
You know you want it, you got to have it.
