  • Lyrics
  • This song is about people who have to survive on the streets and how bad their situation is, often times engaging in criminal acts or becoming junkies, all while the rich protect their money so that no one else may have it.
  • Slash from Guns 'N' Roses played guitar for this song - he could relate to the subject matter. The music video and song got a lot of attention due to Slash's involvement in the song. >>
