Is The New Springsteen Single An Anthem for G'machim?

G'mach is an abbreviation for "gemilut chasadim" which is Hebrew for providing good deeds assistance to the less-than-fortunate and is used to described the community free loan system in traditional Jewish society.

Bruce Springsteen's new single is entitled "We Can Take Care of Own Own":

And that reference at the beginning to the "throne", is that a play off of Matisyahu's One Day?

see everybody that's existing got a mind of their own
we're all kings and queens with a throne of our own
tryn' raise a family in another big home
we gotta learn to stick together
hate to be here alone

hook (akon):
cuz the world is a place that will eat you alive in one day
said the world is a place that you cant survive without faith
