lyrics

Aways making money

Just for other people

That is how we roll

That is just what we do

Always making stacks

For the ones above us

No matter how much we make

They're never gonna love us

The wealth rises up as the shit falls down

Some people think they should be wearing crowns

You see it everywhere all over town

It's the reason why I frown

Ownership is a mere invention

Created by the worst intention

Why do you think there's so much possession

Bipolar mania and depression

We've created a society

Where we pretend that we are free

When instead people like you and me

Pay for everything except to breathe

The food you eat, the box you live in

Everything bought and nothing given

You may call it a cost of living
I
call it totally unforgiving

Always making bucks

For the middlemen

You just can't give a fuck

Can I get an Amen?

Always making coin

To pay the parasites

Soon I'll be destroying

1948 fahrenheit

One man sells your time for profit
Then The Man takes his big cut off it

You think you won but really you lost it

You didn't realize what it really cost, it

What's a government anyway

Same corporation different day

At least right now that's what I say

Can't we find another way

To get some equitable distribution

There First Nations need a solution

We must fix this institution

Tear it all down and build some new shit

We have the will do we have the power

We need numbers to topple the towers

Tell the politicians to hit the shower

Meet me at the bar for Happy Hour

Osmosis Unlimited Love Injection

Gets right under your skin

Don't wash your hands spread the infection

Shake hands and give them the grin

Humbert's our leader

His vision is true

So now my dear reader

It's all up to you!

Aways making money

Just for other people

That is how we roll

That is just what we do

Always making stacks

For the ones above us

No matter how much we make
They're never gonna love us

Always making bucks

For the middlemen

You just can't give a fuck

Can I get an Amen?

Always making coin

To pay the parasites

Soon I'll be destroying

1948 fahrenheit
