The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
What would you do for another dollar?
Stocks and bonds, watch the bull market crash
Hey Mr. Dow Jones, what do you think about that?
Industrialize the latest revolution, market to the broken
Cater to the rich and suffocate the poverty-stricken.
Hey Mr. Broker, when did you sell your soul?
The greed that’s grabbed ahold of you is taking its toll.
Gotta watch the bar graphs grow and get taller
Can’t you see the world around you?
Or is your vision just getting smaller and smaller.
We the People are sitting in the ashes of the bridges and hopes that you’ve burned
We’re hopeless helpless hapless
CAN YOU HEAR US NOW? CAN YOU HEAR THE 99 PERCENT?
But no -
After all, another day, another dollar
You gotta watch those graphs get taller
You gotta save the economy, you’re the modern superman
Ignore the ones you’ve paved over with multi-million dollar roads
After all, in order to win a war, you’ve gotta sacrifice a few souls
But in this so called war, you’re not fighting for us, you’re fighting for yourself
So you can s**t in golden rimmed toilets
And whipe your a** with hundred dollar bills
So the rich will get richer and the poor will get poorer
You’d kill for another dollar.
