"Cold Cash And Colder Hearts" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
They are sick, they are poor
And they die by the thousands and we look away
They are wolves at the door
And they're not gonna move us or get in our way

Cause we don't have the time
Here at the top of the world
Feeling alright
Here at the top of the world

We hold our own by keeping our hearts cold

Different god, darker skin
They are just not a burden that we'd like to bear
They are living in "sin"
There are so many reasons for us not to care

But I'm feeling alright
Here at the top of the world
Doing just fine
Here at the top of the world

We've learned money matters most
So we keep our cards held close
Here at the top of the world

We hold our own by keeping our hearts cold
And we've learned what matters most
So we keep our hearts cold

They are no one
They are nowhere
They are not our problem
Not worth saving
Nonexistent if we keep our hearts cold

    General CommentSong's pretty clear, I found it to be powerful in the way that they are coming outright and saying this, not being as subtle as they usually are with lyrics.

    General Commentthis is an amazing song. i haven't heard a GREAT political song in a while. I view it as how people today treat the war in Iraque.

    General CommentYea, I had figured that it was talking about the rich and the poor/homeless. But I didn't understand the 'different god' and 'they are living in sin' part. How does apply to the poor/homeless?

    General CommentThe "different God" could be money, seeing how money rules over people when they become to obsessed with it. And the living in sin part could be a reference to "money is the root of all evil" or however the qoute goes.
