Now you've thrown your past agreements into the fire
And your government's become a whore
For outside interests that now enslave the poor
Their suffering now stands ignored, pushed out - spat on
Turn jobs into weapons to make a profit out of blood, sweat and lies
Free trade sounds easy and so damned harmless
Until they're exploited by blind eyes, chewed through - spat out
The evil that you feed improves economy for the rich that run your campaign
Increase the bottom line, your role again defined, out with the old and in with the same
Time to unmask the devil
Divide and conquer, kill off and prosper, recite the game that you've been sold
Manifest destiny, your life atrocities, responsibility annulled, pushed out - enslaved
When will their wants meet our needs, when will their words match their deeds
When will the time come to stand and take it back from their hands
The blood is on your hands, life stealing motherxxxxers
The constitution burns to ash in front of you, the people know what you are up to
Your sins will come back on you

    General Commentobviously war profiteers. this was one of my favorites for awhile, one of their most political. this was done awhile ago, but it makes a statement about the present, which means it's kind of timeless. beautiful.

    General CommentThis song is about the corporations that make donations to US election campaigns influencing that party's policy.

    The interests of corporations tend to focus on issues outside of the country (such as oil) "for outside interests that now enslave the poor" which leaves no money to fix issues within the country (health care, poverty presumably)

    "increase the bottom line, your role again defined" - again talking about political parties only being concerned with pleasing their campaign sponsors.

    Hes also hinting at here that it is therefore the corporations that are running the country "out with the old in with the same". No matter who wins the election, the same people are running it.
