No system... can sustain... our... greed.

They crushed our creativeness, they crushed our independence,
They offered us convenience and we became dependant.
Exploit our basic instincts, take advantage of our weakness,
They sacrifice our freedom in order to make profit.
Stand up, be counted, stand up, be counted,
Because to them you're just a number.
Give up and take it, give up and take it,
That's exactly where they want you,
Over worked, underpaid,
Exploited, physically and mentally drained.

The system that plays us
Is the system that made us,
And that system, it is the system
That betrays us.
In my escape I sense truth and I sense wisdom,
And in this day and age, yes, I value them and need them.
So I value them and need them just to keep my peace of mind,
To maintain a set of standards and a respect for all life.

No system... can sustain... our... greed.

They crushed our creativeness, they crushed our independence,
They offered us convenience and we became dependant.
Exploit our basic instincts, take advantage of our weakness,
They sacrifice our freedom in order to make profit.
Stand up, be counted, stand up, be counted,
Because to them you're just a number.
Give up and take it, give up and take it,
That's exactly where they want you,
Over worked, underpaid,
Exploited, physically and mentally drained.

We say no to the greedy, we say no to a war,
That's unjustified and based on lies in the bid for power and oil.
We live our lives as if business was our religion,
And the powerful put this before the people with every important decision.
In my escape I sense truth and I sense wisdom,
And in this day and age, yes, I value them and need them.
So I value them and need them just to keep my peace of mind,
To maintain a set of standards and a respect for all life.

In this mike within my hand
I make a call, take a stand
For freedom and equality,
Respect for all the workers basic rights and needs.
Don't wanna think about it, don't get it do you?
You keep telling yourself that it don't affect you.
Try thinking 'bout someone else just for a change.

Resist! Resist!
Resist!
