"Are you guys shoplifting?"
"Four finger discount dude."
"Shoplifting is a victimless crime, like punching someone in the dark!"
"Ha ha, ha ha, ha ha!"

Yeah!

Woah...
It’s five to twelve or far too late,
Woah...
Thanks for your purchase, next consumer please,
How do you want to pay? Credit card or cash!
No matter, as long as you stuff your money in their corrupt asses
And into the dirty industries of child labour...
For more western prosperity.

And the supermarkets grow like cancer, (Cancer!)
Out of the dead and infected ground (The ground!)
Of every captured country,
One by one, by one by...

Woah...
But 24 hour publicity terror,
Woah...
Sweetens the bitter taste of being
Bought and sold, abused and controlled,
Betrayed and delayed, oppressed and wasted away
In their factories.
For every single product they make, you think you need.

In a world turned upside down,
You have to be a thief to be a honest human.
You have to be a thief, you have to be a thief!
In a world turned upside down,
You have to be a thief to be a honest human.
You have to be a thief, you have to be a thief!

Woah...
I got their products in my pockets,
Woah...
But they ain't got my bucks. (My bucks!)
And the supermarkets grow like cancer,
Out of the dead and infected ground
Of every captured country,
One by one, by one by one.

Yeah! One... Yeah!

In a world turned upside down,
You have to be a thief to be a honest human.
You have to be a thief, you have to be a thief!
In a world turned upside down,
You have to be a thief to be a honest human.
You have to be a thief, you have to be a thief!

    General CommentInlay notes say:
    In this capitalist society we only see products and their prices. All alternative structures get more and more destroyed by their new mega stores and supermarkets. They offer more products, while the quality decreases. Tonnes of food are thrown away to keep prices high every day, as you can see if you sneak behind the stores and take a look into their dumpsters! A lot of the products they sell are produced in poor countries where workers get oppressed and ripped off every day, and millions of animals die in their slaughterhouses. This happens everywhere in every rich country!!!!! We are privileged to live in those countries, so we have to decide whether we support this exploitation silently or we quit paying. It’s easy to make a living out of shoplifting and dumpster diving. This alone will not change the world but it’s exiting and a start...
