the rich are getting richer, the poor are on a downward spiral, the poor don't have enough to eat, the common man lives in denial, a monopoly necesity, they want what belongs to you and me, but can't you see apparently, the truth means nothing when you have money

chorus:
you are not born with greed, a side effect of the american dream, what ever happened to, the common cents you once knew?

this is the beginning, the world will keep on spinning, but for what you've done, will you be forgiven? by your family, old friends you never see, that you tossed away on the day you got your pay, that's not the way, that it should stay, there's always time for changing, when your life needs rearranging

i can't believe that our soceity, is so impaired, and we're scared, scared to find the truth in the youth that we can't see.
