You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
Made a decision, gonna scream out loud
Common sense and survival
But you don't get the meanin'
A lie, sacrifice the truth for a good life
Replace your guilt with gold and deny,
While people starve
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
You get it, that's right, you get it, yeah
Made a decision, gonna scream out loud
Common sense and survival
But you don't get the meanin'
A lie, sacrifice the truth for a good life
Replace your guilt with gold and deny,
While people starve
Well alright, well alright, well alright
Well alright, well alright, it's alright

    General CommentFrom the CD booklet:

    "America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves... Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power or gold. No such tales are told by the American poor."

    *Kurt Vonnegut - Slaughterhouse-five
