Dead boys
Dig through all this condescension
Speech from the desert echo to cities
Coming in louder and clearer

Communicate this capital cancer
Fuck no !
Here's my answer

What are you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
When it's all gone, without a warning
What are you gonna do when it all
Comes down and crashing through
What are you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
When it's all gone, without a warning
What are you gonna do when it all
Comes crashing down on you?

Dead boys
Pave the road with good intentions

Did the banks buy our president?
The corporate bail-out
Heaven sent

Legislation from a company town
Washington D.C. burn it down

What are you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
When it's all gone, without a warning
What are you gonna do when it all
Comes down and crashing through
What are you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
When it's all gone, without a warning
What are you gonna do when it all
Comes crashing down on you

Without a warning we're dead, boys

With what they value,
How is this a surprise?
A better world will live on
In our eyes

    General CommentQuoting Thomas Barnett:

    Bailing out banks and seeing how thin our democracy is when it's run by wealth and power. Get prepared: sustainable farming, rooftop gardens, mutual aid in communities. Working outside this manufactured, immoral, fake social Darwinist dogma of competition. Basically, you don't have to fuck people over to survive. And we need to get ready because the whole economic system has been played out and laid out for people to continue to destroy our destiny.
