Japanese John, his slight face fur
Still just as confused still just as sure
He's still just as charming, points out the view
As he hands your wage to you
Don't you break it
Or they'll take it

Who makes your money
Who thinks they might
Who's gonna be there to take the fight
Some try to relax
Some try to know
Some try to get there with no place to go
No place to go
Who makes your money
Oh they take it

When all is quiet and on your own
And all your love, there it goes
It's come to hate
With everything you call
And now your back
Is against the wall
Who makes your money

    General Comment:oh, the moral dilemma. it sounds like he's talking about someone working in corporate america. selling your soul, be it for rent or for material pleasures.

    'all your love, there it goes. it's come to hate with everything you call'

    i love that i need to work at a place who's philosophy i resent and am disgusted by so i can make ends meet.

    all in all, insightful lyrics, fun vocals, sexy music; spoon at their finest!

    General Comment:Here is my take on the song. Who makes your money is chanted as somewhat of a reflection on who is actually benefiting from the work carried out. It's not worth it. This is obvious with the lines-

    And all your love, there it goes
    It's come to hate

    The ownership no longer belongs to the person actually "getting" the money because they are losing something much more valuable.
