If I could bring you to
The water's edge
I could drown all our money,
All our money, all our money
And broke and free
Bet I'd make you sing
From the crow's nest
Spit on the rich and

Hah, laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death

Bus driver, get me out of here
We can't live in a house that's built on dollars
And in sense because we don't have either
But I got your back cause
You built mine out of brick!

Hah, laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death

My Mother's Mother, fetched the coal at night
Tucked her fire and fed it to the meek and we lived in
Black and white
Just like royalty
Cause that's all we need,
Oh to make the rich bleed.

Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death
Laugh ourselves to death

    General Commentnot sure but I think this is a stab at their record company and other bands for being motivated by their cupidity for money instead of simply the music.

    "I could drown all our money,
    All our money, all our money
    And broke and free
    Bet I'd make you sing
    From the crow's nest
    Spit on the rich" -- saying how they are in it for the music not the wealth

    "Bus driver, get me out of here
    We can't live in a house that's built on dollars" --wanting to get out of their record deal perhaps?

    General Comment"Bus driver.
    Get me out of here.
    We can’t live in a house that’s built on dollars and sense.
    Because we don’t have either.
    But I’ve got your back
    Cause you built mine out of brick."

    i think this verse he's sort of talking to the bus driver when he says "i got your back" cause they both aren't rich, but they'd rather their houses be built out of brick instead of "dollars and sense. wait..... cents??? =O
