The West was bought with blood money
And everybody bought in for the profits they told they would receive
Economy never looked so good, but nobody planned to
Jump off skyscrapers without their parachutes
The promises made and investments laid
They gave their lives and lost it all in trade

And as it’s told (the bank vaults seal and close)
While million dollar moguls get their ties caught up in choke holds
Their countries paid with debt (countries paid with debt)
Which seems an easy consequence that any broker would
Trade for death

Sell, sell, sell before it’s too late, everyone’s in a panic losing money
Like dams without flood gates
And what’d you buy with all your wealth?
A chance to crowd the streets, a hope to eat so you can keep your health
And now that you’re broke, fortune’s up in smoke
Well here’s a hand I’ll help you hold their throats...

And as it’s told (the bank vaults seal and close)
While million dollar moguls get their ties caught up in choke holds
Their countries paid with debt (countries paid with debt)
Which seems an easy consequence that any broker would
Trade for death

The promises made and investments laid
They gave their lives and lost it all in trade
And now that you’re broke, fortune’s up in smoke
Well here’s a hand I’ll help you hold their throats...

Of powerful men with empty pockets with holes in them
And never to wait and witness the day
The markets crash again, again.
Oh look, they crashed again.
