Watching Mrs. Brady prime the brand new Kenmore washer/
see the brilliant gleam of the automatic tooth flosser/ Beautiful the china, what a lovely cup and saucer/ yeah I saw your Rolex, but I think it’s an impostor/ Wave to the pretty ladies/ with your brand new hairpiece, baby/
Ahh, the smell of cash, it’s good to be alive/
I’m going to spend some dough like it’s 1985/
Rip the tags off mattresses/
you’ll buy more anyway/
Is the paint on that SUV/
some brand new type of gray?

chorus
Believe in anything/
Vultures circling/
Open, swallow/ you’re so hollow/
Yeah.

My teeth are getting yellow from the mocha I just drank/
I need to bleach them out, but my breath will still be rank/ Did you you see the new computers, aren’t they oh so obsolete?/ And that shade of black you wear, it’s so Tuesday of last week/ You need a better life/ Have you tried another wife?/ I used to be an amateur but now I’m going pro/ It once was Mile High but you sold it to Invesco/ The empire grows/ you can see it’s massive span/ beneath the golden arches/ somewhere in Japan.

bridge
And the vultures circle/
they’ve paved the way/
They’ve bit and clawed their path/
to top floors in L.A./
And beneath the brazen windows/
you can hear the sound/
they say the word on the street/
is “something’s going down”.../
When the revolution comes.

    General CommentThis is also based on consumerism, as a lot of their songs are. The want for more. The desire for new possessions and being the place of constant want.
    Having more and more physical items won't make us whole inside. the only thing that will do song is Jesus Christ.
    "Open, Swallow, you're so hollow"
    You constantly take in things of no worth. They won't fill you up. The physical items on earth are only temporay. Jesus' love endures all.

    General CommentThis song is bout the corperal scandals and the scams that companies use to get people to buy thier products and services. And while the economy echos into ruin those who have lied and decived thier way to the top get only richer.
