In the name of progress
hey tell me what it means
Does it include the countries raped
and the people you've enslaved?

Cheap labour good labour poor labour and lied to labour
Your philosophy is profit and it includes no such things as human needs no

In the name of progress
hey tell me what it means
Does it include paying cops
to clean up union sympathies?

Cheap labour good labour poor labour and lied to labour
The weapon is called enterprise and it's pointed at the casualties of slavery

And as the world leaders bury their heads in the sand
the exploitation continues...

In the name of progress
hey tell me what it means
Does it include your attempts
to divide this world in master/slave?

Cheap labour good labour poor labour and lied to labour
I cry for all the people abused and used in the name of progress...
