Well if you set your mind upon it
I know that you can
You've got everything you wanted
You've done everything you planned
So let me make an offer
I'm only trying to help
You can make your load
Just a little lighter
All you got to do is share the wealth

Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself
Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself

Well I know you got problems
I see it in your eyes
But if you want to live
To see the morning
Give it up to your brother
Or you'll get a surprise

Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself
Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself

Well, it's time to see
You got to give or you're gonna receive
It's time to see
You got live if you want to believe

Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself
Oh no don't you keep your
Good luck to yourself

    General CommentI don't think it's about loan sharks. Audioslave probably have some sort of socialist principles, (being formed from remnants of Rage) and this is a very socialist song. "Sharing the wealth" is what it's all about. The singer presents himself as trying to help the person who has amassed this personal wealth, that would be better spent on fellow human beings. It is a warning against those who are greedy and have huge excess while living in proximity to those who have almost nothing. Probably not without relation, Audiosalve were the first U.S. band to play a rock concert in Cuba.
