about

Especially relevant in the wake of the Panama Papers, this song questions why people seem to make allowances for the rich in the form of tax breaks and special treatment. The workers need to understand that they will NEVER be those people, they will NEVER get their place in the sun, and so by working together with the rest of us who will never be rich, we can create a better quality of life for us all.

lyrics

I decry the system which generates the full collapse of everyone's souls
Stand up, fight back, and choose the alternative:
Freedom from greenback's ruthless control.

But you sit and wait
You want what they've got
Patiently waiting
For your time at the top
Yeah you're hurting now
But you force out a grin
But you still don't realise:
YOU WILL NEVER BE THEM

Assimilation, complete and secure
Forever a slave to it all.
Surrender your free will, don't want to be poor,
Determined to never fall down, down, down, down

Toss your ideals on the fire of wealth and
Well watch it all burn up into the night
Once you're gone you'll never understand why you're losing the fight

But you sit and wait
Still want what they've got
Patiently waiting
For your time at the top
But you still don't see
So I'll tell you again:
No matter how hard you try
YOU WILL NEVER BE THEM

Born into a broken system
Cry; hand-to-mouth, scream, hand-to-mouth, scream

We bleed red but you bleed green
Content to be enslaved to dreams of acquisition

Follow the path as laid down by your masters,
Promised a kingdom of lies built on sand,
Claim you're too deeply entrenched to be saved now;
WHY AREN'T YOU MAKING DEMANDS?

Power concedes nothing without a demand.
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
Power concedes nothing without a demand.
POWER CONCEDES NOTHING WITHOUT A DEMAND!
POWER CONCEDES NOTHING WITHOUT A DEMAND!
POWER CONCEDES NOTHING WITHOUT A DEMAND!
BUT YOU WON'T EVEN WASH THE FUCKING BLOOD OFF YOUR HANDS!

WE BLEED RED, BUT YOU BLEED GREEN
