LYRICS (B. Endes)

I know it’s true that we could run this joint much better than you
I know it’s true
The only reason you do it is for the cash and the underage ass
You ain’t ever seen the tracks and the tracks will be washed out soon
Now you could not care less about how it’s gonna end
That’s not part of the plan
Because capitalism ruins everything that’s worth doing
Why are all these kids holed up in trailers outside the walls of their schools
Why do we have
The biggest army but their families need food stamps and you’d get rid of those too
I go uptown and the townhouses gleam
Next to train stations with homeless populations
Because capitalism laughs at the other half
The myth of the self-made man is alive and well in America - right?
I can bring home the bacon fry it up in a pan
Never let you forget
The myth of the self-made man
I know it’s true that we could run this joint much better than you
I know it’s true
The only reason you do it is for the cash the cash the c-c-c-c-cash
You ain’t ever seen the tracks and you won’t hear the train coming through
Because capitalism ruins everything that’s worth doing
Because capitalism ruins everything
