goodbye to your useless way
say hello economic slavery
no more laughing
just metered breathing
you are ours now
your hours ours

learn to become a headless worker
you know we'll love to use you
just how we like
we know you'll bow
know you'll bow to a bill held high


you're gonna eat it
you just trust me, baby
this endless cycle
just where we want you
drowin' in the bottle pile,
chokin' on the joke, 5 cent return

go on crawlin', baby
scratchin' those tickets, maybe...
how 'bout another pop,
before your heart it stops?
gotta pay,
gotta pay if you wanna survive

NO. WAY. OUT. x2

we'll make you watch
as your family and friends are freezing
eating out of garbage cans
living where they can't get in
where is the dream?
where is the dream?
not in this country

we got you until you die
suck up your force
watchin' you expire
'keep your colorless dreams,
they just keep you wanting'
drowning in the bottle pile
chokin' on the joke,
