lyrics

On the back of workers, forced to the ground
To construct the buildings that they first burnt down
From the masters whip to the barrel of their guns
Sustainable labor, the poor have become

Four walls constrict me like white picket fences
A jail for the masses, cultural enslavement
We are whores to our wages and leases
If we could break this, we may be free
(yeah...maybe free)

Breathe polluted skylines distorted by highways
Burn coal for the factories, and fossils for driving
Then we'll keep walking through smog covered wastelands
Until our children no longer breathe

Farm for living, or die dancing in markets
With our credit rising, officials are crying
Bottle this water because these wells are tainted
These fracking arrangements, no end in sight
(No end in sight)
