lyrics

You’re dreams were made out of dollars
You’re pockets empty of love
Oh lord capitalism has become your god

Fill up your bags with money you owe
Give up those passions that felt like home
So you can live with energy clean and disease free

A place to waste away far from what your neighbors think
You met them in your T.V. every fucking day you’re scared and insecure
You grew up in a world where risk does not involve action

You’re dreams were made out of dollars
You’re pockets empty of love
Oh lord capitalism has become your god

I will never be ashamed of having less
Full hands caused by empty trends
Book another trip
The bags under your eyes are weighed down by debt

Crunching numbers to make ends meet
It frustrates you day by day it’s all the same shit
I see the true colours single file around me
They see each other as grey but its true colours haunt me

Is this natural?
Generations hurting for support
No work ethic no settlements
No way to carry the load

Ice hits my flesh we cannot look back
This is a dream we made for ourselves
Willing to fight it hopefully one day we can build it
Curse to free others from this binding

Living in a home you take for granted
You sold your soul for a better world
Open your eyes and watch your possessions slowly burn

I will be the man to show you the realm
You’re stuck in the same repeat
We can break it together and change this foundation

With our hands tied down we change the world
With love and compassion for the greater good
