An open space for global conversation
graspin' fat-cats grabbin' cash,
raidin' savings, stealin' dreams.
cocksure corporate kleptocrats
pullin' politicians strings.
presidents an' p.m.'s spin
- truth can't out while lies are "in".
gov'ments been contracted out,
human rights? forget about...
here comes plutocracy.
banks an' brokers oilin' wheels,
cov'rin' up their shady deals.
masonic judges holdin' court,
phoney "prophets" rob the poor.
publicists an' p.r. liars
twistin' weasel words like wires.
journalists write what they're told
by publishers who think they're God.
nations chargin' into war
- corporate backers reap rewards.
kings an' despots on our side
- great for business, bad for rights.
the rich are revellin' in their loot
while billions are destitute
- fashion, sport an' shoppin' malls
tranquillisin' any qualms.
you better be rich
if you wanna be free
