Turn on CC for lyrics: We’re stuck in a vicious cycle Wake, work, eat, sleep, repeat Serve like mindless disciples Praise the dollar, we use to make ends meet Bow down to the holy savior The shrine that holds the gold Embrace visions of grandeur Indebted with interest they hold We’re living the reality that we Will slave away for every night and day until we Grow old, wrinkled, tired and grey Until we bite the dust, our lives stolen from us for nothing Pay back the gods with minimum wage For they have set the stage, dangle the carrot on a string above us We jumped so high with arms outstretched, now we are doomed to pledge Allegiance to monopolizing business We’ve slaved our lives away Bare the scars from where we’ve bled But what was it for The pigs just want more Replace all our hope with dread We must beg to our masters Roll on the ground and kiss their feet It’s in their eyes There’s no disguise Their thirst for wealth is so insatiable Rape the soil And reap nectar within They plot their plans Elaborate scams To fool us all into believing them Kill the world Whilst they steal from the working man Steal it all Steal it all Grab everything that they can Steal it all Steal it all Everything not tied down We must beg to our masters Roll on the ground and kiss their feet They’ll stop at nothing Make contracts arranged for your soul Reward the ignorant with this toll Creating plastic designed to use out of control. Cutting hours decrease payroll. The Wolves are hungry for blood They circle round your door The leeches never give up Drink till you breathe no more. We’re all just slaves We’re all just slaves
