    Did you ever stop to think about whatcha gonna do
    With your responsibility?
    Or did you,
    Just take this job cause it would
    Be good for the money
    And did you
    Ever stop to think
    About your duty to mankind
    Or did you,
    Think ya take this job do favours
    For you friends and waste all our time?
    So tell me man
    Do you realize what you're doing to this good country?
    Cause you're selling it all away for your economic
    And you,
    Justify everything you do
    With the people that you say you're gonna employ
    But the unemployment line is getting bigger every year
    And you treat us all like toys.
    We're just expendable to you
    Along now with this land
    And there ain't no room left for empathy
    And this is something I don't understand
    Don't make no sense to me
    Justifying everything we do on our economy
    And there ain't no room
    No more room left for human decency
    Justifying everything we do on our economy
    And the only time you listen to the people
    Is when you think you won't get their vote
    Otherwise you really could not give a shit
    Don't mind rockin all our boats
    And the greatest living friend is a man who goes by
    The name of apathy
    And we let you get away with everything you like so
    You make all your money
    But I tell you something right now old man
    And this is a fair old warning to you
    That the people are waking up
    And gonna make you accountable too
    Just like the nazi trials in Nuremberg
    Hell not so long ago
    Gonna make you pay for what you have done
    Gonna make you responsible
    Cause I don't understand
    Don't understand
    Don't understand
    What head space you are in
    So it must be lies you're speaking
    And the land that you love he could not give a damn
    And the ocean that you love do you think he could give
    A shit about?
    And the trees that you love do you think he could give
    A fuck about?
    And the family that you love do you think he could give
    A damn about?
