The Money Song

The money has been talkin' for too long
It never seems to shut up and listen to the song
It don't hear no one cryin' when skies get filled with bombs
It can not hear what it is doing wrong

You fire a missile, money changes hands
Contracts are awarded to destroy and rebuild lands
War men role in resources with all their loyal fans
Rejoicing in them free market demands

Hunger feeds economies
Now it needs war and jealousy
Hunger feeds, hunger feeds
Hunger feeds Economies

Raising them kids takes all day everyday
but it ain't in the numbers of society
It's the most important job. There ain't no other way
But it don't count if it doesn't pay

Them diamond ring's is highly valued things
But air and water are our most precious borrowings
The silence of a summer day, the way a song bird sings
Reminds me of what money doesn't bring

Hunger feeds...

It used to be that everything was free
But thieves in suits are in cahoots to claim their property
It wouldn't be this way if it was up to you and me
Ain't got no choice in this democracy

Hunger feeds economies
