lyrics

Round here there's buildings to see,
void of meaning, all broke and empty.
Round here there's people to see,
lying in state, wakes aplenty.
They all died of cold in their sleep.
They all died of cold in their sleep.

Round here there's buildings to see,
void of meaning, all broke and empty.
Round here there's people to see,
lying in state, wakes aplenty.
They all died of cold in their sleep.
They all died of cold in their sleep.

They work all day and worry all night,
they teach, they trade, they cry and fight.
They work all day and worry all night,
they build and move from site to site.
They break their backs to pay off banks
for tracts of land worked by their hands,
They wake before the sun lights land
to feed and meet the young ones needs,
We're prisoners in our minds, our time
is tied to capital's designs.

Billboards in town preaching remedies.
Working, aching, feeding the machine
Every minute until our dying breaths withering.

We fell for this
protection racket.
Long waiting lists
for the scraps undamaged.
We fell for this
protection racket.
We fell for it.
So democratic.

We fell for it.
