lyrics

Global commerce, the savings are passed to you
As to from where those savings came, that's an afterthought
Freedom from consequences makes the world go 'round
Consumers don't ask questions
Why question the inevitable?
Stockholders sing a merry tune
Globalization
Banana trees with twisted roots
That overwhelm the seedlings
That cling to life, dwarfed by the trees
A weak hold on unstable ground
We regret our pesticide's unforeseen effects
Leukemia and birth defects
Whatcha gonna do?
Gonna sue us mother fuckers?
Try and fucking sue us!
Even in war, workers can be outsourced
Mercenaries are war-profiteers
Travel the world, have great job security
Man, what a swell career!
Avalanche of junk
A third world garbage heap
We sow the seeds of chaos
The harvest ours to reap
Why pay adults to work the mines
When kids are just as cheap
What are human rights abuses? I dunno
Just look at our bottom line
Global commerce is broken
The culture of impunity must be eradicated
Feel like I'm talking to myself
Even I believed I've lost my fucking mind
Wanna rip my fucking eyes out
To purge psychotic visions from my head
Concerned, the doctors bring my medication
I guess the truth can drive a man insane
Once there was a hive of bees whose honey was sublime
Mr. cockroach found a way to get what was inside
He promised riches to a drone
Through civil war, he gained the throne
Meanwhile, the cockroach gorged himself on the prize
Ah! Ah! Ah-ah!
There's gold in them thar hills!
Ah! Ah! Ah-ah!
We're taking your fucking land
It’s really not our fault
Pretty sure it's not our fault
I guess sometimes a civil war just erupts
Sustainable mining, safe waste disposal
Chemical spills mean capital gains
Now I guess zykklon b is a vacuum
Man how the times have changed
Why rely on workers
When slaves work just as well
Government contracts give new meaning to
The phrase 'don't ask, don't tell'
This medication gives you AIDS
Do you think it will sell?
No court in the world would convict us, literally
Just look at our bottom line
Global commerce is broken
The culture of impunity must be eradicated
Feel like I'm talking to myself
Even I believed I've lost my fucking mind
Wanna rip my fucking eyes out
To purge psychotic visions from my head
Concerned, the doctors bring my medication
I guess the truth can drive a man insane
In the garden
Lies the great leviathan
Whose tentacles
Reach out to draw in helpless prey
Beware the garden
The beast will soon outgrow its lair
What was hidden
Will rise to devour us all
