You Plotted
For the carotid
Going straight for the throat

You knew it
You put us through it
And that was all she wrote

The end is coming and it’s right on time
A perfect ending to your nursery rhyme

No way in hell that we’ll let you escape
Tried for your crimes, and it’s never too late

The defendant will rise and repeat after me

Do you solemnly swear to tell the whole truth as it should be?

You Pillaged
The Village
Then moved your business over seas

You shut down
The whole town
Because profit’s all you see

Your making slaves in a foreign land
You pay no taxes just because you can

You roll the dice, let the blood spill
Skipping town before you pay your bill

We’re after You
You are Through
The jig is up
The lines been cut
Blown to smithereens
For the CEO
It’s time you go
Your legal team
Can hear you scream
Check and mate
As we seal you fate

Fuck the kings and queens
Of the money schemes

Fuck the board of directors
And wall street investors

All the politics and the pieces of shit
All of the willing participants

If you’re going to gamble, you’re gonna get bit
We refuse your plea that your innocent

You’ve commented the crime and you’ve sealed your fate
For you and your partners it’s all to late

Nowhere to hide
You lived those lies
Nowhere to run
To escape the fun
For decades we tried
For decades you lied
Its us or you
No other point of views

You're being tried in the of the court of last resort
We’re turning the law into a contact sport

You've had chance after chance to amend your ways
Your reply after reply has been to stay the same

Profits over people has collapsed the world
Whole nations are in peril while this mess unfurls

Careless corporations out to change the laws
Corrupt politicians only heed their cause
