lyrics

We’ve been told throughout our lives
To work real hard we must survive

We’ve been taught to do our best
Extend a hand to help the rest

But we don’t even have a future
Stole from us we’ve got the picture

Drowned in debt we can’t repay
To a faceless the banker we are the slaves

Five years from now, will we survive?
How will we conduct our lives?

Can we escape this dead-end street?
Or are we just destined to repeat?

Like solders falling one by one
We aim our star ship towards the sun

This endless treadmill, can’t sustain
A world collapse under your strain

Profits soaring once again
Bite into the jugular vein

The corporation as a citizen
The human being equivalent

But we don’t even have a future
Stole from us we’ve got the picture

Drowned in debt we can’t repay
To a faceless the banker we are the slaves

Now were fighting for are lives
No way to know if we’ll survive

Dragging nature down the drain
No way to know what will remain

For generations down the line
Always work to undermine

We can’t even see a future
Leveraged for the baby boomer

Longest living, Power hungry
Never giving, after money

Hand extended; Weapons drawn
Shoulders shrugging, where’s it gone?

Responsibility is passed
Just like the debt that they’ve amassed

Systems built no one can stop
Automation at the top

WE ARE SO FUCKED
