Whatever the market will bear

What is the meaning of our lives?
Why are we here?
Since the dawn of time 
The question through the years
Profits
We’re here for profits
Separate them from their wealth
Move the products off the shelf
Profits
We’re here for profits
The only meaning of all life
We have got to get their money
At any cost
Even if it all gets bloody
And lives are lost
Transfer in the dead of night
They’ve all been squashed
We’ll do it out of sight
Keep them brainwashed
What will save our lives?
From the puppeteers
A trash pile we climb
Of novelties and souvenirs


Pockets
They fill their pockets
Regardless of anybody’s health
They Keep it all for themselves
Profits
We’re here for profits
The only meaning of all life
We have got to get their money
At any cost
Even if it all gets bloody
And lives are lost
Transfer in the dead of night
They’ve all been squashed
We’ll do it out of sight
Keep them brainwashed

Whatever the market is willing bear
This is going to be our share
Bombard them with advertising campaigns
Exploit the weaknesses within their brains
We’re going to take whatever we can
Clawing and scratching whatever they’ll stand
Wellbeing and health don’t mean a thing
To maximize the profits the only song that we sing
Millions and billions and trillions we take
Civilians opinions don’t mean a thing
Building these prisons so we can retreat
Constructing a system that only repeats
The onslaught continues day after day
Trading the hours, they send us their pay
Working for products they then throw away
Losing their life’s in an endless ballet
Now over to chuck for the mornings traffic update. 
How’s the commute looking today?
It's not good at all, we've got traffic backed up for 
miles. I feel bad for these suckers
