DRIFTERS' COLLECTIVE

ALTERNATIVE HIP HOP BAND

PLUTOCRACY

Hey mr. businessman, tell me what is the plan
if the capitalistic system is to stand
I assume a whole a lot of changes have to be made
from ideology, morals to international trade
still you argue high taxes would be good to prohibit
given they kill the spirit, I get it, there should be a limit
but cmon, its high time to put some things in proportion
scrutinize your motives and morals and then divorce them
and for the rich, I question what sense there is
in spending all your energy lowering tax percentages
when you all make more money than you can spend

now it's time to for you to listen, you’ve moved inside the prison
of consumerism, possession is the global jailer
material success has led to a social failure
a system where the rift between the rich and the poor
is getting bigger by the minute, time to kick in the door

 

What goes around, comes around round round
what goes around, comes around round
right about now, right-right about now
right about now, right-right about now
 

Hey mr. banker, let's talk about the system in place
a sophisticated way to steal, well it's a disgrace
you claim you create jobs, now expecting a thanks
when taxes are being used to bail out greedy investment banks
and the jokers claiming honour ‘n innocence
playing high-stakes poker with the money of citizens
at the wall street casino. its too sick a tale
if they lose they tell the government they're too big to fail
capitalism for the poor, socialism for corporations
lobbying for power in economics to dwarf the nations
the wealthier they get the more they influence the
legislation, “free-markets and less regulation”
more monopolies, and more cartels, more
corruption, no more options ‘n no moral bells
it's a blunder, I wonder what you make of the glitch
when the poor will always pay for the mistakes of the rich
 

What goes around, comes around round round
what goes around, comes around round
right about now, right-right about now
right about now, right-right about now
 

Hey mr politician, correct me if I'm missing the point
but I'm just trying to understand what the underlying plan is
if everything is always quid pro quo, it's like a sitcom show
we sit back and watch the rich ones grow
with all decisionmaking based on lobbying, it's obvious

We all are kneeling down to where the power is
politics, doesn't stand its ground on its own, when the brands
are always there to lay their claims on the throne so

we're being told to depend on corporations
like an epidemic spreading out through the nations
lets face it, we don't even fight it, we embrace it
we just smile along as our morals are replaced and
its gracefully Planned from Freud to Bernays, man
PR, propaganda it's all in the same scam
call it what you will, I'll buy your thoughts for a penny
when the setup serves greed at the expense of the many
 

What goes around, comes around round round
what goes around, comes around round
right about now, right-right about now
right about now, right-right about now
