lyrics

Hey, hey, western world,
We've come so far
We got Nestle using child slaves
To make us chocolate bars
But who the hell cares?
As long as it benefits you
They signed a contract with the government
Now they own the water too

Nike and Wal-Mart,
we are so proud of thee
Using sweat shop labor overseas
While we pretend not to see
I say, hey, hey, hey, hey western world
Pat yourself on the back
Join the army, trade your humanity
And keep this empire on track

Keep your head down
Pay no attention
Go to school, go to work,
Pay taxes, not attention

Imperialists of the world, give yourselves a hand
UK, Israel, France, Canada, and of course, the US of A

The free market is more sacred
Than your petty human rights
Pretty soon we'll charge you monthly
For using the sunlight
But you better not use that sun
For your home energy
Because solar power is a loss
For the electric company
People tell me that I'm cynical
But I have nice dreams too
I watch the fancy cars of Scottsdale
Smashed into little cubes
Fuck you

Keep your head down
Pay no attention
Go to school, go to work,
Pay taxes, not attention

Pay your taxes, pay your fines, pay your legal fees, pay your loans, pay your rent, pay your registration, pay us everything we demand, just don't pay attention. Don't pay attention to any of the heinous shit that we're doing in your name.

Blah, blah, blah
blah, blah, blah
