JUST COUNT YOUR COIN

Lyrics

JUST COUNT YOUR COIN

We are the victims of your point of view
You think the world was put here just for you
You deal in cash and you manipulate
The devil helps you navigate

Sell your bombs, put your landmines under children’s feet
Cut the old growth forests down
Pump the oil into oceans, poison every creek
Don’t let your conscience rejoin, just count your coin

Find the island we call paradise
Build your house and say it’s mighty nice
Then one year later stand and make your speech
Announcing strip malls on the beach

Buy all the water, make us pay to take a drink
Claim all the seeds from Nature’s womb
Advertise to our children, tell them what to think
Don’t let your conscience rejoin, just count your coin

I remember times of innocence
When our minds were not for sale
Yes, I remember times of innocence
But we’ve let heaven go to hell, yes go to hell

Take a pill that says it’s time for sex
Take another ‘cause your life’s a mess
Be a victim of their point of view
Don’t stand up and shout, “Hey, you!”

“Take your bombs and shove them where the sun don’t shone
Leave those goddamn trees alone
You can have your piece but this world’s also mine
Stop acting like you were just born to count your coin”

I remember times of innocence
When our souls were not for sale
Yes, I remember times of innocence
But we’ve let heaven go to hell, yes go to hell

“Take your bombs and shove them where the sun don’t shone
Leave those goddamn trees alone
You can have your piece but this world’s also mine
Stop acting like you were just born to count your coin”
