Ten percent of the land
Is the hand that pulls the strings
Be the privileged few
To have to own to hold

Power over the people
Yes, yes, power over people
Be the privileged few
To have to own to hold

Money, property, assets before lives
Green gestures of a dying planet
An endless debate only too late
An appetite for gluttony

The only way is up, the only way is up
But when you are up you have to try and stay there
So you stamp and cheat on people
Stamp and cheat on people

Champagne breakfast
Rewards for the killing
And a fast waist bulging, indulging
In what you call good living

But most of all there is too much fat on your heart, pig
A lifestyle of cholesterol
Cross colateralized cholesterol
Saving what's left from profit margin for what?

I'll tell you what for
For some irrelevant conscience
Easing charity, why?
Just to justify, just to justify

Look at this utopia
A society based, based on solid foundations
Educate our children, educate them well
To feather the nest and fuck the rest
Yes, yes, feather the nest and fuck the rest

The waste expands, your waist expands
While others stand at the back of the queue
I mean you

Still the same old security
For your creature comforts
Exchanging the hours of your life
For the cash you've already spent

Eating rubbish so you can pay the rent
Table wine once a week if you're lucky
In comparison

Privatize the people's lives
Be part of the company or fade
The appliance of science
To privatize their lives

Water is our business
Electricity is our business
Gas is our business
Lives are our business
Business is our business

Your money, my time
Your stinking industrial bathwater, my wine
Imbalance induces hate
How will you breach the gap
Between the endless buffet
(incomprehensible) i have

I feel hate, i feel hate
I feel hate, i feel hate
Don't be afraid to show your hate, hate

You just treat me like a commodity
You didn't know i couldn't even afford to feed my family
I just want to kill, i just want to take a gun
And put it to your head and pull the trigger
