lyrics

Go on Yuppie, get your money
Put it in the stock market, watch it grow
If you take a loss, keep your fingers crossed
and maybe the government will bail you out
Whoever thought there was risk involved
never had that law in his palms
Diversify your portfolio,
and keep a lotta senators in your bankroll

everybody wants a cushy job
and to make lots of money and be a snob
Nobody wants to turn them gears,
Spending blood, sweat, and tears.
They all want to sit at a desk,
Wait 'til 5 then collect a check
they expect that money for nothin
the Big bonuses to push less buttons

It's all just a house of cards
One false move and it's coming down so hard
We built this house without glue or tape,
and we all know how little it takes
Before the whole thing accepts its fate

And it's all falling down
our prayers won't save us now
And it's all falling down
our prayers won't save us now

It's like 2, 4, 6, 8
and um... NASDAQ futures are STILL lookin great
I can't WAIT - till the rising tide makes all of life better
Hey look here it comes now... wait... Um, don't talk about the weather.
Talk about how the FTC can aprove the M&As
since we only need - two or three - companies anyways
just find me the closest corporation to praise
We got your 401ks - So everybody plays.
And you can say - say - say - what you want
in a phat mink coat - on a boat - that you flaunt
One dollar one vote - is how we promote - democratization
ALL OF YOUR LEGISLATION ARE BELONG TO CORPORATION.
This is Goldman Sachs' Nation - Go get your own
Better yet, just take your medication and STAY HOME!

[first verse and chorus repeats]

Somebody had better throw this anchor overboard
this ship here is like a bullet train retrofitted for war
the U.S. shoots, SHE SCORES! - All your oils
and your foods and your trees and your waters and your soils
but you get to keep your toils as somethin to savor
it's the latest Dow Jones flavor and it tastes like child labor
You have the right to remain compliant - endowed by OUR creator
otherwise you can do us a favor - and CLEAN UP THIS HERE CRATER
You're expecting compassion from us? Who are you zoomin
We are the nation of technocratic stress hardened humans
Mesmerized - Hypnotized - aborbing lies - in through our eyes
We've broken ground on our biggest prison yet it's PLANET SIZED
our Network news guys are now on every night
so our mass media moguls can remind you how to do it riiiight

let's do it right
let's Step to the right. Slide. Slide.
Now step to the right. Now slide. Slide.
Now take a step to the right. Yup.
now... just take a step to the right
That's right. That's right. That's right.

Now step to the right. Slide. Slide.
Now step to the right. Slide. Slide.
Now take two steps to the right
And now... two more steps to the right

Now, while you imagine what a step to the left would be like
you just TAKE ANOTHER STEP TO THE RIGHT
