So money made you mean
That's not how it's supposed to be
You're ready to challenge or defend
Yeah, for all the wrong reasons

How much do we really need?
A question if you have to ask
Just means what it means
The question that says everything

Right or left, it's all the same conspiracy
Just 'cause you ask doesn't make a difference to me

You could keep it all or give it away
But where does it come from in the first place?
Robbing Peter to pay me and I'll just be
Giving it back to Peter to feel free

And you have to fix everything that's broke
'Cause it'll never leave you alone
Reinvent the wheel, be the butt of a joke
Take the long road to charity

Yeah, right or left, it's all the same conspiracy
Robbing Peter to pay Paul
Or robbing Peter to pay me
Robbing Peter to pay Paul
Or robbing Peter to pay me

Yeah, it's just too hard, oh well, jump in
Forget about the sharks and swim
'Cause now you're one

Yeah, it's just too hard, oh well, jump in
Forget about the sharks and swim
'Cause now you're one
You can't deny it anymore

Where'd it come from?
Giving it back
Can't deny it anymore
It will never leave you alone
Take the long road to charity

Right or left, it's all the same conspiracy
Yeah, robbing Peter to pay Paul
Robbing Peter to pay me
Yeah, robbing Peter to pay Paul
Robbing Peter to pay me

Can't deny it anymore
