Blue sky, devil eye
Cyanide, suicide
Double down, let it ride
Lose your money, bruise your pride

Easy came, easy went
Ghetto slums, tenements
Things look real, Old Testament
Blame it all on the president

The emperor's got brand new clothes
And everybody but him knows, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The emperor's got brand new jewels
Wake up soon, you silly fools, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
While liberty stands naked screaming in horror
The emperor raped her but we just ignore her
The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
Poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer

Youthanize, youth will rise
Scrutinize, truth from lies
Time to revolutionize
Organize, weaponize

Easy come, easy go
Think I'm movin' just a little bit too slow
Got front row tickets to the big freak show
Wait for the whole freakin' thing to blow

The emperor's got brand new clothes
And everybody but him knows, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The emperor's got brand new jewels
Wake up soon, you silly fools, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
While liberty stands naked screaming in horror
The emperor raped her but we just ignore her
The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
Poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer

Homicide, genocide
Victimize, paralyze
Empathize and analyze
Compromise and vandalize

Easy come, hard to take
Wide awake, the original fake
Find the heart, drive the stake
Wait for the whole freakin' thing to break

The emperor's got brand new clothes
And everybody but him knows, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The emperor's got brand new jewels
Wake up soon, you silly fools, he's naked
But you don't say a word

The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
While liberty stands naked screaming in horror
The emperor raped her but we just ignore her
The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer

The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
While liberty stands naked screaming in horror
The emperor raped her but we just ignore her
The rich, they get richer, the poor, they get poorer
Poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer, poorer
