How much do you pay for product what do you pay for hype.
How long will that purchase matter when that "push" falls from your sight.
If they sugar coat the poison it'll kill you quite the same.
Tune us in as consumers and anesthetize our brains.
We're too dumb to figure out that we all play the game and we're to blame.
Do we know what's fact or fiction do you really trust the news.
How much truth gets filtered out before it gets to you.
Diverting your attention from the problems here at home.
Sweep the homeless under the rug in our ghettos we disown.
Out of sight out of mind it's a method we condone reap what we've sown.
People fight for equality for their gender and their race.
They seek to blame each other for the problems that they face.
But when 20% of the country owns 80% of its wealth
it limits your opportunities to playing the hand that you're dealt.
Because money is what divides more than color or creed.
The middle class the poor and rich minority
and while they tear down homeless shelters to erect big strip mall chains
the gap between the rich and poor gets wider every day.
It doesn't matter what they say to you we're never gonna be the same.
