lyrics

Labeled clothes, diamond rings, act like superstars
Everything that we want we are able to get
No matter how rare we always get a share of that
Live a jetset life and in the fast lane
Give a damn about substance or what will remain
Never question ourselves or the way we behave
Might think about it when we jump into our grave
Oh by then it will be too late to really feel what we got stored in our hearts
As we are on a misled way itʻs kinda hard to find out where to start
Truth and sense is buried in our mind in a place nobody knows
With our spirit full of haze we donʻt know where to go

We just work and we workin
Seven days a week we are fighting
Never make this life worth a living
Cannot find no peace to give loving

We start them wars, fight, pretend we bring peace to this world
Call it freedom but donʻt know what itʻs worth
Oppress the people and tell them the way they should live
Ignorance is the only thing weʻre able to give
Laugh at folks who donʻt share our point of view
Insist our God is the only one who tells the truth
Close our hearts before we start to speak
By being blind we never find what we seek
Arrogant to think we rule this world
But donʻt respect those who been here first
We squeeze and we squeeze all the wells til they dry
And quiet content to live with this lie
Pollute the spirit of our youths
Mislead while they grow
Our hands dipped in blood
Weʻve realesed a monster but donʻt know to stop

Conversation full of words but say nothing at all
Moves are meaningless and have no soul
Tables are set the hunger still remains
Nights are sleepness and full of fears
Oh Lord will we face another day

We just work and we workin
