lyrics

simple pleasures
dilute our compassion
deny our conviction
it's not who we should set out to be
no one cares if no one
cares to be thoughtful
success is our gospel
regardless of what we could achieve

we've marched and we've murdered to be pressed to this
our hearts have deserted us to senselessness
that marks the demise of what we could have become
if we knew what it was to be human

nobody gives a fuck
so sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up
if it's up to me then you're fucked
collect the dollar and pass the buck

we have followed the path of a prophet
collecting a profit
it's higher than the deepest belief
but tomorrow we see we cannot stop it
it skyrockets
and now we're sinking into the deep

there is no redemption it's a matter of me
it gets me attention and i'm flattered to be
a fucking pompous bottom feeding piece of our legacy
i will prosper through the demise of my brothers

nobody left to save corruption's taken our souls
we've stumbled to a grave and bury bodies in gold
this is the greatest tragedy that's ever been told
the story of a race that dies so painfully slow

your dollars don't make sense
blood on the hands of dead presidents

nobody gives a fuck
so sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up
if it's up to me then you're fucked
collect the dollar and pass the buck
