    Gross Income

    80% of the entire global wealth
    Is owned by 15% of the global population

    Never before in the annals of human history
    Has so much been owed
    To so many
    By so few

    The economy is collapsing
    All around us
    People that we see
    On the streets and suffering

    The system setting ready for imploding
    How did this come to be
    That the poor and the ordinary
    Are being pushed further into poverty

    Kids are going hungry
    Now itís not just a problem for the third world
    Weíre all beginning to see
    What itís like to live with prosperities tourniquet

    But thereís fat man in a big fat car
    Sucking on a big fat cigar
    And he doesnít give a damn who you are
    And thereís a house on a big fat hill
    Where he sits sucking on a big fat world
    A multi million construction of luxury

    Yes his toes are always warm
    Sits there in couldn't care-less complacency
    Big fat belly always full
    Swimming pool is always cool
    No heís not part of whatís going on
    Sits there with a big fat grin
    Plugged into the profiteering
    Bloodsucker of capitalism

    And thereís a mother with a hungry baby
    Her husband lost his job just this Monday
    Heís out there on the porch staring at the ground
    Because there is no work to be found

    He was cut back to save the gross income
    And the profitable wages of a corporation
    So the managing director
    Could still take his two-month holiday in the sun

    No itís not his stomach that is empty
    Why should he care he is wealthy
    Big fat man in other peoples clothes
    And walking around in other peoples shoes
    Not his concern that the people on the streets
    Havenít got enough to eat
    He just wants to make sure the chrome stays polished
    On his fleet of cars

    We all saw it coming
    While we were all trying to live the dream
    In this capital culture of ego need
    Scrambling over each other
    To catch the drips
    From the big fat mans under exerted sweat

    These days we all have to worry
    Wonder how this crisis came to be
    Yup; itís all about the money and the slavery
    And the avarice and the greed
    Of the bloodsucking industry

    Never before in the annals of human history
    Has so much been owed
    To so many
    By so few
