Track Name: Greed Runs the Clock
Greed runs the clock
Greed runs the clock
Greed runs the clock
So we're running out of time
There's no reason There's no reason

Greed runs the clock
Greed runs the clock
Greed runs the clock
So we're running out of time

We're running out of time
We're running out of time
We're running out of time

In a gadda dada vida,
the serpent grows.
At 1600 Penssylvania,
Wall Street Laughs.
Track Name: We Shall Not Be Moved
We shall not, we shall not be moved
We shall not, we shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved!

Defend the first amendment
We shall not be moved!
Defend the Bill of Rights!
We shall not be moved!
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved!

So stop the riot police
We shall not be moved!
And put away their tear gas!
We shall not be moved!
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall not be moved!

We shall not, we shall not be moved
We shall not, we shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's standing by the water
We shall never be moved!
Track Name: Johnson!!!
In the name of profits
and progress too
They're stealing secrets
from the bare feet

They're pirates
and profiteers!

In the name of profits
and more TV
They're twisting facts
ignoring pleas

In the name of profits
and SUVs
They're pumping poison
to the atmosphere

They're pirates
and profiteers

They're here today,
we're gone tomorrow
Track Name: Consumer Society
I live in a dream
That's not my own
And all the silly things
I'd like to own
Some ideals
Come straight out of TV ads
I'm always so caught up
Caught in the latest fads

You want as many possessions
As you can possess
You want so many possessions
You're becoming possessed

Gucci, Glass by Tiffany
The things you buy won't set you free
Calvin Klein, Riunite on Ice
Your lifestyle has more style than life
Robert Palmer on CD
Don't you see the trap you're in
Plenty of things to take to your tomb
You're not a consumer- you're being consumed

Cause I'm trapped in this dream
That's not my own
And all these useless things
I can't help but own
My behavior
Designed by those TV ads
Is all designed
To turn my brain into crap

I want as many possessions
As I can possess
I want so many possessions
I'm becoming possessed
