From the recording Road to Roam
Lead track on the 2015 Road to Roam EP
Written about the Occupy Wall Street Movement from the vantagepoint of a protester sitting on the steps of a Central Bank building. Lamenting about the transfer of wealth to the top 1%, and the rest of humanity to fend for itself.
IT’S CALLED GREED
By Seedless 10 Den c
Listen to this song, cause all can sing along, come huddle in
Just gender flip the page, it doesn’t matter, hey let’s juggle it…..
You know we talk aloud, enough to scream and shout, about the greed that’s taking over the world, and even though we see all this hypocrisy, we still allow the small elite to rule us
Never thought I would (see the day)
when the people and (all our races)
becoming slaves again without force!
All the people (pushed aside), we use our music (to unhide) the very ones who want to oppress us more, cause they want more, yeah they want more, they want more……
So, now our children see! Examples! You and me! How we’re getting by, living day by day. The greed, that makes us eat the info on the screen, not realizing THAT is how they feed us. All the people (in the way) seem to vanish (in the haze) of inquisition without justice.
All the action (trickles round),
not the way the news goes down
But you’re not begging? No?
Oh no, but YOU need (more)!
You need more, you need more, more, more!
You need more!!
And It’s Called Greed! You got your cash stocks and bonds, yo and all of those credit cards
How much do you need before you make all your greed trickle all the way down to me?
You always seem to take advantage…..
Our people can’t even
make a living wage!
Hey! We know you’re lining your pockets
You say don’t take it personally,
and all that I know is it’s called greed……
Yo! What did you do
with all of our money?
Because it sure seems to us
you all think it’s funny!
So, whatever happened to our land
of milk and honey? Yeah, yeah ……
And It’s Called Greed!
You got your cash, your stocks, and bonds
yeah and all of those credit cards.
Now how much do you need
before you make all your greed trickle all the way down to me?
It’s Called Greed? It’s Called Greed…..hey!
Now how much do you need before you make all your greed trickle all the way down to me……..
