A Jazzy folk-rap slam on corporate culture. Wicked chord changes with a bass/sax/drum exchange fire.

lyrics

It's Your Motto
Out in the suburb, the foreman gives the word
And the orchard melts away
People in the city say ain't that a pity
When they drive out for the day
Somewhere down the line a banker gets rich
Kids in a private school
They get a feeling for wheeling and dealing
They learn that money rules

Chorus:
Under the ramp there's a homeless street camp
With the bags and the mats and the pigeons and rats
And you pray every day as you pass on your way
You won't be let go
And you follow the creed of the corporate greed It's your motto

You're right in the middle trying to answer the riddle
Getting caught in the squeeze
It's all about power, not the ivory tower
No room for truth or trees
Corporations gulp and the tabloid pulp barfs the latest rave
People bleed while executives feed on what downsizing saved

Chorus:
Under the ramp there's a homeless street camp
With the bags and the mats and the pigeons and rats
And you pray every day as you pass on your way
You won't be let go
And you follow the creed of the corporate greed It's your motto

Got Liberal guilt where your home is built
Go buy the homeless news
Or pick up your pen every now and then
For a charity that you choose
Ain't gonna change in the long range
'Till the Earth can't bear the toll
Of people's need and people's greed
With no will to control

Chorus: As Above
