Common Dollar


I'll take it all in; let it consume

Every ounce of happy, every inch of me

This has nothing to do with me

I'm not affected by any of this


Manipulated by your dollars and cents

Because you lack any real sense


Sure, go ahead

Give it all up

Give it all up

All for the common dollar

Who really cares?

Who really cares?

Whether we have ears to hear it all?

Go ahead

Go ahead

Make me feel so goddamn guilty

Let me fear

Let me fear

That which you pretend to hide so well


Watch your T.V. and ignore

Every glare of anger, every scream from me

For I'm just being selfish me

I'm not breaking down at all


Taken aback, you cower behind

Your magazines, letting me unwind


Sure, go ahead

Give it all up

Give it all up

All for the common dollar

Who really cares?

Who really cares?

Whether we have ears to hear it all?

Go ahead

Go ahead

Make me feel so goddamn guilty

Let me fear

Let me fear

That which you pretend to hide so well


Cause it's all about the money

Green, silver, copper money

Who has time for emotions

When there's money to be made?


Sure, go ahead

Give it all up

Give it all up

All for the common dollar

Who really cares?

Who really cares?

Whether we have ears to hear it all?

Go ahead

Go ahead

Make me feel so goddamn guilty

Let me fear

Let me fear

That which you pretend to hide so well


Give it all up

Go ahead

Who really cares

Let me fear

That which you pretend to hide so well
