lyrics

fingerprints on the window / smog stains on the door / this nightmarish scenario is industry's old whore / final warning leaflet / an ashtray overthrown / the stress of fifteen centuries culminating in one's soul / JUSTIFIED / INTERCONNECTED / THERE'S NO HOPE FOR ME / COME TO FIND / INTERCONNECTED / JUST CAN'T COPE WITH WHAT YOU SEE / NEW REAL LIFE / INTERCONNECTED / BUILT UPON SHALLOW GROUND / SCREAM AND FIGHT / INTERCONNECTED / TEAR IT FUCKING DOWN / last pay stub from a fortnight / the letter explained it all / brought in new technology / obsolete is what you're called / from a factory in china / to an office in LA / its stocks traded on wall street / it's seen financial gains / CHORUS / the courts ended in deadlock / the politicians were absolved / it's amazing how morality works when there's so much cash involved / the dynas- ties of power / the same US regal class / wallow in the fact that they can make their fortunes last / a drug dealer in Burma / a stock broker in Prague / our monetary system is a fat and bloated hog / a thousand different fuses / one global powder keg / its hard to withstand changes when you're missing both your legs.
