lyrics

The first thing they won’t tell you is the national debt
Is just the money that’s in your pocket.
That’s how they scare you into thinking that
austerity is the means and not the end.

It’s no conspiracy.
It’s just the same two fucking things
that have always separated the haves from the rest:
greed and selfishness.

The second thing they sure as shit don’t want you realizing:
profit margin is just a nicer way of saying
someone’s being exploited. And if you're not sure who,
it’s probably you.

It’s no conspiracy.
It’s just the same two fucking things
that have always separated the haves from the rest:
greed and selfishness.

Our forefathers didn’t want to pay the going rate for wood and steel
so they built a whole damn nation from the bones of oppressed people.
Now we sit here and we wonder why it’s all falling apart,
well the answer’s simple really: you always get what you pay for!

It’s no conspiracy
It’s just the same two fucking things
that have always doomed humanity:
selfishness and greed.

about

Total Massacre Los Angeles, California

“Total Massacre have a directness and simplicity that is kind of a lost art these days; it was a
hallmark of the punk scene back in the 1980’s and is what gave the music of that era the
immediacy that inspired young people to engage in acts of resistance to fascism. We need more
of that.”
– Chris Hannah, Propagandhi.
