Lyrics
can't stand the news
It's always the same old song
Another corporate scandal
Another story of bad gone wrong
Another corporate bailout
Another piece of the pie
It's the best democracy money can buy

They rigged the elections
And only millionaires can play
And you've got to be cynical
You got to look into the camera and say
"I'm serving the public"
When you know it's a corporate lie
But it's the best...

Yeah there they go
Fighting for oil
'Cause there the profits lie
Beneath that foreign soil
And they don't know what they'll do
When the wells run dry
But it's the best...

They're filling the prisons
Their latest industry
Which lines their pockets
And helps us all be free
'Cause you gotta do something with the unemployed
If they won't move to Shanghai
And it's the best...

They're patenting life
Selling our genes
They would patent oxygen
If they had the means
They'll patent their drugs
And some will get you high
And it's the best...

But we've got two parties
Maybe someday we'll have three
Maybe Tweedledumber
Tweedledum and Tweedledee
But one thing's fairly certain
It won't be you or I
'Cause it's the best...

And when it's finished
And they've finally achieved
The most corporate dollar-ocracy
That could ever be believed
The Martians will come to visit our graves
And when they go back to the sky
They'll say it was the best...
