lyrics

Crimes, evil doing, negligence, transgression, trespass
Crimes, evil doing, negligence, transgression, trespass
Crimes, evil doing, negligence, transgression, trespass
Crimes!

Invasion, intrusion -- iniquity
Encroachment, violation -- unlawful entry
Subversive collusion -- iniquity
A corporate instigation -- unlawful entry

You fear-mongering evildoer -- iniquity
You inside man with the inside job -- unlawful entry
You government robber steal all the money -- iniquity
You muscle in and take all the oil -- unlawful entry

And you're a war mongering evildoer -- iniquity
You propagate military fear -- unlawful entry
You'll poison our food and poison our water -- iniquity
Making the rich man rich and the poor man poorer -- unlawful entry

With reprobate and profligate -- iniquity
You hotheaded instigator -- unlawful entry
So let's join arms at the gate -- iniquity
And take down all intimidater -- unlawful entry

You know the politician's a parasite -- iniquity
The corporate man is a parasite -- unlawful entry
All of the lobby men are the parasites -- iniquity
And the ruling class are the parasites -- unlawful entry

The corporate man is a parasite -- iniquity
And the lobby men are the parasites -- unlawful entry
And the political man is a parasite -- iniquity
And the billionaires are the parasites -- unlawful entry

Don't give power to the corrupted
They really only seek what they already have
In their towers carefully constructed
They're steeped inside their greed, they never love themselves
Compassion is our only evolution, we don't have far to go in reality
We just need to make some simple changes in our communities individually

Stop giving them money, take away all their control
Don't buy them power, all they care about is gold
Stop paying your taxes, break the bondage you're born into
The time has come to awaken, use of fear is how they control you
Stop giving them money, take away all their control
Don't buy them power, all they care about is gold
Stop paying your taxes, break the bondage you're born into
The time has come to awaken, use of fear is how they control you

Green paper slaves
Everyone in this room are green paper slaves
Green paper slaves
You, and you, and you, and me are green paper slaves
Green paper slaves
Poor men pay rich man debt we're green paper slaves
Green paper slaves
Buy things that keep you in chains green paper slaves
Green paper slaves
Even my mother is a green paper slave
Green paper slaves
This whole nation of people green paper slaves.
Green paper slaves
Throw down your shackles now you green paper slave
Green paper slaves
Stop paying taxes no more green paper slaves
