Capital Will Kill You

Chris Good
Language: English



In Ludlow, Colorado when the miners went on strike,
Families set camp at the temporary site.
The governor called the National Guard and they rolled into town.
They set up machine guns and mowed those families down

They didn't teach you that in school
Where they don't discuss the rule
Capital will kill you if you get in their way.
If you're not serving wealth,
Then you best protect yourself.
Cuz capital will kill you if you get in their way.

12-year old Iqbal Masih spent his life as a slave
In a Pakistani carpet plant, working night and day.
In 1992 he finally broke free.
Then he was killed for speaking on American TV.

They didn't teach you that in school
Where they don't discuss the rule
Capital will kill you if you get in their way.
If you're not serving wealth,
Then you best protect yourself.
Cuz capital will kill you if you get in their way.

From Kent State to Karen Silkwood and the Tyson Chicken fire,
Around the world, from China to Chile,
They know life is cheap when investment's on the brink.
Capital will kill you if you get in their way.

They didn't teach you that in school
Where they don't discuss the rule
Capital will kill you if you get in their way.
If you're not serving wealth,
Then you best protect yourself.
Cuz capital will kill you if you get in their way.

In an automated, high-tech world, you've got to be trained,
To add much to the bottom line that has your boss's name.
We cut out the safety net, because what's a person worth?
If you can't make me money, then why are you on earth?

They didn't teach you that in school
Where they don't discuss the rule
Capital will kill you if you get in their way.
If you're not serving wealth,
Then you best protect yourself.
Cuz capital will kill you if you get in their way.
