PIE IN THE SKY  (Written by Winston Apple)

Uncle Sam's got better things to do than help the needy
He needs all the cash that he can borrow to subsidize the greedy

There may be pie in the sky waiting for us when we die
But there is plenty of pie right here, right now

"Just let us keep our piles of gold," the greedy bastards say
"and we'll let it trickle down on you, ringing in a brighter day.
There will be jobs created with our wealth.  We'll build new factories."
And they're not exactly lying, though the truth is plain to see
The brand new jobs will be in brand new factories 
That will all be built overseas

These men we're up against are not like you or me
They are greedy corporate bastards
You can see it in their eyes, they know they're ruining our lives
And they don't care, to them money's all that matters

They are the predators, we are the prey
We'll all be working for third world wages, if they get their way
But sooner or later there will come a Judgment Day
The tables will turn, it will be their turn to pay
For the crimes they've committed against humanity
For the sins they have visited upon you and me
The piper will get his pound of flesh 
From these greedy corporate bastards

There may be pie in the sky waiting for us when we die
But there is plenty of pie right here, right now
If we all play nice and share, divide it fair and square
There will be plenty of pie to go around down here
There is plenty of pie to go around

Bail-outs are for billionaires, Wall Street, bankers, CEOs
If you fall behind on your mortgage, they'll take away your home
