Does money buy you true happiness?
Does money buy you true happiness?

Welcome to the world of commerce and extreme greed

Wrapped in a $100 bill smile of pretend professionalism

Nothing in this world was full of any type of tact

An environment full of drugs, alcohol and cold comforts

Where everything was made nothing but money and cheap lies

Looking in the mirror where the image appearing back didn't match up

Didn't resemble the vision imprinted in the mind as a vison of success

Just a Wall Street shark in a dark blue Armani suit on the hunt for a killer deal

One that would make Gordon Gecko proud and all Yuppies lining up for tips

Like children stalking the Good Humor Man for the latest ice cream treat

Let the good times roll in spades as the Mercedes and Champagne multiply

Unaware of what was beneath the surface of high yields on the Stock Exchange

Ignoring the red velvet curtain on society's stage falling down slowly

Inch by inch revealing the human mirage dressed in expensive wolf furs

Don't alert PETA because they always come prepared with cans of red paint

What the masses don't know is this seemingly innocent predator is much more

Than a ravenous hunter looking for a slew willing participants

Looking to drain their wallets and safety deposit boxes of all valuables

Say goodbye to your Mercedes S Class and accept the 10 year old Honda

Waiting in the wings to take once the rose colored glasses have broken

Start drinking Sparkling Cider instead when reality comes knocking

In the form of the IRS and the Feds with an army to take away your valuables

Beware of the smooth talker wearing $800 shoes and the slicked back hair

A product of the bygone 80s and an even smoother criminal

Robbing the rich and the poor alike with equal measure

Caring nothing about the casualties on both sides of the financial district

Time to punch out his time card once and for all

Putting away the Armani for an orange jumpsuit is the only cure

For the common working monster with an 80 hour work week

And an appetite for Axel Rose level type of destruction

It's time to say "You're fired" and mean it

Focus on the reality of the economy and not the fantasies of the rich and empty

You'll be better prepared to see the charlatans walking down the street
