Addicted To Greed

The lights are on, but they’re not home

Their minds are not their own

Their heart sweats, their body shakes

Another million is what it takes

We can’t sleep, we can’t eat

There’s no doubt, we’re in deep

Our throats are tight, we can’t breathe

Another million is all they need

Whoa, they like to think that they’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It’s closer to the truth to say they can’t get enough

We’re gonna have to face it, they’re addicted to greed

We see the signs, but we don’t read

They’re runnin’ on addiction to greed

Our hearts beat, in double time

Another million, and they’ll be fine 

a one track mind

They can’t be saved

Oblivion is all they crave

If there’s some left for you

You don’t mind if you do

Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It’s closer to the truth to say we can’t get enough

You know we’re gonna have to face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, they’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, you’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it, we’re addicted to greed

You’re addicted to greed, you’re addicted to greed

The lights are on, but they’re not home

Your will is not your own

While workers sweat, and teeth grind

Another million and they’ll be fine

Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh yeah

It’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough

You know you’re gonna have to face it, you’re addicted to greed

Might as well face it
