Lyrics

Dear 1%

You got one product for your skin
And another for your hair
Oh this culture keeps us locked up
Tells us to keep ourselves bare

I won’t fall for any of that no
I’ll no longer get in line
I’ll reclaim my body
Because it’s always been mine

Well you can keep your poisoned produce
You can keep it on the shelves
I reject a system designed to deconstruct my health

I’ve seen the local farmer
Forced to sell off all his land
While consumer dollars
Go to factories on foreign sands

I’m gonna spend all my money on myself
Make my purchase power spread the wealth

If you go to the doctor
Well they’ll prescribe you with a pill
We buy into a system
Reliant on keeping us all ill

Social perception
Says that medicine ain’t drugs
But corporate pushers are much worse
Than who they call street thugs

I’m gonna spend all my money on myself
Make my purchase power spread the wealth

Corporate crime ain’t recognized
It don’t even go to trial
Greased money makes the system clean
And politicians smile

Meanwhile on the other side
A mother and her child
Can’t afford to eat tonight
While the bloated dine in style

I’m gonna spend all my money on myself
Make my purchase power spread the wealth

Bridge
We don’t wanna slow down
We don’t wanna look back
We’re still livin’ the same way
While under attack

But if we don’t slow down
And if we don’t look back
We’ll be livin’ the same way
Dreamin’ the same dreams
Stuck in the past

So let's spend all our money on ourselves
Make our purchase power spread the wealth
Spend all my money on ourselves
