The Game Is Rigged

The captains of industry
Don’t care about you & me.
They’re only gonna’ bow down to the bottom line.
They say the country is a land of opportunity.
But they want it all for themselves.
The rest is just a lie.

It’s a rich man’s world.
We’re only living in it.
The game is rigged
The moment that you’re born.
It’s never easy.
You’re gonna’ face a fight at every step.
Your hopes are on lease
And your dreams are not your own.

He has Congress on his side;
The best friends that cash can buy.
If you thought you still had rights
Then you don’t understand.
You thought you might retire
After 30 years on the line.
But Wall Street played a reckless game
With your pension plan.

He’s buying up newspapers and TV stations
To tell you to blame your problems on the poor.
He makes more in 10 minutes than you did last year,
But still he wants some more.
