lyrics

I’ve got no spine.
I don’t sleep, I just get high,
sit down, and make you work.

I joined the DSA ‘cause I wanna get laid.
It’s not exploitation if you don’t get paid.
I want a landlord in the sheets, indentured servant in the streets;
internal contradictions are good for business.

But my computer thinks you’re strange.
The change in your pocket wasn’t enough to pay my rent;
so you’ll sleep on the train.
The new Mussolini’s gonna get it running on time.

How can I cash in on this great train?
I wanna move up!

I’ve got no spine.
I don’t breathe, I just gentrify,
and keep turning a blind eye.

She can’t go to class ‘cause her teacher is an octopus,
she can’t find a job ‘cause the means are owned by capitalists,
can’t even fall asleep ‘cause there’s bugs in her mattress,
but she could make a killing in the weapons business!

It’s a lucrative one,
‘cause what kind of loser doesn’t wanna buy a gun
and another one, and another one?
A gun to the head keeps the drummer playing on time.

Where could you find a freer market than this?
I wanna get rich!

I’ve got no spine.
I don’t eat, I just get by,
and keep riding this dead horse.

I’m a TV news anchor, I talk a lot of bullshit.
Got no moral compass, so I’m rolling in it.
I take the struggles of the people, and I spin them around
so that the People stay subservient to corporate interests.

But it’s not so easy
to control your mind when you wanna be free.
I don’t see why you won’t just listen to me;
don’t you know I’m the one who keeps the drone bombs dropping on time?

When can I get the attention I crave?
I wanna be a star!

I’ve got no spine;
I look good, I drink fine wine,
and get ready for the end times.
