Anti-Flag Lyrics

14. The Consumer's Song

don't trust them as far as you can throw them 
because as strong as you may be you won't be able to move them an inch 
but you don't have to believe me go ahead and 
be the corporate stooge that they trained you to be and... 
then you'll see what you get for your loyalty! 

they call it "down sizing" but that's just a backhanded saying 
for the phrase: "we're gonna screw you, until you're down on your knees... 
and you better not try to complain 'cause there's another hundred stiffs like you, 
all who'd plead... 
"i'd kiss your ass just for a chance to be a whore to your company!!!" 

you see it every day, everywhere, on the t.v. screen 
each time a different face or family, but it's always the same 
"we worked here all our lives, gave them everything we had 
and now they say they're gonna move the factory, 
to a third world country where the labor is cheap." 

but the fact my friend that you don't see 
is the money you spend on the goods they make 
supports their methods of abuse on the third world scene 
and in your very own backyard, yes your country 

so i won't be the consumer that they want me to be 
because the goods i own, aren't going to set me free 
so i won't buy that crap, they want to sell me 
because the goods i own, won't set anyone free
