Reach Up 05:08
Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: Reach Up [Chorus] ( People ), it’s time to unite Time to reach up and defend all our rights ( We know ), there’s so many people in pain It’s time to reach up, time to create a change ( People ), it’s time that we speak Time to reach up and demand world peace ( We know ), that we’ve all got to believe We’ve got to reach up if we want to be free [Verse One] The top one percent of the population Owns forty percent of the wealth Over thirty thousand children die every day In poverty from lack of health This wealth gap keeps increasing between rich and poor There’s more slavery now than ever before Although democracy’s supposed to be equal Government is controlled by a small group of people Bankers and corporations are in charge They finance presidents who then help them make laws All the candidates are really pre-selected So it doesn’t matter which party ends up elected Central banks control the money supply The crazy thing is that they’re all privatized Every dollar that’s printed and ever exists Is a loan that we need to pay back with interest The fractional reserve system’s a scam That keeps the whole nation in debt and that’s the plan This is happening across the whole entire World, it only leads to global empire The U.S. uses the world bank and I.M.F. To pay off politicians and put countries in debt That debt’s so big, they can never repay So they’re forced to sell all their resources as a trade At the end of the day, it’s all nothing more than Economic bribery and extortion So more and more people are becoming desperate Potential terrorists that can be arrested And your home can be searched now without a warrant You can be detained indefinitely and tortured These laws are designed to destroy our liberties So when we fight back it limits our abilities [Chorus] ( People ), it’s time to unite Time to reach up and defend all our rights ( We know ), there’s so many people in pain It’s time to reach up, time to create a change ( People ), it’s time that we speak Time to reach up and demand world peace ( We know ), that we’ve all got to believe We’ve got to reach up if we want to be free [Verse Two] We live in a system based on profit Regardless of what the environmental cost is So in this society, monetary gain Always comes first before people’s well being Now think about the theory of supply and demand Everything is worth more the less of it that’s on hand If the goal’s to make money by any means It makes sense to deny people of what they need In reality, energy is abundant There’s no need for anyone to die of hunger Everyone on earth could be housed if we wanted But technology that could help isn’t funded Instead businesses that control market share Purposely keep all our resources scarce People are forced to fight, cheat or lie Cuz’ there’s not enough money for us all to survive When greed and corruption is rewarded It means our whole value system is distorted We need to think critically, change our perception Almost everything we’ve been told is a deception For centuries, things like race and religion Have been used to keep us focused on division We’ve been conditioned to see ourselves as different From everything else and that’s the point were missing Humans are trained to look at disparities That are trivial compared to our similarities And not just with people, were talking about Completely detaching from nature itself Our planet’s a system that’s interconnected Everything we do, something else is affected Without animals, elements or plants We can’t survive on this earth, humans have no chance So look at everything as an extension of you Atomically were all the same it’s just a different world view And the faster this realization spreads The better off the world will be moving ahead [Chorus x 2]

The Truth Is 04:18
Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: The Truth Is [Chorus] The truth is that we need To open up our eyes so that we start to see All of the lies that we were told and we believed Because the time has come to face reality And work together for the sake of liberty So that our future generation can be free WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND SEE THAT THE TRUTH IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE [Verse One] Truth is, the Real reason for war is Motivated by money and corporate interest Rwanda didn’t have oil, that’s why The world turned a blind eye during its genocide Truth is, corporations can donate An unlimited amount of money to a candidate Democrats and Republicans are bought and paid So Government does whatever corporations say Truth is the President doesn’t run the country The people in charge are those who control the money So The Federal Reserve is really more powerful Than the U.S. Government and they’re running the show The truth is, That Goldman Sachs Sold sub-prime mortgages they knew were bad they also profited by betting they’d all fail So they’d win either way and no one went to jail Truth is, the financial crisis ain’t solved It was a big ponzi scheme, an inside job Where taxpayers bailed out the banks who caused It in the first place and now, they’re still in charge Truth is, money is created from debt If all debt was repaid there’d be no money left But loans that are made have interest attached That doesn’t exist so we can’t pay it back Truth is, our banking system’s a trap That leads to bankruptcy and collapse It’s why the States are fifty trillion in the hole And this crisis is spreading all around the globe Truth is, a crash is inevitable Cuz’ our growing debt must be matched in the real world Through the use of resources, so infinite growth On a finite planet is impossible [Chorus] The truth is that we need To open up our eyes so that we start to see All of the lies that we were told and we believed Because the time has come to face reality And work together for the sake of liberty So that our future generation can be free WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND SEE THAT THE TRUTH IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE [Verse Two] Truth is, The C.I.A. Has a history of smuggling drugs into the States Their profits are then laundered through banks In order to help them secretly operate Cuz’ the truth is, they’ve been involved In things that should make people appalled Like mind control experiments on soldiers To alter their behavior with drugs and hypnosis Truth is, Nazi’s were the first to try Putting fluoride into the nation’s water supply To dumb people down and control what they think And now it’s in almost all the water that we drink Truth is, there’s a chemical company Called Monsanto controlling the food we eat By transforming everything genetically And then forcing everyone to only use their seeds Truth is, that the medical industry Is big business with millions of employees the last thing it wants is a cure for cancer Cuz’ they’d lose trillions if there was ever an answer Truth is, cures for cancer exist Just look up Dr. Burzynski in Texas Who’s been curing people with tumors for years The F.D.A. and the government don’t want you to hear Truth is, you can’t trust the TV News It’s pre-filtered to distract and confuse All the outlets are owned by only five companies So It’s impossible to ever get news objectively Cuz’ the truth is, people need to wake up And expose how our whole system is corrupt And if you think I’m wrong, go ahead try to stump me Lets see you write a song as smart as this to debunk me [Chorus] The truth is that we need To open up our eyes so that we start to see All of the lies that we were told and we believed Because the time has come to face reality And work together for the sake of liberty So that our future generation can be free WE NEED TO WAKE UP AND SEE THAT THE TRUTH IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS TO BE

Technology 04:02
Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: Technology [Chorus x 2] It’s about awareness, education Spreading knowledge and information To everyone through communication So we understand what were facing [Verse One] What we think is true today Will be updated tomorrow, the only constant is change Human understanding is always emerging And developing with the more that were learning And the main factor behind Almost every advancement that’s improved our lives Is technology, derived from science What’s deemed possible, we constantly defy it From thinking that our planet was flat To the sun revolving around the earth as fact And believing the cause of illness were demons To the wonders of modern medicine that were seeing Think back to the electric light To when the Wright brothers airplane first took flight To penicillin, to the cellular phone To internet access in millions of homes Today, what we consider commonplace Would have been unimaginable in ancient days So one thing we can assume for sure There will be things we can’t even fathom in the future Technology doesn’t seem to slow It can lead us on a path of continuous growth And currently the tools that we have available Could transform humanity in ways you couldn’t even know Into a world that’s balanced and humane People are free and the environment’s sustained The only way this will happen is if we work Together, for the benefit of everyone on this earth [Chorus x 2] It’s about awareness, education Spreading knowledge and information To everyone through communication So we understand what were facing [Verse Two] Free market economist Adam Smith Claimed prosperity came from self-interest As the act of competition would provide People with the motivation to survive However, what he forgot to see Is this type of system will always lead To social stratification and abuse Corruption and power in the hands of a few It’s dangerous, this is our reality And in society the dominant mentality When it pays to be selfish and damage the planet Ethics and honesty are a disadvantage If a product is rare, the price will rise Lower the supply, profits will be high That’s why it’s beneficial for businesses to lie To manipulate the value of the products they provide So in order to make money, Oil companies Limit their production deliberately The last thing they want is alternative energies That are cheap and could make their industry obsolete And so the public has no clue As to what our real possibilities include With geothermal power, solar, wind and wave There’s no need to ever burn fossil fuels again There’s no reason why every car on the road At the moment couldn’t be electrical We actually do have total energy Without the need for pollution by any means And we also possess the technology That could enable us to feed every single human being And benefit all of humanity But these developments are held back purposely The only way this establishment will change Is if we refuse to participate And stop supporting a system that’s unequal ‘Til we transfer the power to the will of the people [Chorus x 2] It’s about awareness, education Spreading knowledge and information To everyone through communication So we understand what were facing

Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: The Facts of War Part 2 [Verse One: Cale Sampson] In a world dominated by capitalism The fact is war’s not about nationalism Or what television tells you to believe in It ain’t about security, it’s not about freedom It’s about conquering resources Expanding an empire that’s corporate So industrial profits remain hoarded A few rich elite people are rewarded These individuals don’t report To the government cuz’ it’s a revolving door Where laws and policies are basically forged To benefit the rich, while the poor are ignored And to understand this, is important Out of war, a small group makes a fortune Regardless of it’s inhumanity It’s actually wanted by industry Cuz’ it’s the most lucrative thing that can happen And international bankers always cash in Forcing countries to borrow more And more money, just to support their wars The bottom line is, more profit is made The longer that a war can be sustained They’re supposed to be long and go on and on And believe it or not, they’re not meant to be won Look at history, you’ll see events are staged Within the government, than someone else is blamed Public perception is manipulated To support agendas that before we were against This is all done through the mass media Cuz’ people believe what TV feeds to us There’s no real enemy in a war on terror So what that means is it can go on forever [Chorus] ( Martin Luther King ) Men do not easily assume the task Of opposing their government’s policy Especially in time of war ( John F. Kennedy ) I am asking your help For the tremendous task Of informing and alerting the American people ( Ron Paul ) What if war and preparation for war is a racket What if the American people woke up and understood That the official reasons for going to war Are almost always based on lies and promoted by war propaganda In order to serve special interests [Verse Two: Cale Sampson] At the time that World War 2 began Franklin Roosevelt was the U.S. President And his family were bankers who wanted in the war Cuz’ for them, nothing else could make them profit more The plan was to provoke the Japanese To fire the first shot and become the enemy So Roosevelt did everything he could to spark anger Supporting China, Japan’s enemy neighbor And several days before Pearl Harbor was hit The President was told of oncoming battleships By Australian intelligence, but he ignored this Resulting in the death of twenty-four hundred soldiers Eighty percent of the public was against Going to war, just before this event Then one million men volunteered for action This was no sneak attack, it was allowed to happen And when the Vietnam War began The President of the States was Lyndon Johnson Again, the U.S. knew it could make a profit If they had an excuse to enter the conflict In Nineteen Sixty-Four they alleged Vietnamese boats attacked two U.S. ships This apparently occurred in the Gulf of Tonkin It’s the reason why their military was called in There’s one problem however Secretary of Defense Robert Mcnamara Spoke out years later, and stated This attack never occurred in the first place, it Was a mistake, it was a complete lie Over three million people died And this is not a conspiracy thing, they’re trying to hide You can read it for yourself, it’s all declassified [Chorus] ( George W. Bush ) Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists ( George W. Bush ) Of course were after Saddam Hussein, I mean uh Bin Laden ( George W. Bush ) You know one of the hardest parts of my job Is to connect Iraq to the War on Terror ( Dick Cheney ) There is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction ( Donald Rumsfeld ) We know where they are They’re in the area around uh Tikrit and Baghdad ( George W. Bush ) The main reason we went into Iraq At the time was we thought he had weapons of mass destruction Turns out, he didn’t ( George W. Bush ) What did Iraq have to do with what ( Reporter ) The attack on the World Trade Centre ( George W. Bush ) Nothing [Verse Three: Cale Sampson] Did you know, in order to gain power Hitler burned down his own parliament tower Then he blamed terrorists for the attack And within weeks passed the enabling act This destroyed the German constitution When it came to rights, people had to lose them And support his program of war and tyranny All deemed necessary for homeland security Sounds like something else It’s interesting how history repeats itself Makes you wonder, if 9/11 may have been planned To jumpstart wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Terrorism’s not the threat That were led to believe, it won’t cause our death It’s just propaganda used to make you afraid So the government can go to war and take our rights away Dick Cheney the Vice President Was also the CEO of Halliburton And that’s the same company that got contracts Worth billions of dollars to rebuild Iraq This is why the Middle East was invaded So they could steal the oil and dominate it Establish permanent military bases To be used against other oil bearing nations In terms of profit, for the elite See death and destruction’s a positive thing And a global monopoly’s what they seek Over the energy resources that we all need It’s no different than the Greeks and Romans The British, the French, everyone else before them This is an empire, based on greed And the majority of us still have no idea [Chorus ( Outro )] ( George Carlin ) I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners The big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions Forget the politicians Politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice You don’t, You have no choice, You have owners They own everything They own all the important land They own and control the corporations And they own all the big media companies So they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying To get what they want Well we know what they want They want more for themselves and less for everybody else But I’ll tell you what they don’t want They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking They don’t want well informed, well educated people, capable of critical thinking They’re not interested in that That doesn’t help them, that’s against their interest That’s right [Audience applauds]

Evolve 04:45
Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: Evolve [Chorus] Changes are coming to our lives We can’t avoid them even if we try So pay attention, we need to realize What’s going on if we’re going to survive Were at a point in the history of time Where we all have to put differences aside And choose to either evolve or we could die The choice is up to us all now to decide [Verse One] I’m like a grade twelve who’s trapped in grade two Feeling like I’m a hundred steps ahead of these fools They only talk goo-goo-ga-ga, eating baby food About as smart as the square root of my I.Q. Open your eyes, it’s like the whole world’s gone dumb And thinks the answer to four plus four equals one So when I’m like can’t you see the answer is eight People stare at me, with a blank look on their face And just laugh trying to make it seem like I’m the weirdo Cuz’ their ability to think critically is zero Just blindly accepting everything they’re told By a system that’s designed just to keep us controlled And the time has come now, to burst your bubbles I don’t care anymore, if it gets me in trouble When there’s people dying, denial’s no excuse You shouldn’t turn a blind eye, once you know the truth And when money, is the main reward So we can buy material things others can’t afford To feel better about our self worth with more Our mentality is dysfunctional to the core So Remember, every single dollar you gain Comes from the expense of another human being Suffering, somewhere else, and what’s unhealthy Is because we don’t see them, we don’t feel guilty To Selfish men who don’t give a damn Show some empathy for your fellow woman and man Wake up, grow up and get some courage Cuz’ If you don’t, it’ll be your own kids who perish The reality is, were on a sinking ship Just like the titanic and the iceberg’s been hit So while most people stand around in shock I’m trying to build some lifeboats and start paddling off (Because) [Chorus] Changes are coming to our lives We can’t avoid them even if we try So pay attention, we need to realize What’s going on if we’re going to survive Were at a point in the history of time Where we all have to put differences aside And choose to either evolve or we could die The choice is up to us all now to decide [Verse Two] It’s like the population has become Zombies hypnotized in a trance and numb With no clue, a paradigm shift’s begun It ain’t cool anymore to be stupid and dumb Defining yourself off what you look like Or your social status is not the meaning of life Quit following the herd, like a flock of sheep And stop being so concerned, about what other people think Cuz’ it ain’t just my words that are scary to y’all It’s the combination of intelligence with balls While I’m doing this for real, you’re sitting on your couch Don’t just follow me, you need to be a leader for yourself What happened to being a man, standing proud Now the world’s full of chickens and sell out cowards And you know, our morality has become lost When real heroes like Nikola Tesla are forgot If you don’t believe your freedom is under attack Look at the NDAA and the Patriot Act There’s millions of people that are now in prison Cuz’ the industry profits with the more that are in them You probably don’t even know, that oil is used In almost every single product that we consume And we’re running out of it now rapidly Were past the peak and with that comes catastrophe We need to grow our own food, organically Learn to the live off the land, start saving seeds Prepare yourself mentally, stay ahead of the game Because it’s better to be ready than a second too late I’ll spell it out for you then connect the dots There’s way too many people living under a rock Listen I’m not doing this for any fortune or fame I’m just trying to get the message out to you, before it’s too late ( Because ) [Chorus] Changes are coming to our lives We can’t avoid them even if we try So pay attention, we need to realize What’s going on if we’re going to survive Were at a point in the history of time Where we all have to put differences aside And choose to either evolve or we could die The choice is up to us all now to decide

Artist: Cale Sampson Feat. Lori Nuic Album: The Big Picture Song: Jamie’s Song [Chorus: Lori Nuic] Miracles come true When you least expect them One might happen to you Don’t give up on love [Verse One: Cale Sampson] I broke up with a girl, were no longer together I’m contemplating, quitting music forever Used to think it was my destiny, writing these songs Maybe I’ve just been lying to myself all along People say I’m the sickest MC they’ve ever seen But I’m taking too long to get my album released It’s not cheap, that’s why I keep going into debt Trying to follow my dreams, and now my girlfriend left So I’m at my dad’s place, sleeping on the floor Feeling depressed, the only place I can afford I should just conform and be like more of my friends Man I’m getting too old to be starting over again Trying to reverse my luck, what can I tell ya It’s like life’s raining on me and I got no umbrella And I feel cornered, I’m against the ropes My only choice is to fight through and have a little hope I’ve been walking with my head down, practically blind Missing opportunities that were passing me by Once you lift your head up, a new world appears That you couldn’t see before and everything becomes clear If you stay strong through the darkness comes light That’s what happened to me, I met the love of my life When I wasn’t expecting, a miracle occurred Her name is Jamie and this song is for her [Chorus: Lori Nuic] Miracles come true When you least expect them One might happen to you Don’t give up on love [Verse Two: Cale Sampson] Now everything’s gotten better, I moved in with my girl Life is great, feels like I’m on top of the world Cuz’ the power of love defies obstacles And it can make you believe anything is possible And there’s nothing, we can’t achieve together Like a team that just keeps getting stronger than ever She’s down with the music, not consumed by wealth And knows pursuing your dreams is what life is all about So then I finally released my album Couldn’t believe it, a sold out show was the outcome Had to pinch myself to make sure it was true Man it’s amazing what a positive attitude can do That’s why I smile when I go to bed at night Sometimes I can’t fall asleep, I feel great about my life You can work towards your goals on your own and by yourself But it’s more fulfilling when you can share them with someone else I won’t forget driving that four wheeler With Jamie on my back through the hills in Costa Rica Or travelling to Paris, Lisbon, Venice There’s many more to come, all our adventures are endless Were meant for each other, like two soul mates And the spark will still be there at the end of our days Beauty’s only skin deep, so when our looks fade away I’ll still be reading poems to her when I’m old and I’m gray And I wrote this one here, to inspire all those Who’s hearts have been broken, who are losing their hope When you least expect it, a miracle can come true Don’t ever give up on love, cuz’ this song is for you [Chorus: Lori Nuic] Miracles come true When you least expect them One might happen to you Don’t give up on love

Artist: Cale Sampson feat. Rupert Harvey Album: The Big Picture Song: Conscious Revolution [Verse One - Cale Sampson] Our entire universe is a giant organism Just like a human being it’s alive and living With awareness of itself, everything within it Is made up of energy and that’s what consciousness is So every single person, in existence Are expressions of this conscious energy that are different Limited to five senses, only able to perceive A very narrow bandwidth of this reality What you see in the mirror is not actually you It’s an illusion of perception, that gets you confused Cuz’ what appears to be solid and what atoms make Is really ninety-nine point nine-nine empty space Were vessels, consciousness uses as tools To observe our free will and gather knowledge through And I know this probably sounds esoteric to you But quantum physics has proven that it’s actually true [Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey] We are Powerful, with unlimited potential When were in a state Of love ( A Conscious Revolution ) [Verse Two – Cale Sampson] The greatest discovery of planet earth Is it has a consciousness, governed by the universe And it has it’s own pulse, it’s own heartbeat That it shares with all biological living things By disseminating down through waves and frequencies Which eventually converge in the brains of human beings And now science has bridged the gap That connects the physical and spiritual at last Everyone has a surrounding field of energy Our hearts generate electromagnetically So the thoughts and emotions, we feel within Shape the outer physical reality that were in This information has been known for ages And was commonly taught by the shamans and sages Back in pre-historic ancient civilizations By the Hopi, Apache and Cherokee natives And now a new awareness has taken Place as more and more people start to awaken Consciousness is evolving, we need to embrace it Stay centred in love, there’s nothing to be afraid of [Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey] We are Powerful, with unlimited potential When were in a state Of love ( A Conscious Revolution ) [Verse Three – Cale Sampson] Throughout our whole lives we’ve been made to believe That were just little people who are powerless and weak That were insignificant, in the higher scheme a things But it’s a lie, the opposite is reality So don’t believe, the false history we’ve been taught It’s time to talk to our neighbours and turn the television off Take responsibility for your actions and thoughts And realize the true potential that you’ve got Cuz once you understand the way that energy works You’ll feel connected to each other and the earth Then you’ll listen to your heart when it’s speaking to you And start to do the right thing, in all that you do Our collective consciousness has to decide To be in a state of love and no longer comply So were fully empowered, now step away from the fear And start to lead by example, the revolution is here [Chorus x 2 – Rupert Harvey] We are Powerful, with unlimited potential When were in a state Of love ( A Conscious Revolution )

Artist: Cale Sampson Album: The Big Picture Song: The Money Song [Chorus] “Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 4 “The people united will never be defeated” X 8 [Verse One] In Seventeen-seventy-five, the American Revolutionary war began Because King George the Third of England had banned The independent interest-free currency system That the colonies used and produced on their own Forcing them to instead borrow money as loans From the Central Bank of England, at interest Which would immediately put their country into debt Eight years later America won Their freedom and independence from England But their battle against the central bank system And it’s corrupt nature had only just begun Cuz’ by the early Nineteen-Hundreds, a few Central banks had been created and removed And at this time, the most dominant men Were J.D. Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan Paul Warburg and Baron Rothschild Who colluded at a place called Jekyll island After manufacturing a financial panic That the public didn’t know had actually been planned as The spark, they needed to initiate their plan Of implementing another central bank yet again And in Nineteen-Ten a meeting occurred In secrecy between these rival bankers This is where the Federal Reserve Act was written By bankers and not by politicians A cartel agreement to stop competition And make money from nothing with the Government’s permission A central banking bill was constructed And fronted as keeping the public protected But this couldn’t be further from the truth Because private monopoly was at it’s very root In Nineteen-Thirteen, Woodrow Wilson Became president than he signed this bill in-to Law for the bankers, as an exchange For the financial support they gave to his campaign This is when the government’s power ended And control of their money supply was surrendered To the Federal reserve, a central bank Just like the founding fathers had fought to escape Cuz’ for the last hundred years, and still currently The Fed loans the government all its currency With automatic interest attached to it all So that ever paying off the debt is impossible A privately owned agency that decides How much dollars in circulation is supplied As well as controlling the interest rates Means it controls the whole U.S. economy’s fate And today, the federal reserve still refuses To send their budget for congress to review it There’s almost no regulation or oversight By government, so the Fed does whatever it likes With the Country’s and it’s taxpayers money The fact it’s never been audited just stuns me Cuz’ the public, don’t even elect the chairmen People like Ben Bernanke n’ Alan Greenspan Who basically make all financial decisions That dictate the state which we all have to live in Cuz’ they’re at the top, not politicians And were just the pawns in this central bank system [Chorus] “The people united will never be defeated” X 8 “Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 8 [Verse Two] The global recession in Two thousand and eight Doubled the national debt of the United States And due to international financial markets It cost the rest of the world, trillions of dollars As millions lost their life savings and homes Foreclosures and unemployment rose While the C.E.O’s, who caused the crash Walked away from it with their fortunes intact Once wall street got bailed out and saved They were supposed to use that money to create New jobs, by lending it to small businessmen So that an economic recovery could begin Instead the big banks just kept all the cash And used it to pay huge bonuses to their execs Then used it, to take over smaller banks And profited cuz’ there’s no one to compete against In the U.S., banks are now bigger than ever and more powerful due to fewer competitors While the financial sector’s worked harder than before After the crisis, to fight any reform The banking lobbyists basically own Congress and influence how everything is controlled Even Barrack Obama’s largest campaign donor Was Goldman Sachs who gave him a million dollars With ten million from Wall Street combined On his way to becoming President in oh nine So no matter how eloquent his speeches were He’s still beholden to these power brokers That’s why after taking office, his staff Was filled with former people from Goldman Sachs And he named the same men as his advisors Who were key players in causing the crisis Such as Larry Summers and Timothy Geithner Who both helped to create this financial nightmare Now potential for conflicts of interest are large Cuz’ the whole situation is still ripe for fraud The CEO’s who scammed beyond belief And should be going to jail are allowed to walk free Cuz’ not a single one of those executives Have been prosecuted or ever arrested Instead, were still in their stranglehold And this needs to change as soon as possible Cuz’ the whole world is basically bankrupt now And in debt to itself owing impossible amounts The only way to stop this from destructing Is by increasing real world production Which has to grow, faster each day To keep pace with all the debt that our world creates But there’s not enough resources on the earth To keep this going on forever, it’s not gonna work That’s why Mathematically there’s a pending crash And our entire money system’s on the verge of collapse While the world at large still remains blind To how the banking system is controlling our lives Through never ending debt and there’s no way out It’s important the public starts to figure this out It’s the most important subject in fact For people to understand and begin to look at Cuz’ our whole way of life now, just may be doomed Unless some of these problems are fixed very soon [Chorus] “Banks get bailed out ( we get sold out )” X 8 “The people united will never be defeated” X12
