Lyrics:

How am I going to make a billion dollars today
I'll take wars pain and suffering, exploit them to get paid
I'll have to lie, pretend it doesn't bother me to know that people died
Maybe I'll just make a million dollars today

How am I going to make a million dollars today
I'll steal people's savings and retirements from the stock market place
I'd have to lie, but I wouldn't ever have to look them in the eye
I'll just make a thousand dollars today

How am I going to make a thousand dollars today
I'll grab a gun, rob a liquor store and make them open up the motherfucking safe
I'll have to lie, I'll never get to tell my friends and family good bye
Guess I'll just make a hundred dollars today

How am I going to make a hundred dollars today
I'll act like a gangsta and get caught up in the cocaine game
I'd have to lie, forget what I'm selling is destroying peoples lives
So I'll just make a couple dollars today

So how am I going to make a couple dollars today
I'll take my guitar to the streets and play it for peoples change
I'll have to lie, I'm not homeless so I'm going to need an alibi
Still I got to make a couple dollars today
Make money

People making money and they know they're living wrong
They lie to everybody like I tell you in this song
But you cant lie to yourself, don't know how they sleep at night
Somehow they figured how to extradite
Their guilty conscience into international
Waters and dropped of the abyss wall
Sinks to the bottom so as not to be found
But we can wake up with one unified sound
Decide from now until the end we're going to fight
Against all these assailants trying to sneak us in the night
The cadence I'll be marching to on patrol
Is kinky reggae now, rock and soul
So what's it going to be? We going to change the world?
Does it take a hundred thousand million people in herds?
We start as one people changing our minds
We'll find no time for nickel and dimeing
