Children of the world will learn to live without

Tonight; they’re the little dog in a monumental fight

Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?

A fire burns bright, smoke billows in from the south

While one percent dine in fire light,

Children of the world will learn to live without

How can they be hungry with bread in their mouth?

We sent pennies last month to our conscience delight

Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?

The other side couldn’t understand drought

The desert is caught in a different water fight

Children of the world will learn to live without

White fence, big yard, the American dream no doubt

Long hours, work hard, focus on what’s in plain sight

Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?

So many cry at the dreadful sound

So many shy at the appalling sight

Children of the world will learn to live without

Isn’t that what capitalism is all about?
