lyrics

The drones they fight the wars for you
Surveillance your activities too
No one will be left uncoded
‘Til every thought is noted

Keep your money in Switzerland
The Grand Caymen’s nice this time of year
Big bucks to fund the wars
Contracts to build the jails
But don’t look over here
If they do, pump them with fear

Year Keep Calm and Carry on,
Keep Calm and Carry On

People livin’ in poverty
Can’t make ends meet and can’t be seen
For $6.55 an hour in the hole
$7.25, you’re back in control
30 days to 1 hour of pay
Sell your soul for $50 a day

Yeah, Keep Calm and Carry on
Keep Calm and Carry on
Buried in debt and there’s no way out
You had to have it all, you couldn’t live without
Get another job, kiss your family goodbye
500 billion in advertisement
Just put it on credit where credit is due
Interest til you die, incarceration too

But Keep Calm and Carry on
Keep Calm and Carry on

Get high on a sunny day
If you’re not careful, they’ll put you away
Not for your cancer, not for your fun
The war on drugs has taken your freedom
1.5 million in jail
Unless your rich and you didn’t inhale

Yeah Keep calm and Carry on
KCCO, KCCO, KCCO

Eat three servings of dairy a day
Lithium will make it go away
The sun will give you cancer better stay inside
Watch real life until your brain is fried
The Russians aren’t too far from the moon
What if we all die soon?

While we fight for equality
Monsanto took control of society
I tell you it’s downhill from here
Unless we overcome fear

Don’t Keep Calm and Carry On
Keep Calm and Carry On
Keep Calm and Carry On
Don’t Keep Calm and Carry On
