Track Name: Greenwashed (Ludlow)
Licking pesticide residue off unsuspecting finger tips
Little did you know the soil in which this food is grown is drenched in blood
Innocent blood

Which of your values are you going to cash in for a profit?
How much are you willing to give up for a lousy buck?
You swore you were different and for a minute I believed it.

But you're a wolf in sheep's clothing
Standing right in front of me, a monster hiding in plain sight
And you couldn't stop the greed
Oh don't you see that you've become exactly what you were fighting?

Shake the shackles off my ankles and my wrists
Remind myself I don't deserve this
They'll see how far they can stretch you thin until you're shaking from exhaustion
David picks up pennies while he's sweeping
Says that's how he affords to keep eating on the days before we get paid
When will the minimum become a living wage?

Food's a right, not a privilege and I'm tired of working to survive
Grasping for something real, I can barely keep my head above
I'm drowning in it all, I'm drowning in it all

You're a wolf in sheep's clothing
Standing right in front of me, a monster hiding in plain sight
And you couldn't stop the greed
Oh don't you see that you've become exactly what you were fighting?

Which of your values are you going to cash in for a profit?
How much are you willing to give up for a lousy buck?

Cut labor, double output
You're just another piece of their well oiled machine
And they won't call it slavery because this is voluntary
But is it really? Oh is it really?
Track Name: Bumpersticker (Ludlow)
They dammed the fish now we're damned ourselves
They've built a market that's got freedom for sale
And its powered by slave labor and prison cells
Oh, the earth is getting hotter but it's already felt like hell

We need to get our rivers back to the sea
We need to stop this corporate machine
That in the name of profit has been killing everything
We need a resistance of you's and me's

Cause we've been at war, that's for goddamn sure
And we're not gonna save ourselves with a government issued voucher
Cause business is good, yeah it's great
And long ago wealthy fascists bought out the state

So, Im tired of turning their wrenches and being fucking lied to
I'm tired of building products that I can't even use
All for a dollar or a handful of bucks
Trading away my time and health for some rich fuck

And I've spent my life working for money I already spent
And if property is robbery then so is fucking rent
They're treating people like some cheap resource
And if you don't submit to it they'll use the police force

We're worked were buried in collars and cuffs
And I'm starting to feel like there's a joke being played on us
Yeah, we're worked were buried in collars and cuffs
And I'm starting to feel like there's a joke being played on us!

For every gigatonne of greenhouse gas that they release
And every bomb dropped in the Middle East
And every racist cop who ends another life
And every hungry family without food tonight

Cause we're all fighting on different fronts
So grab a pen or grab a gun

When did welfare become such a slur
And why are we blaming women of color
While corporate trash is being subsidized
With our tax dollars to lower a market price

And they fucked the air and they fucked the water
They've turned our food into plastic and slaughter
Making us vote between two big brothers
But patriarchy is just another abusive fucking father

And the privilege they give to us, its self defense
It's simple chess, it's common sense
The middle class is a buffer zone
And the United States is the next empire of Rome

So raise us out of poverty what a fucking joke
That's gonna take a whole hell of a lot of rope
Cause this economic system thrives on poor folks
And the mass of unemployed workers is keeping our wages low
