song 11 of 11 of cornfield - thanks for listening and commenting

my friends all talk of vain regrets, complain about their cigarettes
the more you give the more you take and bribe you with a discount steak
oh, what the wobblies wouldn't say
the working man is on the rack, reams of paper, heart attacks
they make up lies double quick, they make up lies in triplicate
oh, what the union reps won't say
alarm clock rings but there's nobody answering
the crack of doom but there's nobody answering
the call to arms but there's nobody answering
new jerusalem but there's nobody answering

it's the government, it's the plan, it's the bankrupt superman
it's oceans in tall towers that never trickle into showers
oh, just who are we to blame?
throw the tea bags to the wind, we're broken cause an apple sinned
we're paying for this chinese stuff, maybe we didn't care enough
oh, just who are we to blame
the alarm clock rings but there's nobody answering
the sheep look up but there's nobody answering
scotty, beam me up but there's nobody answering
vote for change but there's nobody answering

my friends defend their losing bets, complain about their cigarettes
while their lisence plates all rust, shop at walmart and go bust
we're free to pick any chain we like
don't tell me it can't go on, 30 years it still goes on
vacant lots and broken bricks and moving way out to the sticks
we're free to go broke how we like
the alarm clock rings but there's nobody answering
kate smith sings but there's nobody answering
the kids rock and roll but there's nobody answering
adman sleaseargeddon but there's nobody answering
