Story

This song says that Capitalism is our religion. It poses many questions about our society and doesn't really give answers but leaves one thinking. Isn't there a better way?

Lyrics

Let The Buyer Beware

 

You say that you are nobody's fool

And keep on thinking you're the exception to the rule

But honey, when it comes to corruption

Everbody's got their hands into something

 

This world it has but one religion

And that, my friend, is capitalism

One law throughout the land

Hurry, hurry, take as much as you can

Money is the honey it grooves the busy bees

And if we boycott, then they'll be down on their knees

 

So let the buyer beware

In him lies the power of change

Let the people compare

And examine what's behind the name

 

AIDS and cancer, who's got the answer?

I know there must be a cure

But if it doesn't line a corporate pocket

Then AIDS and cancer we must endure

 

Pre-chorus

 

So let the buyer beware

In her lies the power of change

Let the people compare

And examine what's behind the name

 

See that woman on the screen

And lookin' so fine in the magazine

Her sexiness is just a job

And so she helps a man to rob

As long as he gets what he needs

It doesn't matter who he bleeds

For she's denied her heart's demand

To be a puppet in his hands
