Move Around Money

Concrete and chrome, I'm spending time
Getting more of what's yours for less of mine
In fluorescent daylight above the ground
Nobody's life's made richer, money moves around

The transfer of wealth is the greatest good
Don't use imagination if you think you could
Art's by corporations, mass produced today
It's more uniform, consistent and it's faster that way

To move around money
Watch it fly
Move around money
Money never dies

Why bother living when you got TV
Easy as changing channels I know what I want to see
Who's got time to consider what it means to be free
I got sitcoms and commercials that's enough for me

I'm bought and sold, I'm glad I got the chance
To express myself with Gap khaki pants
I think I'll make a statement, I've got something to say
I use American Express when I'm asked to pay

Chorus

I know they care how I feel at my company
'Cause getting sad's bad for productivity
They say added value's what they really want from me
Since I was little is that what I hoped to be

This is the real world not make believe
If money doesn't make you happy then you'd better just leave
You got to make a living so that you can someday
Comfortably regret the life that slipped away

Move around money
Watch it fly
Move around money
Money never dies
Move around money
While you got your chance
Move around money
You can watch it dance
