Lyrics
We're all buying, and selling
We're buying and selling each other
We're all trading, negotiating
Our precious time together

We're buying five and selling five
But we're not breaking even
We're merchandising and advertising
And someone is believing

It's a wonder that we ever let this start
Now it might not stop until it falls apart

We're all speculating and calculating
For markets we're competing
We're spending on defending
While ol' history's repeating

It's a covenant with the government
To spend more than we borrow
We're ingenious for convenience
While there might be no tomorrow

It's a wonder that we cannot make it stop
When it gets to the bottom, don't go back up to the top

We're all signing loans and refining stones
We're brokering things on credit
We're proving things by moving things
But we've got nowhere to set it

We're all buying, and selling
We're buying and selling each other
We're trading, negotiating
Our precious time together

Buying, and selling,
We're buying and selling our brother
Trading, negotiating
The body of our Mother
