The thieves on the Wall
Are telling their lies
The puppets they pull
Collecting their bribes

Pimps in the Valley
Drown you in slime
The video idiots
Corrupted your mind

Far past time
Blow away the smoke
Smash all the mirrors
End this sick joke
Nation of equals
What a cruel hoax

Can't you see?
Don't you know?

Your neighbor is hungry
And rolling in pain
In a land of excess
Don't you feel so ashamed?

I feel so ashamed
God, I feel so ashamed
Yes, I'm ashamed
Ashamed...

The boys at The Bank
Injected more funds
Billionaires dance
The poor feast on crumbs

Volunteer lady
Works overtime
The needy keep coming
She's losing her mind

Can't you see?
Don't you know?

Your neighbor is hungry
And rolling in pain
In a land of excess
Don't you feel so ashamed?

I feel so ashamed
God, I feel so ashamed
Yes, I'm ashamed
Ashamed

The video idiots corrupted your mind
