I'm sitting in the supermarket
On the disposable shelf
I'm kinda like a sandwich
I kinda need some help
Most people they pass me up
Some stop and buy
But when they take me home
They never look in my eye

The supermarket shelf is a lie
I know, we saw
The guy from the record company
Makes me wanna die

Everybody sells and everybody buys
People who don't like that get blood in the eye
Everybody sells and everybody buys
People who don't like that get blood,
Get blood in the eye

I'm proud of the corporate logo
Written on my box
It says that I'm ok
For the company stock
What I am I do not own
I don't know who does
Maybe any, some institution
With no flesh, flesh or blood

The supermarket shelf is a lie
I know, we saw
The guy from the record company
Makes me wanna die

Everybody sells and everybody buys
People who don't like that get blood in the eye
Everybody sells and everybody buys
People who don't like that get blood,
Get blood in the eye

Everybody sells and everybody buys
Everybody sells and everybody buys
Everybody sells and everybody buys
Everybody sells and everybody buys
