Graverobber: Industrialization has crippled the globe.

Loudpseaker: Enjoy GeneCo's day and nighttime formulas of Zydrate

Graverobber: Nature failed as technology spread.

Loudpseaker: Ask a Gentern if Zydrate is right for you

Graverobber: And in it's wake, a market erected.

Loudspeaker: Buying Zydrate from an unliscenced source is illegal

Graverobber: An entire city built on top of the dead!

And you can finance your bones and your kidneys.
For every market a submarket grows.
But best you be punctual with making your payments
Lest it be you on the concrete below~

It's quick, it's clean, and it's pure.
It could change your life, rest assured.
It's the 21st Century Cure!
And it's my job, to steal and rob...
Gra~ves!

So why care for these petty obsessions?
Your designer heart still beats with common blood!
And what if you could have genetic perfection,
Would you change who you are, if you could?
'Cause it's quick, it's clean, and it's pure! (All you really need is)
It could change your life, rest assured. (All you got to have is)
It's the 21st Century Cure! (All you need is surgery! )
And it's my job, to steal and rob...
Gra~ves!
Gra~ves!
