Moving Forward, Moving Faster

And every day it grows
Forcing these scavengers to trail in its wake
Feeding upon the scraps
Of torn paper (2x)
And leftover change

Charging forward
We watch as it passes
Crushing everything in its path

Nothing can ever stop this campaign
Not when everything in life revolves around this pain
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer
This monster moves

With no end in sight
This is what we created
With no end in sight

Creator of crime
Creator of deceit

After it passes what will be left?
There’s nothing getting better
Just worse and worse (2x)

Nothing can ever stop this campaign
Not when everything in life revolves around this pain
The rich get richer, the poor get poorer

For those of you who contribute to its growth
You’re only feeding this oil empire
Like throwing gas into this fire (3x)

Moving forward (2x)

    I believe this song is about money, or greed most people are filled with absolute greed, and as we all know a greed was known to be green, when in a greedy mood a mood ring would change green, green monster is about greed and money and money is the fuel source for absolute greed. More and more is being made everyday, money is usually the cause for crime and lies, we cannot see past our own filthy sinful lives and we only help ourselves when we are already so much better off with what we have! In closing, I believe Mitch was saying nothing good can come from greed and money, we need to be more open and loving and see the world around us and give back from what we took, give it to people who need it more than us! Haiti! The children in Africa! Anything that goes to a good cause, they could more than likely need that money more than us.

    This band is from my hometown and theres a green monster legend here. I wonder if it had aything to do with the song. I know the lyrics dont fit it, but heres the story for anyone interested.

    Riverside Bridge - Supposedly, the now dry
    riverbed used to house a green "monster." This
    "monster" was reportedly seen on one occasion when it
    came up on the bridge and attacked the passenger of a
    car. Green residue was the only evidence left behind on
    this meet-and-greet with civilization.
