Mustard Plug – Who Benefits? lyrics

Woke up this morning
Another building torn down
Not by a plane
By a parking lot

Think of every person that has walked into the door
Think of every tear that was shed upon the floor
Every baby's cry answered, every lover's sigh met
And I know, yes I know, there was life inside it yet
I ask you...

Who benefits? When the contract has been signed?
Who benefits? Generations down the line
Who benefits? Who's the victim of the crime
Yeah the money's in your pocket and it happens every time

Never knew brick and mortar so easy to displace
Never knew steel and timber was so easy to erase
Just some greed, some greed, a touch of ego too
To crucify the memory of all we once knew
I ask you...
