Phantom Planet – Turn Smile Shift Repeat lyrics

Here they come the business men like a herd of cattle rumbling in
The exchange has officially begun
Now all the offices are buzzing the executives are busy bees
They watch the gears turn in the employees
They just turn smile shift repeat
There's a crowd forming on wallstreet near the tallest building on the block
A suit has lost his fortune to the stocks
There was no time to see his fatal flaw the madness set in with the loss
Now he cuts at throats to watch the heads fall off
They just turn smile shift repeat

Decimal points and dollar signs taxes penalties and fines
He's come to cut you down
Numbers passwords protocol it's not enough to save your soul
He's come to cut you down
Bring you right back to zero
They just turn smile shift repeat
