G              D
Don't trust 'em as far
                 Em C D
As you can throw 'em
G                             D
Because as strong as you may be
                      Em           C  D
You won't be able to move 'em an inch

G                              D
But you don't have to believe me
     Em                C 
Go ahead and be the corporate stooge
That they trained you to be
                G             D                  Em C D
And then you'll see what you get for your loyalty

G                   D
They call it, 'Down sizing'
                  Em         C     D
But that's just a backhanded saying
G                             D
For the phrase, 'We're gonna screw you
             Em            C     D
Until you're down on your knees'

G                   D
And you better not try to complain
                 Em               C           D
Because there's another hundred stiffs like you
All who'd plead, I'd kiss your ass just for a chance
         D                   Em C D
To be a whore to your company

G                     D
You see it every day, everywhere
       Em C     D
On the TV screen
G                             D
Each time a different face or family
         Em         C   D
But it's always the same

"We worked here all our lives
Gave them everything we had
    Em                   C               D
And now they say they're gonna move the factory
     G                              D          Em C D
To a Third World country where the labour is cheap

D                Em           C
But the fact, my friend, that you don't see
       D         Em           C
Is the money you spend on the goods they make
               D          Em           C
Supports their methods of abuse on the Third World scene
            D        Em                  C
And in your very own backyard, yes, your country

G                 D                  Em         C  D
So I won't be the consumer that they want me to be
G                   D                   Em     C    D
Because the goods I own aren't going to set me free
G                   D                 Em       C  D
So I won't buy that crap they want to sell to me
G                   D             Em
Because the goods I own won't set anyone free
