lyrics

Vow to Surrender


there is a new system & it’s
& it’s called McDonomics
you can only be there if you
if you vow to surrender
everything about you that could
that could get in the way of profits
and you can only be an artist
if you learn to market

o – o – o – o – o –
money pays my bills
o – o – o – o – o –
so I vow to surrender
vow to surrender

there was a world election & the
& the United States won
everybody voted & we
we all vowed to surrender
everything about us that made us
made us different from others
and we also lost everything
that we really had in common

o – o – o – o – o –
money pays my bills
o – o – o – o – o –
so I vow to surrender
vow to surrender

say you don’t remember voting
for the United States
you vote with your pocket every
every time you spend money
I have made a promise to the
to the landscape around me
not to the let the promises of
of advertising confound me

o – o – o – o – o –
money pays my bills
o – o – o – o – o –
but I vow to remember
o – o – o – o – o –
money pays my bills
o – o – o – o – o –
but I vow to remember
vow to remember
vow not to surrender –
I vow to remember
